Acupuncture, frequently combined with herbal medicine, has been used for centuries to treat infertility. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help stimulate ovarian and follicular function. Additionally, it is shown that acupuncture can increase blood flow to the endometrium, helping to facilitate a thick, rich lining.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can be used to treat almost any type of fertility disorder, some of which are listed below:
- Elevated follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)
- Repeated miscarriages
- Unexplained (idiopathic) infertility
- Luteal phase defect
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
