Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs for Infertility & IVF Support
Chinese herbs for infertility is probably the most popular and commonly recognized alternative treatment for those trying to get pregnant. The media seems to report on research related to Chinese herbs for fertility every few weeks, and more and more fertility clinics offer or recommend Chinese herbs services along with conventional fertility treatments like IVF and IUI.
Patients come with recognised conditions which can cause infertility:
•For women these can include: Blocked Fallopian tubes; PCOS(polycystic Ovarian Syndrome); Uterine Polyps; Fibroids; Endometriosis; Auto-immune disorders; Hormone imbalances; High FSH levels.
•For man these can include: Low sperm count, motility or morphology.
•Additionally many cases of infertility will have an unknown western cause.
A recent clinical study found that using Chinese herbs with IVF achieved a 68% clinical pregnancy rate in the test group, compared to only 26% in the control group who were not given Chinese herbs. It was also found that when Chinese herbs was used throughout the pregnancy, the risk of miscarriage was significantly reduced. It was also observed that women who had received IVF unsuccessful on a number of occasions, soon became pregnant after Chinese herbs therapy.
In clinical observation ultrasound has shown that after Chinese herbs, women's ovaries change from cloudy to clear and bright. It was also seen that follicles doubled in number, the lining of the uterus became thicker and there was a marked increase in the number of embryos. It has also been observed that while many women have problems from the side effects of the conventional drugs used in IVF treatment, Chinese herbs may help to prevent side effects. Chinese herbs may also have benefits for men with fertility problems, with possibly improving both semen quality and sperm count.
Chinese herbs can help the success rate in becoming pregnant in the following ways:
•It can help to regulates the hormones to produce more follicles. •It can improve ovary function to produce better eggs. •It can increases the flow of blood to the uterus & increases the thickness of the uterus lining. •It can prevent the uterus from contracting. •It can treat and subsequently reduce high FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) levels. •It possibly relaxes the patient & lessens their stress factor. •It can lessen the side effect of drugs used in IVF. •It can create better semen to improve the quality & quantity of embryos. •Used throughout a pregnancy acupuncture or Chinese herbs can minimise the likelihood of miscarriages.
