Fertility acupuncture is one of the major focuses of my acupuncture practice in Dublin. Over the past number of years patients have been treated at my acupuncture clinic  in Blackrock, Co. Dublin for a wide variety of problems relating to pregnancy. These difficulties are discussed in great detail during the initial consultation. Whether someone is trying to become pregnant naturally, or has chosen hormone therapy, IVF or frozen embryo transfer  as the best way to achieve pregnancy; every aspect is examined and a Treatment Plan to incorporate Nutritional Advice and Lifestyle is discussed to suit each individual’s needs and schedule.

Acupuncture increases natural fertility considerably, because it helps the body to restore endocrine harmony. it also treats PMS, PCOS, Amenorrhoea, FSH levels and LUTEAL Phase defects, hormone imbalance and unexplained infertility. ELECTRO ACUPUNCTURE is also used in my Clinic and has demonstrated that the blood flow in the uterine artery is significantly increased after a series of eight acupuncture sessions. Acupuncture increases endometrial receptivity, improves follicular environment and increases the chances of pregnancy.  It helps maintain good health to support the organs and systems vital to the reproductive system. It’s important to bear in mind that it takes 90 days  for an egg to fully mature, so it’s always a good idea to factor this into your planning. Statistics also show, that having acupuncture  during IVF treatments can complement the protocols . It can be an extremely emotional time for a mother to be and acupuncture is an excellent way of calming the  anxiety and stress that a lot of women try to cope with during this time.  Acupuncture treatments given  before and after embryo implantation  helps increases the success rate . Treatments are given on the day of Transfer, both before and after the procedure.

It is recommended that fertility treatments at this acupuncture clinic in Dublin begin as early as possible to maximize the potential for pregnancy. When attending for the first time it is always helpful for patients to have details of any medical tests and scans that have been carried or are currently being processed.

It’s extremely difficult for a person to avoid anxiety or stress when trying to conceive.  Acupuncture is very effective in calming the patient. The treatment itself is gentle. I use very fine needles which patients hardly feel. Simple easy to follow relaxing Qi Gong are given at my Dublin clinic, which can be practised at home.
