Can Fertility Acupuncture Really Boost Your Ability to Conceive?

If you are wanting to conceive a child but have had problems doing so, there are a variety of different options that you might consider when it comes to having a child. Some say that fertility acupuncture is one that might be able to boost a woman’s fertility.

Even though the research suggests that fertility acupuncture may be helpful for some couples who are going through in-vitro fertilization, the verdict is still out on whether or not it can actually improve fertility overall. There have been smaller studies that does show some promise however, more research is probably needed before it can be said for sure that it does help you get pregnant.

Fertility acupuncture and all acupuncture is based on an age old theory that there is vital energy or “chi” that flows through the body that goes along certain pathways in the body. Those who practice acupuncture try to balance this energy and then restore healthy by trying to stimulate certain points along these pathways with very thin needles. Even though this has been a real staple in Chinese medicine for more than 5,000 years, it has only gained popularity in the Western world in just the past few decades.

A team of German researchers back in 2002 did discover that acupuncture did seem to significantly increase the odds of one getting pregnant in a group of 160 women who underwent in-vitro fertilization treatment. The research discovered that 42% of the women who received acupuncture actually did get pregnant compared to the 26% of those who didn't receive treatment. It was speculated that acupuncture did help increase the blood flow to the uterus and then relaxed the muscle tissue allowing the embryos better chances of implanting themselves.

In other research it suggests that acupuncture is very effective in reducing stress and since stress is shown to actually interfere with a woman getting pregnant it does make sense that by reducing the stress you are going to possibly improve the odds of conceiving.

It is thought that acupuncture might also help male infertility as well. A few studies did show that with regular treatments there was significant improvement on their sperm counts and motility or the strength of the ability of the sperm to swim.

There is some newer research that shows that acupuncture can improve the quality and the health of sperm. Researchers analyzed sperm samples from men with infertility from unknown causes before and after they had acupuncture treatments. They discovered that the acupuncture was associated with fewer structural defects in the sperm and there was an increase in the number of normal sperm.

In the end, it really does not matter whether the acupuncture is a placebo effect or not, what is important is that acupuncture is relatively safe and if it does improve fertility it's important and if it is only because a person thinks that it will help it just might be worth trying it out.
