James has been helping deal with fertility, IVF and habitual miscarriage for many years, here in Marlow and previously in London. Recently acupuncture has become widely talked about as a treatment for infertility, on its own or in conjunction with IVF. James works solely from Marlow allowing treatment to be tailored to the most beneficial days, which is very important during a IVF cycle.
Researchers have shown that acupuncture may increase the success rates for women having IVF by almost 50%. Studies show that acupuncture may reduce stress hormones and increases blood flow to the reproductive organs, all of which could improve fertility and increase the success rate of IVF and IUI. Importantly, acupuncture can help prevent cramping in the womb after IVF treatment, and this not only helps prevent expulsion of the embryo but it is also important in helping to prevent ectopic pregnancy, as well as assisting implantation of the embryo.
Acupuncture may help increase fertility in other ways too. It can counteract the effects of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, commonly known as PCOS. In addition, it may provide more subtle enhancements such as reducing anxiety, promoting general wellbeing and treating insomnia, all of which is helpful for those trying for a baby.
Male infertility and subfertility may also be treated with acupuncture. Alongside my clinical experience some research has shown acupuncture to have a positive effect on sperm parameters.
