Acupuncture for Fertility and Pregnancy

Are you having problems with infertility or with getting pregnant? Acupuncture can help.

Whether you’re pregnant now, just thinking about trying, or have been struggling for years, traditional Chinese medicine can support you along the journey. Acupuncture can be used to treat many types of fertility disorders in both men and women. In addition, with the many physical and hormonal changes that occur throughout pregnancy, it can be a time of discomfort during which acupuncture can help.


Fertility: Acupuncture can be used to help regulate ovulation to increase predictability. It can also regulate hormones, increasing the success rate of fertility treatments. For older couples, acupuncture can address erectile dysfunction, low sperm count, impotence, painful intercourse, and low libido. Acupuncture can also help improve the quality of both the egg and the sperm.

Pregnancy: During the first trimester of pregnancy acupuncture can be used to strengthen the lining of the uterus to hold the baby as it grows. Acupuncture is a safe treatment for morning sickness and can help reduce or eliminate nausea and vomiting. Acupuncture can also help with heartburn, mood swings, headaches, fatigue, memory issues, stress, preeclampsia, frequent urination, gestational diabetes, edema, and low back and/or pelvic pain.


Acupuncture, the most well-known traditional Chinese medical procedure, is the practice of inserting thin needles into the body at specific points to relieve pain or treat a disease. Acupuncture triggers spontaneous healing reactions in the body, and scientific studies have proven its efficacy for treating inflammation, pain, depression and a host of other disorders.
