Female Infertility

Female Infertility

There is no such thing as infertility according to Chinese Medicine.  All women are essentially fertile when the energetics are in proper balance.  Problems arise when there is an energy obstruction leading to difficulties conceiving.  At Inner Peace Acupuncture & Wellness, a Fertility Acupuncturist will help to identify the imbalances that are impeding conception and customize a Fertility Enhancement Program to help you correct those imbalances and conceive naturally.

Adrienne Wei, L.Ac. FABORM, is an expert in the treatment of infertility.  She has received advanced training in the areas of reproductive medicine and has studied with world renowned fertility specialists.  She is a Board Certified Fertility Acupuncturist and a Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM).  She is also a member of the Clinical Excellent in Fertility Professionals (CEFP), a small community of practitioners from around the world who are deeply committed to treating infertility with Chinese Medicine, with integrity, compassion, and on-going education.


Fertility Enhancement Program

At Inner Peace Acupuncture & Wellness, fertility enhancement focuses on holistic integration of several modalities.  By recognizing that each person is unique, each treatment plan will be customized according to that person’s unique situation.  A typical treatment plan includes the following:

  • Detailed health history intake
  • Treatment Planning
  • Acupuncture Treatments
  • Customized Herbal Prescription
  • Nutrition and lifestyle counseling designed for each individual’s needs
  • Other modalities such as fertility massage maybe prescribed if needed

Some of the conditions that hinder conception and can be dramatically improved with our program include the following:

  • Unexplained Infertility
  • Amenorrhea
  • Anovulation
  • High FSH
  • Poor Egg Quality
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Endometriosis
  • Low Ovarian Reserve
  • Recurrent Miscarriage

Benefits of Fertility Enhancement with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs

From a Western Medicine point of view, Researchers from Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York reviewed studies and concluded that acupuncture enhances fertility by:

  • regulating the menstrual cycle
  • improving blood flow to the ovaries and uterus
  • improving ovarian function and stimulating the production of follicles and enhance their quality
  • increasing the thickness of uterine wall lining and reducing uterine contractions to improve chances of implantation
  • reducing stress and anxiety

How many treatments will it take to become pregnant?

It generally take 3-6 months to conceive naturally with fertility acupuncture treatments and Chinese Medicine.  However, there are no guarantees because each person is unique and different.  Treatment frequency will depend on many factors: age, previous pregnancy history, general health, stress level and lifestyle.  In addition to acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, lifestyle, diet and exercise play important roles in the conception process.  Consistency of treatments is the key elements to success.
