Fertility Clinic

As more and more couples try to conceive later in life, fertility difficulties are more prevalent. Assisted reproductive techniques (ART) have become very acceptable and popular. For some couples ART is the only hope to conceive.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are considered one of the most effective natural methods to help couples seed to enhance their fertility. Acupuncture and TCM can work on their own or with conjunction with ART, such as In vitro fertilisation (IVF). Researches shown acupuncture and TCM can greatly improve the outcome of ART procedures.

So how can acupuncture and TCM help fertility? Let's talk about this!


acupuncture helps infertility patients

The definition of infertility is usually the failure to conceive after 1 year of unprotected intercourse (European Society 1996). Infertility can be classified as either: Primary, (women who have never conceived), or Secondary, (women who have previously conceived). There are about 10–20% of infertility cases that are unexplained (Isaksson 2004). The rest are the result of ovulatory failure (27%), tubal damage (14%), endometriosis (5%), low sperm count or quality (19%), or other causes (5%) (Effective Health Care 1992).


Male Infertility

Male infertility refers to the inability of a male to achieve a pregnancy in a fertile female, and is commonly due to deficiencies in the semen, and the semen quality is used as a surrogate measure of male fecundity.
