Fertility Treatment at The Hatfield Practice

Fertility Treatment at The Hatfield Practice


At The Hatfield Practice, we treat many women and couples who are at different stages on the path to pregnancy and birth. We are confident that we can offer you the best possible care, no matter what stage you may be at. Acupuncture has been used as a treatment for infertility in China for thousands of years, and recent research has shown that it can be a very effective adjunct to more modern Western treatments for infertility such as IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation), IUI and ICSI.

It takes two loving people to make a baby. Its essential that infertility is viewed as a shared challenge as this provides support and shares the challenge. Although it is mostly women that visit our practice first – 45-50% of all fertility problems is due to the man having a sperm defect. Acupuncture at the Hatfield Practice is able to treat both female and male infertility.

Many recognised conditions can contribute to or cause infertility. Some of the more common ones that acupuncture can help with are PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)Uterine Polyps or Fibroids and Endometriosis.

Medical testing of  your ‘ovarian reserve’ such as the day 3 FSH test will help to give a good indication of   of the number of good quality eggs a woman has in her ovaries. Many NHS or medical fertility clinics need  a woman’s FSH levels to be  below a certain levels. Our Acupuncture for fertility at The Welwyn and Hatfield Practice is sucessful, Acupuncture treatment is great at  reducing high FSH levels.

Our Traditional Chinese medicine approach to female fertility starts by looking at a woman’s menstrual cycle with temperatures and charts. Treatment and lifestyle changes will regulate it. Your individual history  that you  experience at different times of the month, for example fluctuations in the basal body temperature (BBT) will help us acquire vital clues as to the condition of our patients kidney yin, yang energy and blood flow (stagnation of qi or blood). Theses unique  symptoms and changes in your body temperature will be different for everyone. Acupuncture treatment will be tailored  to your exact needs for that time of the month. This focused treatment plan is what makes our Hatfield Acupuncture so effective.

Your Acupuncture treatment will aim to clear any stagnation of (chee) qi and blood energy, and to re-energise  kidney yin and yang vital energy that is important for fertility. As your health and qi begins to increase you will improvements such as a reduced  period pain and improved period cycle regularity. Your overall health may become better and you will  feel more energetic and relaxed. These are common dynamic health changes brought about by your Hatfield Acupuncture treatment. Our experience has shown us that the better you feel, the better your fertility  will be in the long run.
