Acupuncture for Infertility

Infertility:

Infertility is when a couple fails to conceive (get pregnant) despite having regular unprotected sex. Although one in seven couples has difficulty conceiving, the number of couples who are actually infertile is relatively low.

About 85% of couples will conceive naturally within one year if they have regular unprotected sex.

Therefore, you will only be diagnosed as infertile if you have not managed to have a baby after two years of trying by your GP. If you have never conceived a child, it is known as primary infertility. Secondary infertility is when you have had one or more babies in the past, but you are having difficulty conceiving again.

Some women get pregnant very quickly but, for others, it can take longer. If you are a woman over the age of 35, or you are already aware that you may have fertility problems, then you should see your GP first. They may be able to check for common causes and suggest treatments that could help. If fertility problems are diagnosed, there are many different treatments and procedures that may be available to you.

Can acupuncture be used to treat infertility?

Acupuncture, frequently combined with herbal medicine, has been used for centuries to treat some causes of infertility. For example, acupuncture and herbs will not work to address tubal adhesions which can occur as a result of pelvic inflammatory disease or endometriosis. However, in this situation, an individual could still benefit from acupuncture and herbs because of the potential effect of improved ovarian and follicular function. Additionally, it is shown that acupuncture can increase blood flow to the endometrium, helping to facilitate a thick, rich lining.

We have a very high successful rate to treat patients with infertility problems. We are very proud of our skills and would like to promote ourselves to help patients from around the UK. Normally our patients have tried many other treatments provided by GPs, other alternative methods before they come to us and we still achieve very good results. Some of our patients are in their 40s and were told by their GP to give up. We are very glad to say we were still able to treat patients of such kind successfully *.

We will make diagnosis for each individual patient and come up with different treatments according to the specific condition. Therefore, patients need to ring us to book an appointment for a free initial consultation first before starting a treatment.

What Our Patients Say

  • ~ Wow what a difference it has made – Ron, Shrewsbury

    "Published in 'AS News - Spring 2016'.  After much thought and a little research, I decided to give acupuncture a chance. Wow what a difference it has made. I'm unsure of the total effect on pain relief but it has had an immense impact on my overall sense of body relaxation and physical and mental well being. In Autumn 2015 after a little additional neck pain, my acupuncturist massaged my neck following my acupuncture session. She then explained she did also offer acupressure massage. After just three sessions I am wholly committed to this. The effect on my neck and shoulders has been amazing plus the overall whole body experience is really profound. A hour of acupressure massage, possibly alongside acupuncture, could be considered a useful contribution to AS therapeutic treatment"
