Acupuncture can help to support fertility in many ways. During what can be an extremely stressful and worrying time, this is also an opportunity to stop, check in and breath. A confidential and discreet environment is guaranteed.
It is well accepted that stress can have profound affects on the physical body. This is especially true in relation to fertility for both men and women. Conception often becomes a very stressful goal in itself, as investigations and tests are pursued in an attempt to identify problems.
The fine balance of the endocrine (hormonal) system is often disrupted by ongoing stress, therefore affecting major influential stress and reproductive hormones. Acupuncture helps to relieve stress all over the body, increasing blood flow to major reproductive organs therefore bringing balance back to the endocrine (hormonal) system of the body.
Acupuncture is often used in preparation for IVF/ IUI or in combination with consultations and investigations. It is commonly used to help support the body pre and post transfer during IVF.
