Fertility Related Stress

If you are going through Western medicine treatments such as IUI or IVF, you may also experience increased levels of stress. Acupuncture can help. 

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can help improve fertility, but is also a fantastic tool for those who are stressed out about fertility and trying to conceive (which is very common!).

Symptoms of stress while trying to conceive include: 

  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Insomnia
  • Increased symptoms of PMS or PMDD
  • Anxiety
  • Sadness or Depression
  • Anger or Irritability 

The path to becoming pregnant is not easy for many of our patients, and as we work with them to regulate menstrual cycles, boost fertility, and improve egg and sperm quality, we also use acupuncture and Chinese medicine to help manage the potential stress of this journey.
