Combining Acupuncture and IUI to Treat Infertility

In the United States alone 6.1 million couples suffer from infertility issues and 25% of them are found to have more than one cause. If you are looking for help with fertility issues, you can find many clinics that perform inseminations in Seattle. Surprisingly, the old and the new are now teaming up in a way that seems to be working for some couples.

The Ancient Art of Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been used for more than 2000 years and originated in China where it is used to treat almost any disease you can think of, including infertility. In modern medicine in America it has steadily gained in popularity. Somehow this ancient art works. The World Health Organization and the National Institute of Health both recognize it as an alternative treatment for infertility.

IUI or Intrauterine Insemination

This procedure is when sperm is placed directly inside a woman’s uterus. If there are issues with sperm motility or issues of a cervical nature, they are all bypassed. Only the best quality sperm is used during the procedure and is injected into the uterus through a catheter. The procedure is relatively inexpensive and has been found to result in pregnancies 15 to 20% of the time. It has been found though that if you combine acupuncture and IUI, your chances may increase. If you start acupuncture treatments three or four months prior to IUI treatments, stress levels will be lower and your immune system will have been boosted as well as your hormone level will be better adjusted. If you’re ready to try and start your family, the Seattle Naturopathy and Acupuncture Center believes in a holistic approach to intrauterine insemination. Their clinic setting is warm and welcoming and their staff and physicians are all experienced in the field.
