Infertility Q & A

Evia Medical Center

How do you treat infertility?

Evia Medical Center helps men and women facing infertility issues with a comprehensive fertility treatment plan that includes a combination of dietary and lifestyle counseling, nutritional supplements, and acupuncture sessions.

Some fertility patients come to Evia Medical Center as their first attempt for help. In other cases, the medical and acupuncture team collaborates with their OB/GYN or fertility specialist on Long Island to help women conceive.

Can acupuncture treat infertility?

Evia Medical Center's customized acupuncture treatments have achieved high pregnancy success rates for women through their early 40s.

Published research has shown the efficacy of acupuncture treatments for women having difficulty conceiving. Acupuncture has been proven to actually increase the effectiveness of many common drugs that are taken to increase fertility since it can naturally increase the hormone levels that travel to the ovaries.

Acupuncture can be used prior to, and concurrently with, fertility medications and procedures such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF). In general, the skill of the acupuncturist can result in better results regardless of the issue. Evia Medical Center has a highly effective acupuncture team for addressing both male and female fertility issues.

Acupuncture techniques for fertility can also:

  • Reduce stress
  • Optimize blood flow
  • Increase endorphin levels (the body's "feel good" hormones)
  • Stimulate the endocrine system
  • Achieve hormone balance

Is acupuncture safe to use for fertility treatment?

Both the NIH and World Health Organization recognize the clinical benefits of acupuncture, and health insurance covers some treatments. Evia Medical Center utilizes strict medical safety and sterile needle technique protocols during all acupuncture treatments. Needles are always new and never reused.

The acupuncturists at Evia Medical Center are all experienced, licensed professionals who hold Masters’ degrees in Oriental Medicine. Your fertility acupuncture treatment is administered as part of an integrative approach to care, with your primary physician working in conjunction with your acupuncturist to ensure that all aspects of your health and well-being are addressed.

Evia Medical Center has a reputation for helping patients dealing with infertility issues, either as their first line of treatment or in conjunction with their OB/GYN or fertility specialist. The integrative team provides both a medical and holistic approach to care. Call today to learn more about the range of infertility services available.
