At Dr Christine Fertility Clinic, we encourage women to conceive naturally by going to regular acupuncture treatments combine with Chinese herbal medicine.
We believe that women should monitor their body temperature in order to know when they start to ovulate. This is the best time for a couple to make love because this time is known to be the most fertile for women to conceive. Now that you know that waiting for ovulation period is important, the next step is to identify when you will be ovulating.
How do you know when you are ovulating?
Here are some of the signs:
- Mucus changes
- Vaginal Secretions of cervical fluid (ie. Increase stretchy fluid)
- Change in body temperature
- Change in sex hormones
The duration of ovulation is usually between 6 to 12 hours. If you are still unsure, it is also good to check with ovulation pee sticks.
Acupuncture Role to assist in natural fertility
1. Maintaining regular menstrual cycle.
Acupuncture can increase the flow in the pelvic area and therefore eliminating any blockages and treating hormone imbalances. The hormone imbalances can result in stress, endometriosis as well as irregular menstrual cycle. Eliminating this issue can improve the chance of being fertile.
2. Improving well-being and overall health for men and women.
Since the blood flow has increased because it has been stimulated through acupuncture, automatically the body can get better nourishments. The blood carries nutrients such as, sugar, oxygen and hormones. When the blood circulation is enhanced, the vital functions also become better and hence, improve the couples’ ability to conceive.
3. Strengthening the uterus lining by stimulating the blood flow to the uterus, enhance the possibility of conception.
This is also important for women who are in first trimester, as it will reduce the chance of miscarriages. Therefore, acupuncture is necessary in the first trimester not only during the process of conception.
4. Acupuncture combine with Chinese Herbal medicine (TCM), can give nourishment for both the fetus and women who try to conceive
Chinese herbal medicine (TCM) can stimulate blood flow in pelvic region and also improve vital organ function. By combining acupuncture and TCM, couples have higher chance to conceive.
5. Acupuncture can treat Endometriosis symptoms and increase chance of being conceive
Endometriosis is condition where the blood does not flow to the areas it should be. Professional acupuncturist is able to points to areas of the body where blood flow in pelvic region can be improved. Therefore, nourishes them with correct amount of hormones, oxygen and nutrients.
6. Balance the hormone and release endorphine levels, reducing stress and increase level of happiness.
The levels of testosterone in women need to be reduced if a woman is trying to conceive. Acupuncture can assist by regulating hormone imbalances and reduce testosterone level.
Not only the level of testosterone reduce, the endorphine levels also released; which results in less stress and increasing the ability to conceive.
7. Increase the quality and quantity of sperms
Over the past decade, the quality of sperms in men is reduced due to stress, imbalance hormones and other factor. Therefore, it is necessary for men to do acupuncture as it will impact the couple to conceive. According to research, men who received regular acupuncture (2 times a week) has better quality of sperms and increase the quantity as well. Hence, there is higher chance of conception for the couples who would like to have baby.
According to Dr Kenneth Snell from IVF Acupuncture Clinic in NSW, said that out of the women who received acupuncture treatment regularly 70.8% of them conceived naturally. Not only that, he also said that 72% of them were aged between 30 to 40 years old.
