"I had been trying to get pregnant for 2 years, and within about 3 months under Jennifer's care I conceived, and I am now in my third trimester!"
When Trying to Conceive Naturally
There are many ways acupuncture can help you conceive naturally. From regulating your menstrual cycles, lengthening your luteal phase, thickening your uterine lining or helping you ovulate, acupuncture is highly effective in helping you conceive.
Treatment plans typically include acupuncture, herbs, nutritional and lifestyle recommendations. The goal is not only to help you conceive but to create an ideal environment to carry and deliver a healthy baby.
My approach can help with any of the following conditions related to fertility:
Luteal Phase Defect
Male Factor Infertility
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
Stress Related Hormone Imbalance
When Using IVF or IUIs
Recent studies have concluded that using acupuncture while undergoing IVF treatments can significantly increase the chances of conceiving. Acupuncture treatments before and after transfers are proven to be beneficial, however, to maximize the benefits of Chinese medicine, weekly treatments are recommended for at least two months prior to the start of IVF.
Acupuncture has been shown to decrease uterine contractions and increase blood flow to the uterus which can help create a more favorable environment for implantation. My patients also report a decrease in stress and a reduction of adverse effects from fertility medications.
