While infertility can be an issue with both men and women, it is the woman’s reproductive system that is the most complicated and finely-balanced and where acupuncture can be most helpful.

Acupuncture can assist women trying to become pregnant, whether naturally or using assisted reproductive technologies such as in-vitro fertilisation (IVF).

Acupuncture can regulate the menstual cycle, increase blood flow to the uterus, normalise hormone and endocrine activity, and reduce stress and anxiety.

The treatment should ideally start 12 weeks before any procedure or attempt to conceive and will continue weekly.
