Acupuncture for Fertility

Acupuncture for fertility treatment at CAM Therapies includes a comprehensive review of major factors proven to reduce fertility.

Lifestyle barriers to fertility

Acupuncture for fertility at CAM Therapies includes detailed review of major factors associated with infertility, including:

  • diet
  • supplements
  • weight
  • exercise
  • stress
  • alcohol
  • smoking
  • intercourse frequency and timing, etc.


But, we will not give you a long list of expensive fertility supplements to take or complicated diets to follow. We will only recommend small easy to implement changes proven to improve fertility.


Medical barriers to conception

We will check for evidence of medical conditions that can cause infertility. 

We will recommend what fertility tests you would benefit from and how to arrange them.

If you’ve already had infertility investigations, we will review your tests results to check if anything has been overlooked.

Our fertility acupuncturist, Irina Szmelskyj, teachеs about fertility tests acupuncturists, doctors and consultants nationally and internationally. She has detailed knowledge of infertility diagnostic tests and how to interpret them.


Previous pregnancies (if applicable)

If you or your partner have been pregnant before,  those pregnancies can give us a clue why you are having difficulties conceiving now. (All information is treated with the highest level of confidentiality.)


Family fertility history

We will look into your reproductive and obstetric family history as some fertility related medical conditions can be passed on. 


Fertility acupuncture diagnosis

Fertility acupuncture is a holistic treatment, so we will assess every system in your body to see if everything is working as well as it should.

It’s not unusual for a patient to be “fit and healthy” from a conventional medical point of view to have imbalances that need to be treated with acupuncture. 


Acupuncture for fertility treatment plan

We will then put together your fertility acupuncture treatment plan. In addition to acupuncture, your plan may include:

  • Easy to implement steps to reduce or eliminate modifiable barriers to conception
  • A referral for any additional infertility tests, and
  • Recommendations regarding assisted reproductive treatments such as IVF (if appropriate).

24/7 support

Going through infertility is stressful. As part of our acupuncture for fertility treatment we provide unlimited email and emergency phone support.
