Acupuncture and infertility?

Depending on the specific cause of your infertility, Dr. Chamoun may recommend acupuncture therapy. Acupuncture consists of a long, thin, sterile needles used to stimulate certain points of the body.

Acupuncture has been associated with improved ovarian and follicular function and increased blood flow to the endometrial lining. With the help of a licensed acupuncturist, the goal is to create a paced treatment plan timed to your ovulation, intrauterine insemination, or In Vitro Fertilization procedures. Acupuncture treatment has also been suggested during early pregnancy to prevent miscarriage.
