Trying to Conceive
Assisting women along the path to motherhood
Does your dream for a baby feel out of reach?
Are you feeling exhausted, frustrated, angry or discouraged that your attempts to conceive haven’t been working? Is the emotional rollercoaster starting to wear you down and make you lose hope?
You thought you’d have gotten pregnant by now. Or, since you already have a child, you thought getting pregnant again would be easier than this. Perhaps you have been able to get pregnant, but after experiencing one or multiple losses you're not sure about trying to conceive again.
You never imagined that bringing a baby into your family would be this challenging.
We understand how painful this experience can be.
You’re fighting a sense of hopelessness as you wonder if there is something—anything—else you could do that would increase your chances of getting pregnant.
You’ve read the books, searched the web, read through forums. You’ve monitored your ovulation, done basal body temping, reduced your stress, changed your diet, and maybe even tried dozens of things from pineapple core to cough syrup to royal jelly.
You may have already seen an OBGYN or Reproductive Endocrinologist or have tried fertility medications, IUI or IVF—with no success, just troubling side effects.
Wherever you are on this journey, you may be wondering, is there anything else I can do to get pregnant?
Don’t give up hope.
You can improve your chances of conceiving by bringing your body back into balance using the holistic tools that we specialize in.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine offer practical guidance and effective treatment to help you achieve your goals.
Traditional Chinese medicine has been used for thousands of years to treat fertility concerns. Whether your struggle is unexplained by Western medicine or a reason for your difficulty in conceiving has been diagnosed already, Chinese medicine and acupuncture treatment can help correct the imbalance and restore health to your body, mind and spirit.
We understand your struggles in this area as part of a larger picture of disharmony. In order to achieve your goal of conceiving a child, many areas of your health may need to be addressed in order to bring the whole picture of your health to a more balanced place.
At Fertile Ground Women’s Health and Fertility Center you will be treated as a whole person, as an individual with a unique set of concerns. Understanding your fertility journey and your entire health picture is important for developing appropriate care. Treatments are based on an assessment of the underlying imbalances or blockages in the body that are causing the reproductive system to function incorrectly. Treatment may include acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and diet and lifestyle changes.
Specific benefits of treatment include:
- Regulating the menstrual cycle
- Reducing the symptoms of endometriosis, fibroids and cysts
- Promoting hormonal and endocrine system balance to address issues such as decreased ovarian reserves, PCOS, luteal phase defect, and thyroid disorders
- Improving ovarian function and blood flow to the reproductive organs to facilitate a healthy uterine lining and optimal follicular development
- Increasing the thickness of the uterine lining
- Supporting the immune system to decrease immune-related fertility disorders
- Reducing anxiety and stress
- Improving the success rate of IVF, IUI, and other assisted reproductive technologies, as well as lessening the side effects from hormonal treatments
