TREATMENTS | PRE-CONCEPTUAL CARE
Increasing numbers of couples are turning to acupuncture to help with pre-conceptual care and support whilst trying to conceive.
Fertility can be compromised due to many gynaecological conditions including the ones listed below.
- Irregular menstrual cycles
- Long/short cycles
- Anovulation (no ovulation)
- Amenorrhoea - scanty/no periods
- Dysmenorrhoea - painful and/or heavy periods
- Metrorrhagia - spotting/bleeding outside the period
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
- Fibroids, cysts or polyps
- Recurrent miscarriage
- Hormonal imbalances
If you suspect that you have any of the above, it is important to consult your GP who can arrange for further tests to be carried out.
Acupuncture helps to bring the body more into balance both physically and emotionally. During an acupuncture consultation, attention is also paid to lifestyle and nutrition with the aim of promoting optimum health to maximize the chances of conception.
We treat couples who are trying to conceive naturally as well as those who are attending fertility clinics for Assisted Conception such as IUI, IVF and ICSI. Acupuncture can be a helpful complement to these other interventions at all stages of the treatment process. Acupuncture is experienced as a valuable support as part of what is often a physically and emotionally demanding journey. Stress is known to contribute to infertility and acupuncture can help with relaxation at this time.
