TTC, Men and Acupuncture


Acupuncture and Male FertilityWe are lucky that there are so many products and medical assistance options out there to help us along our TTC journey.  Many women probably have a TTC plan that includes some combination of the following; ovulation test strips, an ovulation fertility monitor, lubricants like Pre-Seed, supplements like FertiAid and Fertilitea, and/or fertility drugs.  They may even be researching options such as IVF or IUI to help them become pregnant.

In addition to the above options, it is also becoming more common for women to also include Eastern inspired fertility treatments such as massage, acupuncture, yoga and/or hypnosis as part of their extensive TTC plan as well. 

But did you know that men can also benefit from acupuncture while you are trying to become pregnant?

Recent studies have shown that acupuncture may in fact give a boost to the healthy sperm and reduce the number of abnormal swimmers.  In addition, it can help with blood flow and libido. 

If you have been trying to get pregnant for awhile, sometimes the calculated sex calendar can start to weigh heavily on both of you.  Acupuncture may be an option for giving your partner an extra spark and help him bring his most stellar sperm to the bedroom!
