Acupuncture can treat most types of fertility disorders by releasing blocked qi (chee) in the body and stimulate function, evoking the body’s natural healing response.

Typically most miscarriages occur within the first 3 months of pregnancy. Consequently, treatment of patients may often last through week twelve to help prevent miscarriage.

There are minimal risks in using acupuncture for fertility treatment. Acupuncture is generally safe regardless of a person’s medical history.

In a study by Stener-Victorin et al from the Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology Fertility Centre, Scandinavia and University of Gothenburg, women are encouraged to receive acupuncture treatments pre and post embryo transfer

Clinical observations from the Berkley Center for Reproductive Wellness suggest that the most effective fertility treatments involve a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, and traditional medicine.
