Acupuncture for Fertility in Portland


Acupuncture for fertility can address hormone imbalances, diminished ovarian reserve, unexplained infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss (source). Regular acupuncture treatments can also treat common health issues that prevent women from getting pregnant, such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis, fibroids, and menstrual disorders. Acupuncture can help addressing anxiety, stress, and depression, which are common among fertility patients. Acupuncture is a holistic system of medicine that can support you physically as well and mentally while you’re trying to build your family.

Acupuncture for fertility isn’t just for women, but also can help men (source). It can be used to treat low sperm count, poor morphology, and poor motility. If you’ve been trying for a few months without success, it is highly recommended that you and your partner book Portland acupuncture sessions for fertility to treat the very issues that keep you from conceiving.
