However couples that have a hard time getting pregnant or have experienced repeated miscarriage would certainly benefit from acupuncture. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal remedies address hormonal imbalance, irregular periods, endometriosis, abnormal sperm counts/motility/mobility, and other impediments to fertility.
Whenever a couple has a hard time getting pregnant, success can be achieved in a matter of months, depending on the cause of infertility. In men, it takes 70 days for new sperm to be generated. In women, effects of acupuncture treatment should occur after the third complete cycle. There can be many reasons contributing to a couple’s infertility, therefore treatments and their duration are individualized and varied.
