Acupuncture can play in integral role in women's health. By addressing the root of the issue, acupuncture can help with infertility, amennorhea, PCOS, hormonal imbalances, high FSH/ low AMH, painful and irregular menses, PMS, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, and more.
Including acupuncture with ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology) like IUI, IVF, embryo freezing, etc, can increase likelihood of a healthy, full-term pregnancy.
We recommend that our patients who are trying to get pregnant track their basal body temperature (BBT). You can download a chart here or download apps like Fertility Friend or Kindara. For more information on BBT charting, visit babycenter.
During pregnancy, women often experience unwelcome issues such as heartburn, back pain/ sciatica, nausea/ morning sickness, and fatigue. Acupuncture is a safe and effective way to treat all these symptoms.
