Infertility & IVF
Acupuncture and Infertility
After working for a few years in Central London it was very evident that more and more women were having trouble starting a family. It can be a very stressfull and upsetting thing to go through for a couple, and I would often meet desperate women looking for help. Acupuncture and chinese herbs can address fertility in many ways.
Acupuncture can help the hormone balance within the body, ensuring the menstrual cycle is working efficiently ready to conceive. It can also help with many gynecological problems such as polycystic ovaries and endometriosis. If the problem is more medical acupuncture can be used support IVF cycles and help prepare the body for pregnancy making IVF more likely to succeed.
I can also give lifestyle advice on ways to ensure the body is prepared for a pregnancy and help with getting to know ones cycle. Another important factor is stress which can play a big part in preventing a pregnancy, acupuncture can address this as well.
