Acupuncture and Women's Fertility

Acupuncture in relation to women’s reproduction has been researched vastly by clinical trials. They have revealed therapeutic mechanisms of enhancement to uterine receptivity by stimulating uterine blood flow (Stener-Victorin et al., 1996), promoting ovarian blood flow and reduction of ovarian cysts and volume (Lim & Wong, 2010), as well as helping other causes of infertility such as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), without severe adverse effects (Stener-Victorin et al., 2000). Not limited to the physical outcomes, scientific evidences have also suggested acupuncture improves mental health (Paterson & Britten, 2003) by stimulating release of endogenous opioids and inhibiting stress response for women undergoing IVF (Manheimer et al., 2008).

Acupuncture is a safe and reliable solution adjunct to IVF, with pregnancy success achieved by the two arms of psychological and biological benefits.

What Kat says: “Jenny was initially recommended to me by another accupuncturist who was going on holiday. From our first appointment she was professional but also very friendly. She was always happy to answer any questions or concerns I may have had with my treatment. Jenny was also very generous with her time and resources, lending me equipment to use at home and is still checking how I’m going after finishing treatment.

“And I’m happy to say that her treatment plan have worked, given my IVF cycle was a success and we are expecting our baby girl in May.I would happily recommend Jenny to any of my friends.”
