Acupuncture for Menstrual Health & Fertility
Approximately 1 in 6 couples in Canada experience infertility at some point i their reproductive lives & the number is increasing. Acupuncture is a relatively safe and non-invasive way to improve your fertility outcomes. An irregular menstrual cycle is a common reason why a woman may run into trouble conceiving because she is not ovulating consistently. Your menstrual cycle is considered to be irregular if it is shorter than 21 days or longer than 35 days.
Acupuncture is a great tool our Naturopathic Doctors use to regulate a menstrual cycle whether you are trying to conceive or not, & support fertility.
Acupuncture is also an excellent option for couples looking to increase success while undergoing treatments at a fertility clinic such as IVF or IUI. Studies show that acupuncture can DOUBLE your chances of becoming pregnant when used concurrently with IVF by increasing blood flow to the uterus and promoting implantation. This is a treatment form that doesn’t interact with any pharmaceutical hormones your fertility clinic may have you on making it an ideal form of adjunctive care.
