Acupuncture for Intrauterine Insemination

If you’re doing intrauterine insemination (IUI) with a clinic or at home, Chinese medicine can increase your chances of falling pregnant. A comparative research study has shown significantly higher rates of pregnancy for women having regular Chinese medicine during IUI compared to those having no treatment. The use of acupuncture for IVF has been extensively studied and many of its positive effects can be extended to women doing IUI.


Chinese medicine works in a number of ways to enhance your fertility. Acupuncture and herbal medicine treatments can:


~ support natural, regular ovulation

~ promote the smooth passage of the egg in the fallopian tube

~ improve blood flow to the uterus

~ assist with implantation

~ support early pregnancy and help to prevent miscarriage


Fertility treatments can be stressful and invasive; acupuncture can calm your nervous system, helping you to feel relaxed and positive.


Regular weekly or fortnightly treatments are ideal to help you get the best results with Chinese medicine. You may also choose to add a treatment 3-4 days after insemination for maximum benefit.
