Its no secret that as we age our fertility decreases along with our ovarian health. But did you know that Acupuncture has been shown to help increase the chances of conceiving?!
Its true! Acupuncture has been proven to help multiple disorders related to infertility and ovarian health in women. Here is a brief overview of several studies from all over the globe which concluded that acupuncture was a game changer in the fertility department:
- In a study done by the University of Heidelberg, Germany, researchers found that acupuncture is an effective alternative therapy for female infertility due to hormone disorders.
- According to the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, acupuncture can prove as a valuable alternative to western medicine when it comes to treating women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Women with PCOS struggle with conceiving, which can be very frustrating and upsetting. Western treatments involving surgery and prescription medication can be costly and have severe side-effects. Acupuncture has been found to be a less expensive, safer alternative for the treatment of PCOS.
- One study done of women with secondary ovarian failure, where women struggle to conceive, found that the group receiving acupuncture treatment had long-lasting results without side effects compared to those receiving a fertility drug called clomiphene.
