Infertility Acupuncture Treatment in Auckland

Acupuncture is a safe and popular treatment option for both male and female fertility support. Research has shown that acupuncture has positive effects on reproductive hormones, ovarian and uterine blood flow, ovulation rate, stress, anxiety, and healthy sperm count.

Acupuncture for infertility is a safe option that reduces stress and anxiety, regulates hormones related to follicular development and implantation, improves blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, and can improve ovulation rate and endometrial thickness.

In men, acupuncture can improve the count of normal, healthy sperm. Treatment also aims to provide individualised insight into diet and lifestyle factors that may affect fertility and underlying reasons for difficulty conceiving. It can also be a treatment option for threatened miscarriage.

Infertility is defined as the inability to get pregnant despite frequent, unprotected sexual intercourse for over a year.

female fertility timeline

Infertility can occur due to a number of reasons related to male, female, or a combination of both partners in a couple.

Some women facing issues conceiving may have other symptoms such as irregular or absent menstruation or certain medical conditions, such as hormonal imbalances, polycystic ovarian syndrome, or poor ovarian reserve.

Some men may have hormonal imbalance signs such as changes in hair growth or sexual function, medical conditions such as testicular, prostate or sexual problems, or low sperm count or other sperm problems.

Chinese Medicine recognises a number of different reasons why a couple may have trouble conceiving. Treatments aim to provide fertility support, rather than treating “infertility”. Acupuncture treatment may involve the use of moxabustion for low sperm motility or cold in the uterus. Patients’ individual disharmony occurring in their bodies is identified to provide customised treatment.

Types of infertility

Based on the root causes, types of infertility, and the stage of treatment the patient is in, there are three main approaches to treating infertility in Chinese acupuncture:

The first group

Natural pregnancy group – Natural pregnancy after traditional Chinese medicine & acupuncture treatment does not require any Western medicine. Some cases do not need to consider IUI or IVF at all. For example, they are 25-35 years old, have no organic lesions, but are dysfunctional, or have high FSH. We just need to monitor some basics like measuring basal body temperature (BBT) every morning, measuring ovulation during two mid-menstrual periods, and having a sexual life at an appropriate time.

The second group

Prepared for IUI or IVF group – A period of treatment before starting artificial insemination or IVF.  The IUI/IVF is done after conditioning by Chinese medicine acupuncture treatment. Some specialised treatments continue to advocate that patients who have failed IVF multiple times need to repeat the procedure. However, the result may not always be successful, and it can lead to excessive expenditure of money and time, also causing damage to your health. If you undergo IVF after 1-3 months of Chinese medicine treatment, the situation is very different. Then, the success rate will increase by more than 50%. Interestingly, in some cases, women get pregnant during the early preparation of IVF, where the patient saves the IVF surgical steps, and naturally becomes pregnant.

The third group

Cooperate with IUI or IVF group – This involves acupuncturists working alongside IVF procedures by providing acupuncture throughout the entire process of an IVF surgery. Different acupuncture and moxibustion treatments are given at various stages to significantly increase the success rate. This approach typically does not involve the use of Chinese medicine.

What Our Patients Say About Us

Acupuncture is an ancient form of medicine that takes a holistic approach. Acupuncturists will take a detailed health history, examine the tongue, feel the pulse, and possibly perform additional physical examinations. To begin the acupuncture treatment, fine, pre-sterilised needles are gently placed on acupoints on various areas of the body. The needles are usually retained for between five and 30 minutes, and the entire session will take up to an hour. Acupuncturists may also use other treatment techniques such as cupping, moxibustion, or auriculotherapy, depending on the patient’s condition.

When choosing an acupuncturist, it’s important to verify that they are registered with one of the two regulatory bodies for acupuncturists in New Zealand. At Ponsonby Wellness, highly trained acupuncturists are recognised ACC treatment providers and hold a minimum four-year Bachelor of Health Science that consists of a combination of both traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Biomedical training.Call us or visit our clinic personally to learn more.
