How Does Acupuncture Results in a High Conception Rate?

According to the CDC, “In the United States, 19% of heterosexual women between the age of 15 and 49 are unable to conceive”. While there can be different causes of its occurrence in a woman, it is not easy to deal with this problem at all. Although advanced healthcare solutions and medical equipment can help couples treat infertility with fertility drugs or surgery, major treatments are not affordable for everyone.

On the other hand, acupuncture comes up as an inexpensive and effective treatment for infertility.

What is acupuncture & how does it help?

Acupuncture, a 3,000-year-old remedy, is a general practice among acupuncturists and a publicly accepted procedure. It helps relieve stress and increases the blood flow, further providing blood to reproductive organs, and increasing fertility. In addition, it helps fight the effects of stress by releasing endorphins in the brain.

The core objective of acupuncture in Albany is to help the patient improve fertility for a long time and not for a short period. While there are several benefits of acupuncture treatment, one of the best ones is that it improves blood flow; as a result, blood flows to the ovaries and uterus, which increases the chances of better egg nourishment.

Another benefit covers our overall health and body functions. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theory sees qi as significant energy that circulates throughout the body. It regulates mental and physical balance in the body. With low qi, females become prone to multiple problems, resulting in pain or diseases like infertility. Acupuncture helps improve qi, hence making it possible for many couples to conceive.

The causes of female infertility lie in problems like endometriosis and anovulation. Acupuncture treatment helps improve almost all the causes of infertility.

Stress can prevent pregnancy in women. Where you are stressed, cortisol is released in the brain, disrupting the neurochemical balance and altering the pituitary balance that plays a key role in the entire reproduction cycle. Fortunately, acupuncture treatment helps reduce stress and increases fertility.

An over- or under-functioning thyroid can also affect pregnancy in women. Acupuncture can help reduce the effects of this dysfunction on fertility. It is used for multiple types of fertility problems, such as spasmed tubes; so, acupuncture is usually helpful in de-spasming spasmed tubes. While it is highly effective, it cannot be used to treat tubal adhesion problems. Therefore, one should also avoid acupuncture for the abdominopelvic area.

Acupuncture is a Chinese medicine concept that is powerful and efficient in helping women remain healthy during one of the most critical phases of their lives – pregnancy. Beyond resolving physical and mental issues related to infertility in women, it helps treat multiple problems too.

As a woman, if you have been dealing with infertility for some time now, it is highly recommended to see a fertility specialist who practices acupuncture for the best fertility acupuncture in Albany.
