Fertility and Acupuncture

“Why can’t I become pregnant when I really want to?” “ How long do I have to continue doctor visits before I conceive?” Many people have these questions. I/We support your desire to become a mother.

Do you know the average age of marriage?

  • The word “late marriage” is heard commonly nowadays, but do you know the actual average age of marriage in Japan? According to a survey by the Health and Labor ministry in 2016, it is 29.4 years old for female. More women tend to marry in their 30s and some in their 40s. The average age of first-time mothers is 30.7 years old. This means delivery is most common in women in 30s. This situation is not unique to Japan. Around the globe, most countries are experiencing a shift in population, with later marriages and births and increasing issues of infertility.

Infertility treatmen

  • Infertility is defined by the failure to achieve a pregnancy after a year or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse between two healthy individuals, man and woman. The body condition reaches its optimum conditions for conception when women are around 20 years old and it becomes increasingly difficult in the late 30s. After the age of 45, the possibility of conception becomes very low. The reasons on the female side can stem from problems in ovulation or with fallopian tubes. On the male side, problems can occur from the low quality of sperm or sexual dysfunction, which can be often observed in men over 35 years old.

  • There are more and more patients seeking help for fertility as late marriages become more common. Now 1 in 6 couples are suffering from this. As of September 2019, over 500,000 babies conceived through artificial assistance were born in Japan since the first test tube baby in 1983. One in 17 babies are fertilized by treatment such as in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Do you know how to bring your body to a better conceivable condition?

  • Since the world’s first test tube baby birth in England 45 years ago, new breakthroughs in infertility treatment are consistently achieved and that gives c patients greater options and choice. However, not everyone can successfully conceive a child and a pregnancy to term by western medicine methods. The stress of not being successful for a long time and the pressure from other family members can be heavy enough to bring patients to a nervous breakdown.

  • Conception and delivery are the result of many miraculous factors like the right condition of two bodies at the right time. And a fertilized egg has to survive safely all the way to the day of delivery. That is how life comes into this world.

  • As parents, it is necessary to be well-prepared for procreation. Eastern medicine can support mental preparation as well as physical preparation, while western medicine tends to focus only on physical aspects.
    In eastern medicine, we look at the entire body to balance one’s mental and physical condition.

Those who wish for natural conception

  • Do you keep basal temperature?
    Is your menstruation regular?
    Have you had infertility evaluation?
    It is important to know the cause of infertility for those who want to conceive a child. This is not only important for women but also for men. Once the cause is clear, it lets doctors choose the correct treatment and increases the chance of conception. Some young couples decide that it is still too early to seek a specialist’s advice and miss the best time of conception, which is in their 20s.
    Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions and voice any concerns you may have about acupuncture and infertility treatment.

Those who are working on IUI or IVF

  • I hear many patients do not know what medication they are taking because they cannot ask their doctors as they seem too busy. I not only treat you physically, but also listen to your concerns about western medicine treatment to help promote greater peace of mind as you go through this often stressful time.
