Dr. Anne Hermann’s evidence–based approach to medicine includes the use of acupuncture treatments for fertility in Tampa and St. Petersburg. Approximately 1 in 6 couples struggle to get pregnant, and acupuncture has been proven to not only increase the chances of getting pregnant, but to increase the likelihood of a safe and healthy pregnancy as well. Medical studies prove that acupuncture can increase both a male and female’s reproductive health.
How does acupuncture address infertility?
Medical studies prove that acupuncture can counteract infertility by decreasing the effects of stress and balancing one’s hormones. Acupuncture helps to increase blood flow to the uterus and ovaries as well. Additionally acupuncture for fertility will:
• Minimize the effects of drugs used in IVF
• Strengthen the immune system
• Reduce the chance of miscarriage
• Improve the quantity and mobility of sperm
Medical studies prove acupuncture works for fertility
In a medical study of IVF transfer patients, there was a 43% pregnancy rate in the group receiving acupuncture 25 minutes before and after embryo transfer. This study was done in Germany in 2002 by Wolfgang E. Paulus.
In a clinical study by Paul C. Magarelli, M.D., Ph. D, the study used two group of women seeking to get pregnant. One group received real acupuncture treatments while the other group thought they were receiving acupuncture treatments, but in fact were not. The group that received the actual medical acupuncture treatments had a higher pregnancy rate of 28.4%.
The listed research was published in Fertility and Sterility, the journal of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
