Thank you for acknowledging infertility as a seriuos medical condidtion and for giving people information on treatments like acupuncture. Infertility is a devastating condition that impacts every aspect of your life. Every unsuccessful attempt at trying to conceive is like dying a little inside and acupuncture can help with depression, anxiety, and other issues other than just the biolgical aspect of reproducing. Please continue to write about infertility to create awareness and education for people.

I appreciate this article because it emphasizes the importance of balance - mind, body, spirit - to not only achieve and maintain good health, but to support the miraculous synchronistic events that must unfold for conception and pregnancy to occur.

I practice Chinese medicine at a clinic in vancouver Canada that focuses on the treatment of fertility. Our website is www.acubalance.ca . I would post full author credits.

Does anyone know of a GOOD accupuncturist in the Edmonton area?(A TCM doctor that also is an herbalist) I'm convinced that it can help, I'm just trying to find a good one with experience with infertility.
Thanks.

Infertility is a hard journey. And we found acupuncture to be very helpful. There is some good research out there about acupuncture and infertility http://infertility-acupuncture.info/ , but some docs still remain sceptical...

I had suffered with secondary infertility and had several failed IVFs but it wasn't until I tried acupuncture that made all the difference in the world. My fsh dropped, lining improved and I just felt so much better. I then had a very successful IVF and had twin boys!
My acupuncturist is James Vitale LAc of the Huntington Wellness Center for Reproductive Health in Huntington, NY.

Acupuncture can be used to treat any type of fertility disorder including spasmed tubes. But still it can be used together with a fertility treatment procedure. In Thailand there are top fertility centers in Chonburi which offers more comprehensive and accurate fertility treatment. And to check these centers in Chonburi is affiliated with PlacidWay medical tourism based in US. If you will consider acupuncture rather that fertility treatment procedures, be informed that there are also risk in having acupuncture. The risk of miscarriage may increase if incorrect acupuncture points are used during pregnancy.

Hi I practice acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in Eugene, Oregon. I have seen first hand how well acupuncture works for helping fertility. Even though I don't specialize in fertility the three women who have come to me for fertility treatments all were able to get pregnant and have healthy babies. In most large communities there will be at least one acupuncturist who specializes in fertility/ reproductive issues.

All it is is a vitamin deficiency, overgrowth of candida making the vaginal mucus too thick, or a mean case of parasites.
