Fertility and Conception

Fertility and Conception

How Acupuncture can help

Research has shown that acupuncture may help to relieve the symptoms of many conditions which may compromise fertility including dysmenorrhea (painful periods) amenorrhoea (no periods), cycle irregularities and reproduction system problems- hormonal imbalance anovulation(no ovulation), endometriosis, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) ,PMS, urinary and bladder pain and menopause.


Traditional five element acupuncture can help assist with fertility and conception. We all have a life force or energy known as Qi, which flows in pathways called meridians within our Body, Mind and Spirit. Most meridians are named after the major internal organs, the conception vessel runs up the middle body. Each organ plays a role in maintaining a smooth flow of Qi, most people have a constitutional weakness that affects their flow of Qi.


The meridians associated with reproduction are the kidneys, spleen and liver. The kidneys store the Jing or essence. Good Jing means strong sperm, strong eggs, and strong healthy children. Many women come to treatment with kidney deficiency, their kidney energy depleted by life and work stress, previous pregnancy’s, miscarriages or IVF. It does not mean that there is something wrong with the kidneys – it  is the essence of the kidneys which needs to be improved to start new life.

Blood flow

Acupuncture treatment can be used to balance and enhance fertility, to encourage heathy Qi and  blood flow – replenishing the energy by building the blood, boost ovulation and encourage implantation.

Body, Mind and Spirit

Traditional five element acupuncture may improve your general health, alleviate underlying conditions  preventing conception or enhance efficiency of fertility  treatments. Be prepared to change aspects of your life to support treatment such as diet, exercise, stress management,  traditional five element acupuncture treats the whole person in Body, Mind and Spirit.

Forward planning

If you are considering acupuncture treatment to help with fertility it is helpful to come when planning pregnancy about 3 months before for both man and woman. Acupuncture can help your chances of becoming pregnant. Using acupuncture alongside assisted conception can be very beneficial at all stages for fertilization, implantation anxiety and hormonal challenges.
