Acupuncture may help with various pregnancy issues

Fertility Acupuncture may help in the treatment of infertility by:

  • Regulating fertility hormones – stress and other factors can disrupt the function of the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis (HPOA). Acupuncture promotes the release of beta-endorphin in the brain, which regulates gonadotrophin-releasing hormone from the hypothalamus, a follicle-stimulating hormone from the pituitary gland, and oestrogen and progesterone levels from the ovary 
  • increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs can improve the thickness of the endometrial lining, increasing the chances of embryo implantation.
  • Increasing egg production and improving oocyte quality could increase the chance of fertilisation.
  • Enhancing luteal function 
  • regulating follicle stimulation hormone-receptor expression 
  • normalising cortisol and prolactin levels on IVF medication days, and reducing stress.
  • Promoting embryo implantation.
