Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture for Fertility

Chinese Fertility Treatment

Fertility is an area of particular expertise at the clinic, with many years of experience and notable levels of success through a combination of acupuncture and herbal remedies.

Approximately one in six to ten couples experience problems with fertility with innumerable women grieving the loss of a potential child once a month and loosing a little more hope with each period that passes.

While there are specific reasons for pregnancy not occurring, 'unexplained fertility' represents one of the more frequent diagnosis in women. In the case of unexplained fertility there appears to be no medical explanation why there are fertility problems. This does not mean that there is no reason or no problem. It simply means that there is insufficient medical knowledge to identify it and therefore the solution is difficult to find.

Chinese fertility treatments

However Chinese Medicine is able to identify, explain and treat the subtle and undetected fertility imbalances that may interfere with a woman's ability to conceive. The key to effective treatment is that each individual's particular needs be addressed, to do this we must carefully examine the different stages of a woman's menstrual cycle along with every aspect of the body's health, emotions and lifestyle

Whether the problem is explained or unexplained Chinese Medicine offers sophisticated and effective courses of treatment to promote the body's ability to conceive. There are no side effects with treatment.

It is worth noting that Chinese fertility treatments work very well alone but will also increase the likelihood of conception if you do opt for the western fertility drugs or medically assisted fertilisation techniques. Studies have shown that acupuncture can increase the success rate of pregnancy in women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) to up to 60%.
