What Are the Benefits of Acupuncture?

How Can Acupuncture Help With Fertility?
Acupuncture has been found successful at aiding various medical conditions that can affect fertility. One such condition is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS); according to a Swedish study. In one study, acupuncture needles were attached to a device that allowed low-frequency electrical currents to stimulate ovulation. The study reported sound effects in 38% of participants.
Other conditions that may benefit from acupuncture include fibroids, endometriosis and issues with ovarian reserve. Even sperm quality can be aided with acupuncture.
On top of all that acupuncture can also be really useful in managing the stress of procedures. It can be an excellent solution for reducing some stress surrounding fertility programs and the general wish to get pregnant. The treatments relax and relieve bloating and nausea, creating a general sense of well-being that is beneficial in the fertility process.
When Should I Start Acupuncture for Fertility?
Commonly, women start acupuncture around three months before beginning treatments such as In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) or intrauterine insemination (IUI). That being said, acupuncture is safe and poses very few risks, so it may continue with your doctor’s recommended fertility treatments.
