Acupuncture for Fertility

According to the CDC, about 12% of US women aged 15-44 experience impaired fertility. Although there are a number of fertility treatment options available today, not everyone is comfortable with using some of those options. And some women cannot afford expensive fertility treatments.

Acupuncture helps address issues that cause infertility, including thyroid issues (both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism), Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), and endometriosis.

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine help bring the body back to a natural state of homeostasis or balance. This means that acupuncture can help you conceive naturally. It can also be a support for boosting the outcome of IVF and IVU.

Carolina Family Acupuncture supports women on their journey to motherhood. From conception to birth, acupuncture can help support you for a healthy, natural pregnancy.

How Does Acupuncture Support Fertility?

  • Helps reduce stress and inflammation within the body
  • Has been shown to regulate the endocrine system of the body
  • Balances hormones and regulates menstruation
  • Increases blood flow to the endometrium (the uterus lining), which aids in creating a thick, rich lining for implantation
  • Increases blood flow to the uterus and ovaries

We need to be proactive about our health and wellness instead of reactive against illnesses that could be prevented or minimized. Including acupuncture in your ongoing health regimen can keep your body balanced and functioning to its best ability.
