Can Acupuncture Help You Get Pregnant?

Having a baby and creating a family can be one of the most rewarding experiences a person can have. But when things aren’t working quite right the struggle to conceive can become stressful and overwhelming for everyone involved. Infertility is generally defined as being unable to conceive after having unprotected sex for a year. Women who are unable to remain pregnant may also have infertility.

You may have heard that acupuncture can improve your chances of success on its own and when combined with fertility treatments such as IVF. When done correctly, acupuncture is safe for use during infertility treatments and can help to relieve stress by having a relaxing and calming effect. Fertility acupuncture can help to treat many common fertility disorders including:

  • Elevated follicle-stimulating hormone
  • Repeated pregnancy loss
  • Unexplained (idiopathic) infertility
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
  • Amenorrhea
  • Endometriosis
  • Ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Luteal phase defect (LPD)
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
  • Premature ovarian failure (POF)
  • Stress
  • Poor egg quality
  • Advanced maternal age

“Aiden and his practice have truly changed my life. I know that it can sound cliché but it is so true. I initially went to see Aiden in October for chronic pain in my hip and low back, but he has fixed so much more. I have suffered from food sensitivities, allergies, constant stomach pain and bloating my entire life. This is something that I was just used to and figured it would always be a part of my life. Aiden has fixed my gut health and I no longer deal with bloating and pain daily. We worked on so many deep emotional issues that I didn’t even realize were affecting my daily life. He has helped me manage my stress and improved my quality of sleep. I am now currently pregnant and Aiden will be helping me throughout my entire pregnancy. I have sent my husband, mom, dad, clients, and many friends to see him now and he has made such a positive difference in each of their lives. I am so grateful to have him in my life and can’t recommend him enough!” -Taylor Tanner
