Over the past couple of decades I've treated many fertility patients with success. Everyone is on a different step in their journey. Remember that a lot of people don't talk about all of the things they've tried or how long it took them to get pregnant. You just hear that another friend or relative is pregnant and may think, "Why is it happening for them and not me?"
They may have been trying for the past five years or even longer and may have tried every assisted reproductive path out there before it happened for them. But you don't hear about the struggle, you hear about the result.
So I want you to take a deep breath right now. Give yourself some love and kindness and know you're doing your best and you'll get there. Very few couples are actually infertile. I say couples because it's not just a woman's issue. There are men who aren't able to conceive as well.
In fact, 50% or more of infertility issues are male issues - sperm count, motility, morphology, etc. I highly recommend that you have your partner tested as soon as possible to get the entire picture.
It used to be that a couple was considered to have "infertility issues" after two years of trying - now that's been minimized to one year. So don't stress, because that works against you.
When the body is under stress, reproduction is put on the back burner. The body prioritizes survival over reproduction. It makes sense if your life is truly in danger. But in modern times, everyone is constantly stressed over things that won't kill us. It does a great deal of damage to fertility. You can't get pregnant if you're constantly stressed.
And the fertility process is inherently stressful. So instead of entertaining those stressed or worried thoughts I'd like you to immediately say, "Thank you, thank you, thank you for my happy healthy baby" until you feel calm again. Worry only brings more of what you don't want. It's not productive or helpful in the fertility world.
There are so many reasons that a couple isn't getting pregnant and its individual. I treat every fertility patient as an individual, unique picture. I get to the underlying causes of your infertility so you're able to have a successful, healthy pregnancy. Acupuncture and herbs work wonders for fertility.
I like to work with you as a team. I want to empower you on your fertility path and minimize your stress. Acupuncture has been shown to triple the success rate of getting pregnant. I've had a lot of success treating infertility with acupuncture and in some cases I will also add herbs depending on what is needed. My patients are always happier and less stressed once they've started acupuncture with me.
I think it's very smart to get acupuncture while trying to get pregnant. It not only assists fertility, it will help you be healthier and more balanced going into and during your pregnancy. Make an appointment today and let's be a team to get you pregnant as quickly as possible.
