Acupuncture is an ancient healing processes that is counted as one of the best and safest alternative of medicines. Acupuncture has been used for centuries to successfully treat a range of diseases, including gynecological and obstetric conditions. This Chinese healing practice assists in regulating the hypothalamic-pituitary ovary axis and normalising the follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). It is also very helpful in normalising estradiol and progesterone levels. Acupuncture also helps to improve ovary function and to boost vaginal epithelial cell maturation.
Many gynecological and obstetric conditions can be helped by acupuncture, including IVF support, female/male infertility, pregnancy, erectile dysfunction, menstruation irregularities, dysmenorrhea, heavy periods and uterine bleeding to name a few.
Acupuncture is also helpful in increasing the success rates of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) through the improvement of embryo quality, while also improving the uterine environment to assist embryo implantation. Research has shown that acupuncture increases pregnancy rates and live births in women undergoing IVF.
How acupuncture assists IVF
Women undergoing the IVF have significantly higher pregnancy rates if they have acupuncture immediately before and after embryo transfer. Acupuncture improves the body’s endocrine and circulation systems, increasing blood flow and the response of women’s ovaries and uterus. In this way, it boosts the chances of pregnancy.
