Acupuncture for Fertility Research

A Way of Life Acupuncture uses proven techniques to treat infertility and enhance reproductive health in men and women. In addition, we provide specialized care in treating the following conditions that can affect reproduction and health:

  • Regulation of the menstrual cycles
  • Pre-menstrual Syndrome (PMS )
  • Endometriosis
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Blocked fallopian tubes
  • Certain causes of miscarriage
  • Decreased libido
  • Decreased sperm count, quality, and motility

Acupuncture is safe and effective in treating fertility issues and can be used alone or in conjunction with other fertility treatments. Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine are used to nourish, support, and strengthen the body.  We offer a safe and effective way to bring the body back into a balanced state and prepare the body for conception, healthy full-term pregnancy, and help ease delivery prep.

Let us help you start or grow your family. 

Acupuncture can help increase the chance of conception by:

  • Regulate hormones and the endocrine system, which regulate the menstrual cycle and ovulation
  • Stimulate ovulation
  • Increase blood supply to the uterus, improving ovum implantation once fertilized.
  • Relax the uterus
  • Affect the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, which plays a key role in fertility.
  • Regulate the central nervous system to regulate blood pressure and blood flow, as well as body temperature.
  • Stimulating the central nervous system cause neurotransmitters and neuro-hormones to be released, thereby boosting your body’s natural ability to heal itself. 

How We Can Help

Let us help you start or grow your family.

An article in a recent issue of Fertility and Sterility--co-authored by Dr. Zev Rosenwaks, Dr. Pak H. Chung, and Dr. Raymond Chang of Weill Cornell-- reports that acupuncture treatment has the following potential fertility-boosting benefits:

  • Increased blood flow to the uterus and therefore uterine wall thickness, an important marker for fertility.
  • Increased endorphin production, which, in turn, has been shown to affect the release of a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), a decapeptide involved in regulating reproduction.
  • Lower stress hormones are responsible for infertility.
  • Impact on plasma levels of the fertility hormones: follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), estradiol (E2), and Progesterone (P).
  • Normalization of the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, a key process in fertility.
  • positive effect for women with polycystic ovarian syndrome, a hormonal imbalance is present in three percent of adolescents and adults.​
