Bringing a child into the world is an experience that many couples want to enjoy, however problems with fertility can affect people’s hopes of becoming parents. Infertility doesn’t affect just males or just females exclusively; it can affect both in different ways. Causes of infertility in males include low sperm count, a blocked vas deferens, large numbers of abnormally shaped sperm, and genetic diseases. For females who have low fertility or are infertile, contributing factors usually include age, problems with the fallopian tubes, ovulation disorders, endometriosis, and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). While research is still ongoing about how acupuncture can assist with fertility, it’s a treatment that may help to support the body while trying to fall pregnant, however results can vary in each individual, and is not guaranteed.
Melbourne Acupuncture and Wellness Centre offers acupuncture, in North Melbourne, as an adjunct treatment that may assist with fertility treatment, and you should consult your treating practitioner/s about how acupuncture may be able to help you.
