Acupuncture for Women's Health
In the United States, 10% of women between 15-44 years old are infertile. The leading causes of infertility problems are failure to ovulate, endometriosis, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), uterine fibroids, and cysts. Still, a good percentage experience recurring miscarriages while menopausal symptoms kick in as early as 35 years old in most women.
If you are suffering from a reproductive disorder, you are likely grieving silently. You must have tried several treatments to no avail. We understand it's impossible to endure infertility treatment for years because it's an agonizing process that only increases your desperation. That's why we recommend acupuncture for women's health- it promotes natural healing for menstrual and reproductive disorders.
Can Acupuncture Help with Unexplained Infertility?
If you've been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, that's the most heartbreaking news. It's hard treating a condition whose underlying cause remains unknown.
However, acupuncture can bring an end to your unexplained infertility journey. We've seen women with unexplained infertility seek other treatments for years without success, but everything changed when they tried acupuncture.
How can Women Benefit from Acupuncture?
Essentially, Acupuncture for women's health is believed to have
the following benefits;
1. Improves Menstrual Problems
Chinese medicine has been used for a long time to treat menstrual pain,
irregular menstruation, premenstrual syndrome, amenorrhea, heavy bleeding,
and polycystic ovarian syndrome.
Most women have attempted to seek several solutions to treat these problems to no avail. In such a case, acupuncture is an ideal solution. It's natural, cost-effective, and far better compared to pharmaceutical techniques.
2. Improves Fertility
Cases of fertility are prevalent in women. Acupuncture can boost your chances of conceiving since it focuses on the root cause. These are conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome and hormonal imbalance.
3. Help Reduce Stress
Practitioners state that acupuncture for women's health is effective because it can lower stress levels. Increased production of stress hormones in a woman's body interferes with the production of fertility hormones such as progesterone. By reducing stress, your body releases fertility hormones, therefore increasing your odds of conceiving.
4. Treat Fibroids and Cysts
Most women develop fibroids and cysts at some point in life. According to health experts, over 70% of women develop uterine fibroids. Although most of these growths are asymptomatic, some women develop symptoms eventually.
Some women experience severe pains, heavy bleeding, and pain during sexual intercourse, infertility, and miscarriages. Whether you have symptomatic or asymptomatic fibroids or cysts, acupuncture is all you need, especially if you are trying to get pregnant.
5. Balances Hormones
Hormonal imbalance is the leading cause of infertility. Some hormonal imbalance symptoms include migraines, night sweats, flashes, breast tenderness, hair loss, weight loss, etc. Woman's sex hormones such as estrogen, testosterone (produced in small amounts), and progesterone play a key role in boosting fertility in women.
Acupuncture treats hormonal imbalance by focusing on the root cause. A practitioner uses thin needles to pierce some pressure points in the body that interconnect the channels that stabilize the body and brain communication.

Is Acupuncture Safe for Pregnant Women?
Acupuncture is safe for pregnant women. That's because it does not involve the use of any drugs. It can help ease morning sickness, back pains, depression and improve your sleep quality.
A thin needle is inserted into some pressure points in your body, you'll experience a dull ache, but it does not last long. Acupuncture is a relatively painless process. The needles can stay in place for 5-30 minutes.
