Acupuncture for Infertility and IVF

Pregnant WomanThe drive to conceive is a strong one. You may have been trying to conceive unsuccessfully or are beginning your quest at an age where your chances are statistically reduced.

 

Perhaps you are undergoing or planning to begin In Vitro Fertilization treatments (IVF) to address infertility and want to do things that can boost your chances of success…to contribute to the effort wherever you can.

The IVF treatment does the primary work of helping you conceive. However, you can help control the chemical and hormonal balance within your body through non-drug methods.

I can help you with the parts you can control.

There is strong evidence that infertility increases dramatically during severely stressful situations like imprisonment or war. It is believed that the stressful situation triggers hormonal changes that cease menstruation in order to optimize survival for both the mother and fetus/infant. One study showed that 94% of interred women ceased menses during their internment with all but 9% returning to normal within 1 year after release.

Ninety Four Percent !

Ok, so you are not in war, but one has to wonder if lower levels of stress also negatively impact fertility.

Another more realistic study shows women undergoing job changes have significantly shorter cycles and job change does not even make the top ten list of stressors ! Looming school tests even impact the cycles of young women.

Moreover, for many women I treat, the experience of infertility creates its own significant stress.
