One of the most emotionally draining experiences in the world is a couple’s struggle to get pregnant when nothing seems to work. Even with all our current high tech medicine, treating infertility can be frustratingly difficult.
More and more reproductive specialists are now referring couples to acupuncturists as a part of their treatment. Acupuncture works best in parallel with other, modern infertility treatments. For example, acupuncture can help the body get ready to make sure treatments like insemination, donor-egg transfer, or particularly IVF have the maximum chance of success. When done by a trained, licensed specialist like Dr. Mansouri, acupuncture is safe and without side effects. If you have tried other treatments without results, acupuncture can help you.
It is important to note that acupuncture cannot treat every type of infertility. In cases like a blocked fallopian tube, acupuncture will not help. It is important to consult with a knowledgeable acupuncturist before starting. In most cases, acupuncture should not replace other treatments, but rather work together with them, to insure the maximum chance for success. Things like diet, sleep, and lifestyle are also very important. Dr. Mansouri can help you improve every aspect of your life to maximize chances of conception. Dr. Mansouri is a licensed, board certified acupuncturist with over 20 years of experience helping patients in the Irvine and Orange County area. Before becoming an acupuncturist was a nurse midwife. She has a life long passion helping couples get the joy of having a child.
