Fertility Information

When to have Acupuncture

Before ovulation is good and after, to be honest throughout your cycle. Especially before any fertility treatments, so Acupuncture can get your menstrual cycle to its optimum to really provide a solid support throughout any fertility treatments.


Most important must times in your menstrual cycle for Acupuncture are:


1.During the follicular phase-day 5,6,7 or 8.

2.Day before, day of or day after ovulation (indicated by LH surge) 

3.During implantation time (6-10 days after ovulation) 

Acupuncture produces a higher rate of pregnancies than fertility medications with significantly less adverse effects. In a controlled clinical trial, researchers document that acupuncture outperforms bromocriptine and bromocriptine plus clomiphene for the treatment of infertility for women with hyperprolactinemia (HPL). Acupuncture produced a 43.3% pregnancy rate whereas fertility medications produced 20% pregnancy rate. For full article, click here.
