Traditional Chinese medicine has been used for thousands of years to help optimize fertility. We are specialists in reproductive health. Our reproductive health program is focused on an individualized approach which includes acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, and supplement recommendations.
Our plan to optimize fertility success:
It takes approximately 100 days for a resting ovarian follicle to be initiated and grow toward a pre-antral, antral, and then finally a dominant follicle state which is ready for ovulation. Similarly, it takes about 60-90 days for the final stage of sperm maturation. It is during this time that traditional Chinese medicine can make the most impact on fertility.
This program is most beneficial during the three to six months before conception. It is an option for woman who would like to conceive naturally as well as for those who would like to strengthen and balance their body before beginning IVF or other assisted therapies.
Acupuncture is recommended 1-2 times/week to optimize fertility potential.
