There are many causes of infertility. The problem could be male, female or a combination of factors. Whatever the reason, our reproductive systems, hormone balances and immune systems are all impaired if we are stressed. Often the conception process can be stressful if it is not as rapid as expected.
Stress upsets the delicate balance between the hypothalamus (a region of the forebrain), the major endocrine gland and reproductive glands and is capable of preventing a woman from ovulating entirely. Research suggests that acupuncture can increase your chances of fertility by reducing stress, balancing the endocrine system and increasing the flow of cleaner blood to the reproductive organs.
In men, stress can alter sperm counts, motility, and can cause impotence. Acupuncture counters the symptoms of stress and cortisol by releasing endorphins in the brain. Encourage your man to book a treatment. You will find them more relaxed, sleeping better and having more energy in the bedroom.
