What causes infertility?
There are many possible causes of infertility, including both male and female factors. Sometimes, no cause can be found.
In men, infertility may be caused by:
- A low sperm count (fewer than 15 million sperm per milliliter of semen or a total sperm count of less than 39 million per ejaculate)
- Sperm that are abnormal in shape or movement (poor morphology or motility)
- Blockages in the sperm’s delivery system – such as the vas deferens or epididymis
- Hormone imbalances
- Exposure to certain chemicals or medications
- Previous surgery on the reproductive organs
In women, infertility may be caused by:
- Ovulation disorders
- Fallopian tube damage or blockage
- Uterine fibroids
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
- Early menopause
- Hormonal imbalances
- Exposure to certain chemicals or medications
Can Acupuncture help reduce infertility?
Yes, acupuncture can improve fertility by helping to regulate the hormones involved in ovulation and by improving blood flow to the uterus and ovaries. It can also help to reduce stress, which can be a major factor in infertility.
Acupuncture is most effective when combined with other fertility treatments, such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF). A study published in the journal Fertility and Sterility found that women who underwent acupuncture before and after their IVF procedures had a significantly higher success rate than those who did not receive acupuncture. The study found that women who received acupuncture had a 42% chance of conceiving, while those who did not have a 26% chance.

During an acupuncture session for fertility, thin needles will be inserted into specific points on your body. The needles are usually left in place for 20-30 minutes. You may feel a slight tingling or numbness at the needle site. Most people find acupuncture to be relaxing and do not experience any discomfort.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions will vary depending on the individual and the severity of the fertility issue. In general, however, most people will see positive results after 3-6 months.

Acupuncture can help to regulate the hormones involved in ovulation and improve blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, which can improve fertility. You may also notice other positive changes, such as improved sleep, reduced stress levels, and increased energy levels. These changes can all help to promote fertility. If you are undergoing fertility treatments such as IVF, you may want to ask your doctor if you can receive acupuncture before and after the procedure, as this has been shown to increase the success rate.
