Acupuncture perfects the uterine lining
It improves the chances of triple-line pattern uterine lining. This kind of lining is much prefered when you’re trying to conceive, as it gives you a higher chance of successful pregnancy.
Improves blood supply
Acupuncture improves blood supply to the uterine lining. Previously we already had studies showing improved blood flow to uterus and ovaries. This study has shown that even uterine vasularisation has improved following 3 months of treatment. Uterine blood flow is essential for conception.
Increases uterine receptivity
Acupuncture improves uterine receptivity. A protein HOXA10 has been measured in uterine lining. HOXA10 has an important function in regulating endometrial development during the menstrual cycle and in establishing conditions necessary for implantation of embryo. Hoxa10 expression is lower in women with Endometriosis, PCOS and hydorsalpinx.
Regulates sugar levels
Optimises ovarian volume and AMH
Acupuncture benefits PCOS patients by normalising ovarian volume and AMH.
How much acupuncture does one need to have to improve fertility? One session can already make a difference, but to see measurable improvements to your fertility, you need to commit to at least 18 sessions or three months of acupuncture.
