How stress impacts fertility ?
Quoting this paper for impact of stress on hormones “In stress there is suppression of circulating gonadotropins and gonadal steroid hormones leading to disruption of the normal menstrual cycle. Prolonged exposure to stress can lead to complete impairment of reproductive function. In very simple terms, stress inhibits the production of hormones required for fertility and healthy pregnancy.
How does Acupuncture help in reducing stress symptoms ?
Acupuncture and Chinese traditional medicine is a holistic science. Acupuncture treatment effects modulate various neurophysiologic mechanisms during resistance periods of stress. Acupuncture decreases the stress response by regulating hormone production, increasing blood circulation to the ovaries and uterus. This reduction of stress improves all bodily functions including the reproductive system. This aids both with normal pregnancy and IVF pregnancy.
