Should You Consider Acupuncture for Fertility In San Francisco?

We understand the frustration and the desire to conceive which many couples experience.  That’s one of the central areas of focus of our clinic here at Anchor Acupuncture & Wellness.  We have significant experience helping couples conceive, and it’s not just our job.  It’s one of our deepest joys, finding out one of our clients has gotten the positive result they’re looking for.
Obviously, there are a lot of clinics out there which say they can help with infertility.  Why would someone want to consider acupuncture for fertility in San Francisco?  Here are some of the most common reasons that come up in our discussions with patients.
When You Should Consider Acupuncture for Fertility In San Francisco

  1. You want a simple, natural approach.

There are a lot of very invasive techniques for achieving fertility out there, and some of them can be downright unpleasant to undergo.  Hormone pills, injections, egg retrieval, IVF…  it’s almost impossible not to get stressed out, yet stress is a major  contributor to infertility.
Acupuncture is simple, natural, and has been in use for at least 2,500 years.  Plus, after a session, you’ll feel good!

  1. Cost is an issue.

Procedures like in-vitro fertilization can be incredibly expensive, and may not even be covered by all insurance plans.  That puts a massive barrier in place between a couple and their natural right to grow their families.  However, acupuncture can help you overcome that barrier, being a far more affordable approach to Assisted Reproductive Technology, for many people.
(Some insurance plans even cover acupuncture treatment!)

  1. Other approaches haven’t worked.

We understand some people may be hesitant to try acupuncture – it’s a foreign concept to the medical culture most of us were exposed to, growing up in the States.  We want everyone to have children, that wants them!   We love babies!!  If other modalities  work for you, fantastic!  However, if you are at the end of the line with western medicine, remember that acupuncture is an option that’s been used for millennia.
