Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine for Fertility

Fertility and TCM

baby Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been used in the treatment of gynaecological problems for approximately 3000 years. The first recorded Chinese herbal formulas for the treatment of infertility dates back 2250 years. In 200 BC China had already formed medical specialities, with gynaecologists refered to as Ru yi (breast doctor) or Nu yi (women's doctor). Extensive medical research has been conducted around the world on Chinese medicine. These studies confirm the benefits of Chinese medicine in helping to treat issues related to fertility.
Chinese medicine improves the function of ovaries to produce better quality eggs, assists in the regulation of the menstrual cycle, increases blood flow to the uterus and thickens the lining, prevents the uterus from contracting, decreases the risk of miscarriage, and relaxes patients by reducing stress.

What Conditions can be Treated with Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine?

The causes of infertility are numerous. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs help to recover from the conditions that can directly cause infertlity, such as:

  • No period
  • Irregular period
  • No ovulation / poor quality of eggs
  • Endometriosis (it may cause peritubal adhesion)
  • PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome)
  • Frequent miscarriage
  • Hyper/hypothyroidism

Acupuncture & Chinese herbs are also good for the conditions that are indirectly related to infertility, such as:

  • Stress
  • Poor blood circulation


They are safe and can be combined with medical treatments (e.g. surgery, medications, etc.) and other natural health (e.g. naturopathy, homeopathy, massage, etc.).

How long does it take to get pregnant with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine?

I am often asked the question. There's not only one answer.
Everyone has different conditions such as ages, constitutions, lifestyle habits, and medical histories.
Some clients become pregnant in just one cycle, some clients need more than half year, and some clients need treatments with IVF.
However, generally speaking I see a client reguraly at least three cycles to balance your body for healthy pregnancy.
