How Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture Can Help Intrauterine Insemination Succeed?

Overall success rates for IUI are 15-20%, with 6% from natural IUIs and up to 30% for IUIs done with fertility drugs. Chinese Medicine, however, can greatly improve these success rates by combining acupuncture, reproductive organ massage and Chinese herbs, all of which have a proven positive effect on conception and implantation.

Acupuncture assists the body in regulating the Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Ovarian axis thus balancing the hormones to produce an increased number of follicles and better quality eggs. It also increases the blood flow to the uterus and increases the thickness of the uterine lining to improve implantation rates. Acupuncture also relaxes the nervous system and decreases stress levels to dramatically improve chances of pregnancy. It diminishes the side effects of ovulation and hormonal support drugs. And, for men, acupuncture improves sperm samples by increasing semen counts, motility, and morphology thus aiding in the natural fertilization process during IUI.
