Acupuncture for Fertility, IVF and Pregnancy support

Acupuncture for fertility and IVF can really increase your chances of conception.

Acupuncture for fertility

Infertility is defined as the inability to get pregnant despite having regular unprotected sex over a period of time.

There are many causes of infertility such as tubal, ovulatory disorders, endometriosis, low sperm count. The cause for about 30% of couples often remains unexplained.

A diagnosis of infertility or sub-fertility can be devastating and couples are often left feeling hurt and angry.

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon, but most people’s understanding of the process is. Whilst your friends and family offer you care and support they are unable to fully grasp what it is you’re navigating. A journey through infertility is hard, it can be anxiety provoking and stressful.

How can acupuncture help?

Acupuncture can:

  • Regulate fertility hormones
  • Improve uterine lining
  • Improve follicular development
  • Regulate ovulation
  • Regulate menstrual cycles
  • Increase blood flow to the reproductive organs
  • Provide a good blood supply to the ovaries improving egg quality.
  • Counteract the effect of Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Improve sperm quality and quantity
  • Help with embryo implantation
  • Bring about a sense of relaxation


Our body is always looking to return to homeostasis, but there are times when it needs a helping hand and acupuncture perfect for this. It brings about a natural state of balance and promotes good health.

Acupuncture is becoming increasingly popular for those requiring fertility, IVF and pregnancy support. Research evidence (cited in the British Medical Journal) suggests it can increase a couples chances of conception by up to 65%, that’s a huge increase! Regular recipients of acupuncture already know that it is extremely relaxing; it can assist you through what can often be a stressful and mechanical cycle of events.

For those of us living busy lives, the time on the treatment couch is often the only time that we have for ourselves.

After 1 failed attempt at IVF I embarked on my second try.

I decided this time around to try anything that would help me so I got in touch with Gaynor.  I had already started my injections but Gaynor said that acupuncture could still help me at this stage (the earlier you start with treatment the better)

I had 3 sessions with Gaynor, first was prior to egg collection, second after egg collection and last after egg transfer. Then I waited 2 weeks for my result. ……and couldn’t believe my eyes…….my test was positive!!

I will be continuing with my treatment as I really believe that acupuncture has helped me get to this point and can not thank Gaynor enough for helping me and keeping me calm and relaxed and working her magic.

Thank you
