Gynaecology and fertility acupuncture
If you are looking for a drug-free way to treat gynaecological and obstetric conditions, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are a great alternative. These treatment options can work to regulate your hormones, normalise the lutenising hormone (LH), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), estradiol (E2), testosterone and also progesterone levels. In addition, they can also assist in improving ovarian function, regulate menstrual cycle and treat infertility in both males and females.
For most people, 1-2 courses of treatments are necessary to achieve the best results.
Acupuncture responds well for many gynaecological conditions including the following:
- IVF support
- Female infertility
- Male infertility (low sperm function, impotence)
- Pregnancy (morning sickness, breeched baby)
- Erectile dysfunction
- Menstruation irregularities
- Dysmenorrhea (painful periods)
- Amenorrhea (absence of periods)
- Heavy periods
- Irregular periods
- Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
- Uterine bleeding
- Uterine fibroids
- Ovarian cysts
- Uterus prolapse
- Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
- Abnormal vaginal discharge or itching
- Hormonal disturbances
- Menopausal syndrome
During the past decade, researchers have worked to improve the success rates of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). This has been achieved through improving embryo and egg quality and the uterine environment, as this assists with embryo implantation success.
Many clinical trials have discovered that IVF acupuncture works well alongside ART, increasing the success rates of women who are undergoing IVF treatment. One study found that women who undergo IVF, and then have pregnancy acupuncture directly before and after embryo transfer, have a better pregnancy rate (43%) compared to those who don’t include therapy in their treatment plan (26%).
Treatment improves the body’s endocrine and circulation system, increasing blood flow and response of a woman’s ovaries and uterus, therefore aiding the chances of getting pregnant.
Acupuncture also treats infertility by helping restore a regular menstrual cycle, reducing stress, improving blood flow and the response of the uterus and ovaries.
This alternative aid with acupuncture is particularly useful for older women or those who have problems conceiving through IVF. For couples struggling to conceive, this treatment option has shown to have significantly positive outcomes and results.

Other interesting figures about women, age and fertility for chances of getting pregnant are:
- Starting at about age 32, a woman’s chances of conceiving decrease gradually but significantly.
- From age 35, a woman’s fertility decline speeds up.
- By age 40, fertility has fallen by half.
- At age 25, only five per cent of women take more than a year to conceive. For women aged 35, this figure rises to 30 per cent.
