Research indicates that Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine can be successfully used to help regulate menstrual cycles, reduce stress, and support FERTILITY whether trying to get pregnant naturally or using IVF, IUI, or any other treatments.
The benefits of acupuncture for fertility (female AND male) can have numerous positive effects, including:
- Higher rates of pregnancy and live births
- Regulation of erratic menstrual cycles
- Hormone regulation that helps produce higher numbers of follicles during IVF stimulation
- Increased blood flow to the reproductive organs and increased thickness of the uterine lining
- Improved sperm quality and quantity
- Relief from side effects of fertility medications
- Reduction in stress, anxiety, and depression, and deep relaxation
- Strengthened the immune system
How can It Help?
Acupuncture has been recommended to help relieve conditions that affect fertility, such as:
- Diminished Ovarian Reserve
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
- Irregular Menstrual Cycles
- Premature Ovarian Failure
- Advanced Maternal Age
- Luteal Phase Defect/Low Progesterone Levels
- Recurrent Miscarriages
- Poor Egg Quality
- Thin Uterine/Endometrial Lining
- Unexplained Fertility
- High or Elevated FSH
One of the factors that could be preventing pregnancy is stress. Studies have shown that women going through IVF under stress decreases the pregnancy rate. Acupuncture is deeply relaxing to both the mind and body, helping to reduce the internal stress and anxiety that often accompanies your fertility journey.
Helps With IVF
Some studies have shown that acupuncture before an IVF can have a positive effect on the success rates of pregnancy. The relation may come from the relaxation that acupuncture promotes.

Medical Micro-needling (Collagen Induction Therapy) with SkinPen Precision device is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment to rejuvenate the skin.

Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
At Compassion Acupuncture we offer various Fusion Meso Therapy serums that contain only pure active ingredients that offer a combination of peptides and growth factors, as well as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP).

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
Your provider will gently cleanse your skin. Topical anesthesia may be administered to assure maximum comfort during the treatment.
Skin Pen creates millions of controlled microchannels in the skin. This jump starts the production of collagen and elastin and encourages the release of growth factors that recruit and increase reparative cells. The result is a cascade of healing processes that can continue for months following your treatment.
The SkinPen treatment lasts approximately 30 minutes. Depending on whether an anesthetic is used prior to treatment, your entire treatment session may last up to one hour- still plenty of time to schedule your treatment before work or during your lunch hour. Be sure to speak with your provider before you come to get an accurate estimate, so you know how to plan your visit.
Your skin may initially appear slightly pink to red, similar to a mild sunburn. This is normal and should subside within 24 to 72 hours.
Some people see rejuvenated skin after just one treatment, and results may continue to improve for three to six months following your last treatment.

There are a variety of gastrointestinal and autoimmune diseases that can contribute to what is known as leaky gut syndrome. So, what exactly is leaky gut syndrome? It’s close to exactly what it sounds like. Each one of us has semi-permeable guts. What that means is the mucous lining of our intestines is designed to absorb water and nutrients from our food. Your intestinal lining is responsible for acting as a barrier to bacteria. With leaky gut syndrome, your intestinal lining “leaks” allowing more water and nutrients through, but also potentially allowing toxic molecules to come through as well. continue reading
