Acupuncture Treatments Enhance the Success of Fertility Treatments

Acupuncture is most famously known to help with musculoskeletal conditions.   Have back pain? Go get acupuncture! Carpal tunnel?   It’s great for that too!   In more recent years acupuncture is getting recommended more and more for fertility…. Many fertility specialists are including it as a staple in their fertility toolboxes.  There have been researching studies showing that receiving acupuncture pre- and post-embryo transfer can increase the likelihood of a resulting pregnancy!  When I have patients come in who are considering getting pregnant or have been struggling with fertility,  I always recommend that they start treatment prior to medical fertility treatments, such as embryo transfer, or in-vitro fertilization options.   One of my mentors in school called it “palace prepping.” Are you thinking of getting your body ready to house your baby?  Now is likely the best time to start supportive acupuncture treatments!  Acupuncture can help increase blood flow to the uterus and aid in building a nice plush endometrial lining – both key to a successful pregnancy!  It is known to help regulate hormones and reduce stress, other vital factors in enhancing fertility. Acupuncture can also help manage the side effects that many of the fertility drugs can have. The most amazing thing about acupuncture is that it is a holistic medicine that looks at the whole body and is tailored specifically to you.  We can help you to achieve a successful pregnancy and then guide you through your entire pregnancy.  We will even be there through the postpartum period!   Regardless of where you are on your fertility journey acupuncture, is here to support you!   By:     Malka Widofsky, L.Ac.,
