There are actually many factors involved in getting pregnant.
Factors such as menstruation and history, general and sexual health, age, sperm quality and even diet can affect your chances of getting pregnant.
Every case is different so for advice and appropriate treatment that is tailored to you, it is always best to speak with a fertility specialist, a trusted healthcare practitioner or your GP.
Acupuncture has been beneficial for many women wanting to get pregnant, whether it be conceiving naturally or as an adjunct therapy with ART/IVF.
Acupuncture treatments for fertility are generally helpful in increasing the blood flow around the uterus and ovaries, regulating hormonal disruption or dysfunction, and/or assisting regular menstruation.
Acupuncture can help getting pregnant, but just as importantly, it can really make a big difference to your enjoyment and experience of your pregnancy and of labour and birthing.
Annedoctal evidence and some preliminary research suggests that women who have acupuncture throughout their first pregnancy tend to experience shorter labour times and less late stage interventions.
Generally it is advised to have acupuncture once a week during the first trimester, every second or fourth week during the second trimester and then weekly again from 37 weeks until week 40.
If you are looking to have some acupuncture to assist you getting pregnant, make sure you see a practitioner who has some experience with fertility and pregnancy.
