How Acupuncture Can Help Improve Fertility in Women

Acupuncture is known to have countless health benefits. One that has been recognized and studied in-depth over recent years is the effect of acupuncture on women’s fertility. Gynaecological health institutes have studied this relationship to help understand how acupuncture can help improve fertility in women.

Experimental results from a study by the International Journal of Women’s Health investigated the potential benefits acupuncture can have for women’s fertility. This study included women suffering from reproductive disorders. The results were intriguing.

“An SR that undertook an overview of studies of acupuncture treatments for reproductive and gynaecological disorders found that menopause and dysmenorrhea were the most frequently studied, and acupuncture treatments had shown positive indicators of effectiveness.”

While clinical research is being carried out, the research concluded with this note: “Theoretically, from a Chinese medicine perspective, an acupuncture approach should prove effective for women with reproductive health problems.”

This information is optimistic and informative. It can help women improve their pre-pregnancy planning and health by being encouraged to incorporate acupuncture into their routine.  Acupuncture can help women to overcome irregular menses, reproductive problems, and heighten their fertility.  The use of acupuncture may also contribute to a healthier pregnancy.

For all these reasons, skilled acupuncturists often recommend acupuncture for women who have had trouble conceiving in the past. It can also be helpful for women with known reproductive issues that may make it harder for them to conceive a child.

Visiting an acupuncturist could provide favourable results and heightened chances of conception for women of all backgrounds. If you are trying to become pregnant, acupuncture could help you achieve that goal. If you’re being faced with reproductive issues or an irregular menstrual cycle, acupuncture can help you overcome these problems to increase your chances of conceiving naturally.

Once a woman has conceived a child, acupuncture can treat the physical side effects of pregnancy such as nausea and back pain.  Following birth, many women also find acupuncture to be beneficial for their recovery and on-going health.
