We offer Medical Acupuncture at CREF for a variety of medical conditions including infertility.
The role of acupuncture in the management of a variety of conditions, including acute and chronic pain problems is well documented. The rationale for the use of acupuncture in infertility focuses on improved blood supply within the pelvis and to the uterus with consequent improved endometrial thickness and receptivity, and enhanced implantation rates. Women also experience a reduction in their anxiety and stress levels which are additional benefits, since decreased stress levels have been shown to improve pregnancy rates. Acupuncture has also been used successfully in the treatment of male sub-fertility with improvements in both sperm counts and quality.
Acupuncture is a safe treatment in the hands of an experienced practitioner.
