One of the biggest reasons for not being able to conceive is low egg and/or sperm quality. While it is true that age plays a big part in the quality of gametes, it has also been proven that by increasing blood flow to critical organs of the reproductive system the quality of these sex cells can be dramatically improved. Studies have also shown that by increasing blood flow to the lining of the uterus (endometrium), the embryo has a better chance of implanting and surviving.
Acupuncture has been used for approximately 3,000 years to increase blood flow and treat an array of ailments, including infertility. Recent studies shows that acupuncture and electro-acupuncture can help improve egg quality, endometrium thickness, and sperm quality.
