When you are dealing with female fertility & male fertility issues, one of the options you might consider alongside your regular medical efforts, is to try acupuncture. It is an ancient method of healing and if you are having problems getting pregnant, it is safe and could bring some promising results. Here is a look at what it is and how it might help.

About acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese healing system that uses fine and thin needles inserted at specific points of the body to achieve that healing and wellness. The needles stimulate the body into its healing process as it encourages the release of particular neurochemicals. For example, if you use the correct methods and insert in the correct place, a specialist can boost the levels of endorphin which helps reduce inflammation and eases pain. It can also be used to help with fertility treatment.

How acupuncture can help women trying to have a baby

So how does it help? It helps level the hormones in the body of a woman. In ovulation, it is important to have the right levels and acupuncture can help you achieve that. It can also be used to help improve your circulation and blood flow. Around the endometrium, this means a thicker and better lining can occur and then getting pregnant is more possible. Some small studies show a promising result that it could improve fertility in some women by as much as 60%. As fertility treatment, it helps adjust irregularities in ovulation by raising the function of the ovaries making conception more likely.

How acupuncture can help men trying to have a baby

In men, the main reason for fertility issues tends to be a low sperm count. It is not always the woman that might need help with fertility issues, sometimes their partner needs help. As well as seeing a doctor about the issue and looking at what you can do to change things, another alternative option that you can do alongside that, is see an acupuncturist. When a man has a low sperm count it is not impossible for their partner to become pregnant, but it lowers the chances. With acupuncture, that sperm production in some men gets a boost and so pregnancy is more of a possibility.

Another reason for infertility in men as well as a low sperm count, is having low-quality sperm. Acupuncture in this case can also help improve the quality of the man’s sperm when the needles are inserted at the right points. It is important to find an experienced and qualified acupuncturist so you get a genuine treatment that could help.


Using acupuncture for female fertility & male fertility issues can really help some couples to conceive the child they have been dreaming of. It is not something that will get in the way of any other efforts to improve your chances of having a baby, and could just be the nudge needed to get pregnant sooner rather than later!
