Acupuncture has been utilized for thousands of years to increase fertility and promote pregnancy. Acupuncture can actually be effective in both sexes in improving fertility. Acupuncture can help the female in treating underlying causes of infertility, such as endometriosis, fibroids, PCOS, or irregular menstrual cycle. The reproductive organs benefit from acupuncture by receiving increased nutrients and blood flow, as well as balanced hormonal levels and improved quality of the uterine lining. It also aids in relaxation and stress reduction which also plays a role in one's ability to conceive. In men, acupuncture improves fertility by increasing one's motility level, which is the percentage of one's sperm that 'swim' well. It is crucial to consider both male and female fertility when trying to conceive. Acupuncture can also help those utilizing IVF.
