Acupuncture Chinese medicine and Infertility
Any of the problems below may lead to sub-fertility issues.
- Disorders of ovulation
- Polycystic ovary synndrome
- Tubal blockage
- Inflamation of the pelvic organs
- Implantation issues
Assistance with the conditions that may lead to sub-fertility is based on the the individual presentation of the patient. There is no standardised treatment of biomedical illness. Obviously some conditions may require more long term management or may not be suitable to treatment with acupuncture or herbs.
Patients will be given information on how to monitor their own fertility, and what they can do for themselves to improve their chances of conception. This may include referral to other practitioners such as nutritionists or counsellors.
