For many women, fertility declines after the age of 35. Sperm quality in men starts declining after the age of 40.
Poor dietary and lifestyle habits can have a negative impact on both egg and sperm quality, affecting the chances of conceiving and a healthy pregnancy.
Different types of toxic chemicals in the air can have detrimental effects on the body, affecting fertility.
Inherent imbalances in one’s constitution can lead to hormonal imbalances which can make conceiving difficult.
Stress is a cause of blockage that can disrupt Energy and Blood flow to the reproductive organs. Furthermore, excessive stress can also push us towards unhealthy lifestyles and dietary habits which have been proven to impact fertility.
Common gynaecological issues like endometriosis can cause cysts or blockages that might prevent pregnancy while polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can result in the inability to ovulate properly, affecting the chances of conceiving.
Acupuncture is an ancient practice that helps in promoting natural conception and boosting fertility in women. It involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points on the body (acupoints) to help alleviate pain, unblock chi or life energy, and increase blood flow to the organs, thereby restoring balance to the body.
Herbs used in TCM balance out any disharmonies in the body by removing excessive toxins and treating deficiencies. These medications often come in the form of tea or food supplements which are paired with acupuncture to promote natural conception.
Our fertility programme is suitable for couples who are looking for safe and non-invasive treatment modalities and those who are currently undergoing their IVF/IUI treatments. Acupuncture helps to increase blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, working hand in hand with IVF or IUI to boost the success rate.
One treatment cycle under our TCM Fertility Programme typically takes three months and more. Your physician will assess your condition during each visit and tailor the treatment plan to enhance your chances of conception.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has over 2,000 years of history as a natural, alternative treatment to improve the chances of conceiving. It can help to increase fertility by balancing hormones, reducing stress, and improving blood flow to the reproductive organs.
Acupuncture is a holistic approach to boosting fertility without the use of invasive medical procedures or prescription drugs. It involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points on the body to optimise the 3 main organs related to fertility – Kidney, Liver and Spleen.
If you are undergoing IUI or IVF, acupuncture increases the success rate by increasing blood flow to the ovaries during the stimulation phase. It also relaxes and reduces uterine spasms after an embryo transfer, supporting embryo implantation. At the same time, acupuncture also addresses the side effects of fertility drugs and calms anxiety.
Research has demonstrated the effectiveness of acupuncture in conjunction with IVF where the pregnancy rate is higher for those who did regular acupuncture. More and more reproductive specialists are open to having their patients going for acupuncture treatments in conjunction with Western treatments to optimise the success rate of pregnancy.
The recommended time to start acupuncture treatments is at least three months before trying to conceive at a frequency of minimum once a week. Acupuncture can be done before, during and after IUI/IVF treatments.
Before IVF/IUI treatment, acupuncture helps to relax the uterus and primes the body to ensure optimal condition during the treatment.
During IVF/IUI treatment, acupuncture strengthens the Spleen and Kidney to enhance response to the Follicle Stimulating Hormones (FSH). It also provides support to the Liver in improving blood flow to the ovaries and uterus, thereby thickening the endometrial lining while improving the quality of follicles.
After the IUI cycle or IVF embryo transfer, acupuncture not only reduces stress but also improves blood circulation to the uterus to maintain implantation and nourishment of embryos for a healthy and successful pregnancy.
Yes, you can. We have been supporting patients from both private and restructured hospitals with our TCM fertility services since 2009, complementing IVF and IUI with our Acupuncture for Assisted Reproductive Technology (AART) treatments. Our TCM centres are located conveniently near various fertility service centres so you can drop by easily for your AART appointments.
