Infertility is defined as the inability to produce or conceive a child. A 2011 study stated that about two-fifths of women are unable to conceive, which is quite a staggering statistic. The conditions of endometriosis and blocked fallopian tubes are the most reported diagnosed causes of infertility.
Acupuncture can be very good for infertility cases that are non-structural in nature. Problems like anovulation, hormonal imbalance, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), irregular ovulation and menstruation and luteal phase, defect, etc. are all functional problems that acupuncture can effectively treat.
Most people would try Western medical conventional ways to treat infertility first and only as a last option will they consider acupuncture yet acupuncture is by far the cheapest treatment for infertility. It takes several treatment sessions of acupuncture before substantial results are seen. Each session takes around 30 to 45 minutes.
