If you are trying for a baby, acupuncture is a natural, holistic approach to aiding conception.
Research has shown it can be effective in regulating the menstrual cycle, improving blood circulation to the reproduction organs, improving the lining of the uterus and improving the quality of egg production. Acupuncture can also be effective in helping women who have specific gynaecological conditions, for example, endometriosis and polycystic ovaries. Conditions which are associated with reduced chances of conceiving. For males, acupuncture can help improve the quality and quantity of sperm.
Having regular acupuncture treatment can help to reduce stress and anxiety, which many couples experience when trying to conceive. Stress can affect hormonal balance and the menstrual cycle. Acupuncture helps to reduce stress due to its beta-endorphin release and sympathetic calming effect.
Acupuncture can help to improve well-being in general, creating the correct environment for fertility and pregnancy.

Research results clearly show a positive association between acupuncture treatment and increased success rates with IVF.
