In women, acupuncture is able to improve fertility by:
- Regulating the menstrual cycle via correcting hormonal imbalances
- Enhancing follicular development in order to improve egg quality
- Thickening the lining of the uterus so when fertilisation of an egg has occurred the uterus is ready to assist in implantation of the embryo.
It is interesting to note the Chinese character for the word uterus translates roughly to foetal palace or house, so in essence we aim to get the house in order for the guest.
