How does acupuncture for fertility work?

The mechanism by which acupuncture works for fertility is explained by influencing fertility and reproductive health:

1. Regulation of Hormones: Acupuncture affects the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, which plays a crucial role in regulating reproductive hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). By stimulating specific acupuncture points, acupuncture may help regulate hormone levels, promoting healthy ovulation and menstrual cycles in women and supporting sperm production in men.

2. Improvement of Blood Flow: Acupuncture can increase blood flow to the reproductive organs, including the ovaries, uterus, and testes. Improved blood circulation may enhance ovarian function, promote a thickened uterine lining conducive to implantation, and support overall reproductive health.

3. Reduction of Cortisol Levels: High levels of stress can negatively impact fertility by disrupting hormone levels, ovulation, and sperm quality. Acupuncture helps reduce stress and promote relaxation by stimulating the release of endorphins and other neurotransmitters. Stress reduction may have a positive effect on fertility outcomes.

4. Modulation of the Autonomic Nervous System: Acupuncture influences the autonomic nervous system, which controls involuntary bodily functions such as heart rate, digestion, and reproductive processes. By modulating sympathetic and parasympathetic activity, acupuncture may promote a state of balance and homeostasis conducive to fertility.

5. Enhancement of Egg and Sperm Quality: Some proponents of acupuncture helps improve the quality of eggs and sperm by reducing oxidative stress, inflammation, and DNA damage. Additionally, acupuncture may enhance mitochondrial function and cellular metabolism, which are essential for optimal reproductive health.

6. Support of Fertility Treatments: Acupuncture is often used as a complementary therapy alongside conventional fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intrauterine insemination (IUI). Research suggests that acupuncture may help reduce stress and anxiety associated with fertility treatments, improve ovarian response to stimulation, and potentially enhance the success rates of embryo transfer and pregnancy rates.
