Be + Well Acupuncture is proud to support the families of North County San Diego during their fertility journey. Whether you are undergoing IVF or are trying naturally, acupuncture greatly increases pregnancy and birth rates, reduces stress, and can make labor and delivery easier. Acupuncture for fertility support comes highly recommended by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine. If you are still in the planning stages, it is recommended to begin acupuncture treatments 3 months prior to actively trying to conceive or 3 months before beginning IVF treatments if possible. We are happy to work alongside your OBGYN or reproductive endocrinologist along the way.
Acupuncture, whether utilized independently or in combination with herbal remedies, has demonstrated numerous positive effects, including:
- Enhanced Uterine Blood Flow: Acupuncture promotes increased blood circulation to the uterus, which can improve the uterine environment for conception and implantation.
- Improved Ovarian Function: By stimulating the ovaries, acupuncture may help enhance ovarian function, leading to improved follicle development and better egg quality.
- Hormonal Regulation: Acupuncture has the potential to regulate hormone levels, fostering hormonal balance and optimizing reproductive health.
- Prevention of Uterine Contraction: Acupuncture treatments can help prevent uterine contractions, reducing the risk of early pregnancy loss.
- Reduction of Drug Side Effects: Acupuncture has been found to mitigate the adverse effects of fertility medications, minimizing discomfort and enhancing overall well-being during the treatment process.
- Immune System Regulation: Acupuncture has the ability to modulate the immune system, creating a more favorable environment for successful conception and pregnancy.
- Decreased Miscarriage Risk: By addressing underlying factors that contribute to miscarriage, acupuncture may help reduce the chances of pregnancy loss.
- Reduction of Physical and Emotional Stress: Acupuncture can provide relaxation and stress relief, supporting both physical and emotional well-being during the fertility journey.
- Improved Egg and Sperm Quality: Acupuncture has been associated with enhancing the quality of eggs and sperm, potentially increasing the chances of successful fertilization and healthy embryo development.

Preparing for IUI:
For individuals undergoing IUI cycles, we focus on promoting all four phases of the menstrual cycle, similar to natural cycles. Whether you are pursuing a natural IUI without medications or including some form of medication, we will determine the appropriate acupuncture treatment plan for you. Generally, we recommend acupuncture sessions once or twice per week to support all phases of the cycle. Some individuals opt for an additional session around the time of the IUI procedure.
