Acupuncture can optimize fertility treatment by:
- Increasing blood flow in the uterus and improving the mucous membrane so that the egg can attach better
- Reducing side effects from hormone intake (such as headaches, malaise, etc.)
- Balancing the body and relaxing the uterus
- Strengthening the immune system
- De-stress the body
