Acupuncture is a form of natural health care that takes a holistic approach to the prevention of illness as well as treatment. It’s based on the idea that energy flows through the body’s meridians (invisible pathways). During treatment, these pathways are stimulated with tiny needle injections to help the flow of energy.
Acupuncturists claim acupuncture can stimulate blood flow to the uterus, assisting menstruation and ovulation, and reducing stress. However, there is convincing evidence now that acupuncture does not improve the chances of having a baby. Acupuncture may help to reduce stress and anxiety.
If acupuncture has a positive impact on you, you can continue your treatment. Please make sure you see a qualified acupuncturist and let your fertility specialist know about the therapy.
