You may wonder why? That is because acupuncture has shown very effective in relieving stress, improving egg and sperm quality, regulating hormone balance, and reducing the risk of miscarriage.

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine can help alleviate the most common conditions associated with infertility.
Elevated FSH level, hormone imbalance, PMS, irregular menstruation, difficult implantation, recurring miscarriage, PCOS, endometriosis, immunological issues, aging eggs (if you are over 35 years old) and thyroid problems, have been associated with infertility and pregnancy loss. Western medicine focuses completely on individual parts of the body, -a disease or an organ- and only treat the symptoms but not the underlying causes that might make a couple infertile. The same is true when it comes to modern reproductive medicine’s isolated treatment of infertility. Dr. Yin looks at the whole patient, seeking imbalances in the system rather than focusing on a particular disease. Our acupuncture treatments and herbal Chinese medicines in Frisco, TX, restore the body’s normal function, allowing the patient to conceive.
Acupuncture and Egg Quality Improvement
Before you begin an IVF procedure you should use any means possible to improve the quality of your eggs, rather than the number of eggs produced per cycle. Acupuncture maximizes the blood flow to the ovaries to ensure a constant and steady supply of hormones and nutrients they need for the normal growth. Healthy blood flow can increase follicle and egg health and quantity,. This is especially true for women who have a poor prognosis either because of age or previously failed cycles.
Acupuncture and Sperm Quality Improvement.
It still takes a man and a woman to make a baby. Most men are better at hiding their feelings if they can’t father a child. Dr. Yin knows how important fertility can be to a man’s self worth. Almost all aspects of male infertility can benefit from our acupuncture treatments in Frisco, TX. Sperm count, sperm motility and sperm morphology and quality can be increased and even hormonal factors can be resolved by restoring balance to the entire body.
Acupuncture and Hormone Balance
Hormone balance plays a significant role during the conception process. Without a proper balance of various hormones (FSH, LH, progesterone, prolactin, etc.), women could experience no ovulation or poor egg quality, irregular menstrual cycle, and even miscarriage, possibly leading to infertility. Regular acupuncture treatment can be very effective in regulating hormonal imbalances. It is considered to influence the hormonal regulation centers in the brain and autonomic nervous system (i.e., the hipothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis) and as a result, improvement in hormonal status can occur.
Acupuncture and Stress Relief
Rising levels of stress can lower a woman’s fertility by disrupting her hormone balance and in some cases prevent ovulation completely. Such imbalance can lead to irregular or missed menstrual cycles and may cause the fallopian tubes and uterus to contract, thereby inhibiting the movement of the egg into the uterus. When diagnosed with infertility, many patients feel helpless and no longer in control of their lives. When patients seek insemination or assisted reproductive treatment, it can be stressful and some of the hormonal medications can cause mood swings, headaches and fatigue which further increase their stress levels.
Acupuncture is a holistic method that integrates the body and mind and balances emotional distresss, increases relaxation and helps women with hormonal dysfunction or unexplained infertility. However, 80% of women will restore fertility after lowering stress levels. Acupuncture works to alleviate stress by stimulating the central nervous system and increasing the production of endorphins and encephalins, which are naturally occuring chemicals in the body that improve a person’s mood and overall feeling of well-being. Acupuncture improves circulation of blood throughout the body, which oxygenates the tissues and cycles out cortisol and other waste chemicals. The calming nature of acupuncture also decreases heart rate, lowers blood pressure and relaxes the muscles.
