Natural fertility support for men and women

Fertility is essentially good health – you want to pass that on. We help support many couples trying to conceive.

Fertility issues can be caused by hormones being out of balance, inadequate nutrition, stress, exhaustion and a body simply out of balance.

Many women look for fertility help on their own, and assume they must be the problem if their partner’s sperm checked out ok. Getting the sperm go-ahead doesn’t mean male fertility is not being affected by stress, working night shift and losing sleep, exhaustion or lower back pain.

There is not enough emphasis on the male side of the fertility equation (yes you guys!). It’s important both mum and dad put their best genes forward!

Acupuncture support for male fertility

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can help improving male fertility by supporting health. Conditions men are typically concerned about are:
– low sperm count
– poor morphology (structure)
– decreased motility (ability to swim)
– increased levels of DNA fragmentation
– varicocele (scrotal varicose veins)

Sperm quality is in decline across the male population. Even if your sperm has been given the all clear, there is usually room for improvement. Improving sperm quality and quantity can increase your chance of conceiving, reduce miscarriage rates and improve the health of baby.

Luckily for men, improving their fertility is generally not as complicated as women. Some lifestyle changes and some additional support such as supplements, herbal formulas and acupuncture for 2-3 months before conception can make the world of difference. 

Why 2-3 months? Well, it takes about 72 days for the sperm to develop and be stored in the testes. So your lifestyle during that time will impact that ejaculate sample (bucks party benders included!). Your best bet is to be on good behaviour to increase your chances of conceiving a healthy baby. After all, women are on good behaviour pre-conception, during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.

Acupuncture support for female fertility

For women, Chinese medicine can improve fertility through regulating your menstrual cycle and addressing any underlying imbalances impacting your health. Optimal health equals better fertility so a holistic approach is recommended.

Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can support issues which may impact fertility such as:
– irregular cycles
– anovulation (absence of ovulation)
– fibroids
– endometriosis
– recurring miscarriage
– blocked fallopian tubes
– low ovarian reserve
– unexplained infertility

When trying to conceive, ideally:
– menstrual cycle should be regular (28-32 days)
– healthy menstrual bleed (4-5 days long)
– no pain or clotting
– mid-cycle – good quality egg-white like ovulation mucous
– no pre-menstrual irritability, pain, headaches or excessive bloating

Acupuncture support treatment aims to:
– improve egg maturation and quality
– improve the development and quality of the endometrial lining
– improve circulation around the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries
– enhance the quality and volume of cervical mucous at ovulation

Acupuncture support for PCOS

Acupuncture can help get your hormones in balance and relieve the symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)

Acupuncture support for menopause

Menopause should be a smooth transition, not a crazy hormonal roller coaster ride! Acupuncture can help manage any hormonal imbalances and help ease your journey through this phase.
