In a study of 160 women, published April 2002 in the reproductive journal Fertility and Sterility, a group of German researchers found that adding acupuncture to the IVF treatment protocols substantially increased pregnancy success.
The benefits of Acupuncture and TCM in treatment for the infertile couple can be early Chinese medical literature dating back to 11 AD. Not only do these regulating the menstrual cycle and invigorating the sperm, but they also serve to enhance the function of the whole body. This “whole body” health approach, in turn, provides a key to unlock unlimited potential in healing. This is especially appropriate for the over 40 couple as it stimulates overall health to effect reproductive health and reduce biological age.
Infertility, as well as many other gynecologic disorders can be treated with the help of acupuncture and TCM. When skillfully applied, acupuncture therapy and TCM prepared from different herbs, are effective in correcting many of the imbalances which underlie the physical and hormonal disorders which lead to reduced fertility or infertility.
The treatment of infertility with acupuncture usually requires a commitment to enough time to rebalance the body’s systems. If there are menstrual problems, then treatment must proceed until at least 3 normal cycles are achieved. From there, you should give yourself at least 6 months, and preferably 18 months, to achieve pregnancy.
