Treating Infertility with Chinese Medicine

Infertility can imply the inability to get pregnant despite having unprotected intercourse frequently. Some common reasons for infertility include inadequate diet, stress, and exposure to certain chemicals.

Many women with fertility problems are turning to Traditional Chinese Medicine. A TCM practitioner, or acupuncturist, uses pulse and tongue diagnosis to understand more deeply what is happening in your body. Your acupuncturist will also want to take a look at your medical reports to gain an in-depth understanding of your condition from a western view as well.

An experienced acupuncturist knows that one size does not fit all. Two patients may both come with fertility issues; however, if the acupuncturist diagnoses that they have different accompanying conditions, they may create two different plans and two different herbal formulas.

Chinese herbs can bring enormous health benefits to both men and women with fertility issues. The Chinese have been using traditional herbs to treat several male and female fertility problems such as low sperm activity, premature ejaculation, non-ejaculation, low sperm count, loss of sex drive, and failure to achieve implantation since time immemorial.

Emotions such as anger and frustration linked with liver imbalances are among the most common causes of unexplained infertility in Chinese medicine. Chinese herbs are beneficial for treating psychological causes of infertility.

When a person with infertility struggles with negative emotions, their acupuncturist creates a unique formula and uses acupuncture to treat their infertility and depression.

Based on your diagnosis, your acupuncturist will create a treatment plan herbal formula, customized to where you are in life.
