Melbourne Clinic offering Acupuncture for Fertility

Are you looking for ways to increase your chances of falling pregnant? With treatments such as IVF and acupuncture, Melbourne men and women have many options when it comes to boosting fertility. With a sensitive approach to reproductive health issues, we have over ten years of experience working in the field of women’s health, and would love to help you.

How Can Integrative Medicine support my IVF experience?

The goal of integrative medicine, which combines conventional and alternative treatments like fertility acupuncture, is to harness the body’s power to heal itself.

There is now a compelling amount of evidence that demonstrates acupuncture and herbal medicine’s connection to improved fertility and live birth rates in women undergoing IVF treatment. Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine is also recommended as a supplement to acupuncture in the treatment of infertility.

Through a carefully planned program of consultations and acupuncture, IVF in Melbourne can take on a holistic approach. This helps to restore balance to the body and reduce the side effects of the conventional medicine approach.

How does the TCM approach to fertility treatment work?

Dry needling can improve fertility and pregnancy rates by balancing the function of the endocrine system, which is responsible for the release of reproductive hormones in the body. This can be beneficial to the management of fertility issues as regulating hormone function –

  • Decreases the chance of miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy
  • Improves ovary function and egg quality
  • Increases uterine lining thickness improving the chances of a fertilised egg implanting safely into the uterus
  • Regulating hormones to produce a greater number of follicles

Is TCM effective in the reproductive system for men as well?

Absolutely. As with women’s health, by taking a more holistic approach with reproductive issues, TCM is able to improve the function of the male reproductive system and is capable of enhancing a man’s sperm count and motility.

What are the other benefits?

Other benefits of using acupuncture alongside IVF include:

  • Reducing the side effects of IVF drugs
  • Reducing stress
  • Strengthening the immune system

We also provide pre and post-natal treatments to assist you during pregnancy.
