Can Yoga or Acupuncture Help You Conceive?

If nothing else, can it hurt to try? The cost of undergoing acupuncture to increase your fertility may cost several hundred dollars, over the course of several months. Compare that to cost of up to 20,000 dollars for a course of fertility treatments; what do you have to lose?

Modern science is still at a loss to explain how acupuncture works, but there is some evidence to suggest that this painless therapy can increase the endorphins (or feel good hormones) in your brain and reduce stress levels. Acupuncture can also increase blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, allowing them to function at peak levels.

If you think you’re having difficulty conceiving, then discuss treatment options with your doctor. Never begin taking any supplements or herbal remedy without first discussing it with your doctor. Yoga is a form of exercise, and you should be cleared by your doctor before beginning any yoga program.
