Fertility Q&A

What causes fertility issues?

Fertility issues can originate in the male or female partner or both. In about one-third of infertility causes, there’s no identifiable reason for a couple’s inability to achieve a viable pregnancy.

Female-related fertility problems can develop due to reproductive health issues like:

  • Tumors
  • Fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Ovulation dysfunction
  • Fallopian tube blockages
  • Insufficient uterine lining
  • High FSH/low AMH

Women can also experience infertility as they get older, especially if they’re age 35 or older, are obese, have a history of smoking, or have complications from a sexually transmitted disease (STD).

Hackensack Family Acupuncture & Wellness offers holistic therapies like acupuncture to restore a woman’s fertility. The wellness specialists can also recommend Chinese herbs and other supplements to support your reproductive and sexual health.

How does acupuncture support fertility?

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy that involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points (meridians) throughout your body.

The needles trigger the release of endorphins, painkillers that your body produces naturally. Acupuncture techniques also promote deep relaxation in your body to enhance your fertility. Treatment is also beneficial for women trying to conceive a pregnancy through intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in-vitro fertilization (IVF).

The Hackensack Family Acupuncture & Wellness providers can insert the needles at different depths to maximize the results of your treatment. They may also manipulate the needles manually or with low currents of electricity to stimulate your body’s natural healing processes.

In addition to acupuncture, the providers can also customize a care plan using other holistic strategies to increase the likelihood of successful conception.

What other holistic treatments are available to improve fertility?

Hackensack Family Acupuncture & Wellness specializes in Chinese herbs and other supplements that support your total health and wellness.

The providers can recommend specific herbs and supplements to support your reproductive health and enhance your natural fertility. They recommend supplements based on your family planning goals and your overall health.

The specialists can also recommend other strategies you can use to preserve your fertility, including:

  • Lifestyle changes
  • Diet improvements
  • Daily exercises
  • Stress reduction techniques

If you have underlying health issues that require surgery or other medical interventions, the providers can work with local specialists to develop an integrative care plan to improve your fertility and overall wellness.
