Fertility

Acupuncture can help to boost fertility, to prepare the body for conception and pregnancy. Underlying conditions such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, Endometriosis, irregular cycles and hormone imbalances can also be treated with acupuncture. Often women are told they have "Unexplained Infertility” after western medical investigation. With a Chinese medicine diagnosis imbalances in the internal climate are revealed which are preventing conception and acupuncture treatment can often correct this resulting in a natural conception.

Acupuncture has been shown to increase the blood supply to the uterus, induce ovulation improve egg quality, regulate hormone imbalances and improve sperm quality. Acupuncture has been shown to increase the chances of IVF success by up to 60% (Effects of acupuncture on rates of pregnancy and live birth among women undergoing in vitro fertilisation: systematic review and meta-analysis. Eric Manheimer et al. BMJ, 7 Feb. 2008.)

I have been successful in treating both male and female fertility problems and have completed a post graduate course in the treatment of fertility with acupuncture. Treatment is tailored to the individual and diet and lifestyle is also looked at.
