Pre-Conception Care for Fertility

The best, most effective way to help you achieve success on your fertility journey is to prepare you -- body, mind, and spirit-- for Pregnancy.

In Chinese Medicine, we consider the complete picture:  your diet, sleep habits, temperament and emotions, body temperature (i.e. whether you tend to feel too hot or too cold), past emotional and physical traumas or illnesses, your libido, and in women, the quality of your menstrual cycles and more -- to design a complete Pre-Conception Program that prepares you for healthy pregnancy.  

This is true for every individual patient, whether you want to conceive naturally or with the assistance of fertility treatments, like IUI and IVF.

If you have received a diagnosis of diminished ovarian reserve, PCOS, endometriosis, amenorrhea, or unexplained infertility, insufficient uterine lining, endocrine or autoimmune disorders, --- East Asian medicine offers effective treatment to help you conceive.

Chinese Medicine treatment is superbly compatible with the care you receive from your fertility specialist or gynecologist. Studies show that Chinese Medicine greatly enhances your response to medical treatments, and you can receive both simultaneously.

Even if your fertility doctor has told you that there are all kinds of reasons why you're unlikely to get pregnant, in my practice, I've seen many, many women defy those odds, and go on to have healthy babies, because they took time to improve the quality of health, their quality of life, and noticed a significant change.  

Perhaps you are concerned about your age, and feel like you're running out of time.  As long as you are menstruating and ovulating regularly, you do have options. The healthier you are, the more moments of peace and calm you experience each day, the more likely you are to nourish your fertility.  I'll work with you, and support you along the way, with balancing, harmonizing acupuncture treatments and when appropriate, herbal formulas. I'll also teach you some simple self-care, nourishing techniques you can do at home.  

We usually ask you to commit to treatment for 3 or 4 menstrual cycles, but I've seen many who conceive successfully in less time, while others take a bit longer.  It all depends on you, where you are in your life, and what elements of your busy life need balance and attention.

I am happy to talk with you in more detail.  Please feel free to call the office or send a message via our contact form.
