Acupuncture and herbal therapy increase live births in IVF cycles.

Gina Wyneken LAc. has extensive experience and success working with fertility clients and looks forward to answering and questions you may have. 

Traditional Chinese Medicine was first used to treat infertility more than 2,000 years ago. It was initially used to regulate menstrual cycles and prevent miscarriage. Today, to enhance your natural fertility or complement Assisted Reproductive Therapies, TCM can help to:

  • Reduce stress and aid relaxation
  • Regulate hormones
  • Improve ovarian function
  • Improve blood flow
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Increase blood flow to the uterus
  • Increase testicular blood flow
  • Improve sperm count, motility and morphology
  • Decrease pharmaceutical side effects
  • Decrease uterine contractility 
  • Decrease chances of miscarriage

The best results are achieved when TCM treatment is initiated three months prior to trying to conceive. However, treatment can be helpful regardless of your current situation. Whether you are currently seeing a Reproductive Endocrinologist and planning a In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF), or you are seeking to naturally enhance your fertility without modern technology.
