Acupuncture to Improve Fertility
As an affiliated acupuncturist to the Zita West fertility clinics and a founder member of Dublin’s first integrated fertility clinic called Achieve Fertility . I have gained a huge amount of valuable experience in the fertility arena. I have worked with many couples trying to conceive and feel very privileged to have helped them to conceive and have healthy babies. If you are trying to get pregnant naturally and need help to regulate your menstrual cycle, improve egg /sperm quality, and ensure that you are both in the best possible health to get pregnant, nurture and sustain your pregnancy then Dan-tien acupuncture Clinic will help you to achieve your goal and have a healthy pregnancy.
Acupuncture increases fertility rates by:
- Increasing blood flow to the uterus and ovaries
- Thicken’s the endometrial lining
- Reduces the chance of miscarriage
- Regulate and stabilise hormone levels
- Help produce more follicles
- Strengthen the immune system and the overall health of your body
- Help developing foetus absorb nutrients and maintain ideal weight
- Faciliate relaxation & Reduce stress
- Improve the quality of sleep so you have more energy throughout the day
- Prevent Postpartum Depression
If you are concerned about high FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) or low AMH (anti mullerian hormone) levels indicating low fertility acupuncture and lifestyle changes can improve these results and thus your chances of conceiving. It is important to remember that factors such as vitamin D levels can dramatically reduce your AMH levels. If you are planning on having investigative tests such as these please be prepared for the results and the possible impacts they may have on you emotionally and your self esteem. It is important therefore to be in the best condition before having these tests acupuncture, diet, and lifestyle advice will help you to be in prime condition and hopefully avoid the need for these investigations. I have observed that many couples believe they have fertility problems and go straight for the medical intervention route before they have exhausted less intrusive methods to optimise their fertility.
If you undergoing A.R.T (Artificial Fertility Techniques) such as IVF (in-vitro fertilization) and ICSI (Intracytoplasmic sperm injection). I will work with you throughout the whole process, especially at the all important stages prior to egg retrieval and following embryo transfer. As this is a time sensitive stage I make myself available to clients even on Sundays and bank holidays. I have had great success in this area which supports a number of scientific studies showing that acupuncture increases the chances of a live birth following IVF by up to 65%,. See this link for more evidence based research on acupuncture and infertility.
“By the time we started our first cycle of IVF 3 months later there was a big improvement in both my husband sperm count and motility……..I am delighted to say we were successful again and our second daughter was born in 2009.”
“I was looking for help with my fertility. At 44, I was running out of time to havea baby and had been trying, unsuccessfully for some time. I was close to giving up. Over the following five months, Dave worked his magic, and along with a small amount of medical intervention, I became pregant in February 2009.”
“Amazingly, just as Dave had predicted, three months later I got a positive pregnancy test result! We are now expecting our first child and that isdefinitely thanks to the acupuncture.”
I had an extremely irregular monthly cycle and as a result this was not making things easy to conceive. I don’t doubt for a second that acupuncture helped, I honestly didn’t expect it to help so quickly. When I found out I was pregnant I kept going for the first trimester to help with the all day (there’s nothing morning about it!). It was of huge benefit to me and I could not recommend dan-tien enough. Thanks for everything. Jeanette
