Natural Fertility Enhancement

Have you been trying to conceive? You may want to consider acupuncture and/or Chinese herbal medicine to enhance your chance of becoming pregnant. Does one or more of the following apply to your condition?

  • I have been trying to conceive for over 12 months (or 6 months if you are over 35 years old)
  • I want to conceive naturally
  • I have a history of miscarriages in the past (one or more)
  • I am in an advanced maternal age (age 35 and older)
  • I was diagnosed with endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
  • I have been diagnosed with low ovarian reserve (low AMH, high FSH etc.)
  • ​I am going to have an intrauterine insemination (IUI) for the first time
  • I had a failed IUI, and am going for another
  • I am going to have in-vitro fertilization (IVF) for the first time
  • I had a failed IVF(s) and I am going for another
  • I have a short luteal phase (Luteal Phase Defect)


How does acupuncture enhance your fertility?Acupuncture_Infertility_Toronto
  • It regulates the hormone balance naturally by stimulating the nervous system and acting on the Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Ovarian axis, and hence it regulates menstruation.​
  • It promote the blood flow to the reproductive organs, including the ovaries and uterus, which also helps improve the thickness of the endometrium and implantation.
  • It improves the ovarian function by  balancing  hormones and promoting blood flow to the ovaries. This may help your ovarian function so that less stimulating drugs will be needed.
  • It reduces stress and makes you feel relaxed by harmonizing and calming the sympathetic nervous system. This is one of the important roles in acupuncture because it is reported that high stress reduces fertility. It also reduces uterine contractions and spasms of the fallopian tubes, which may help increase the success of IVF/IUI and prevent miscarriages.
  • It reduces miscarriages by balancing hormones, promoting the blood flow (more nutrition for the embryo/fetus), and reducing uterine contractions.
  • It improves the immune system. Women with immunological factors hostile to pregnancy may be effectively treated with acupuncture and herbal medicine.
  • It reduces pain after surgical procedures such as egg retrieval and endometrial biopsy by releasing the endorphins (natural pain killer) from the brain.
