Many women can’t conceive because of poor egg quality or low ovarian reserve. Acupuncture cannot increase ovarian reserve but can improve egg quality. Remember, all you need is one good egg. Acupuncture and herbal medicine are very good at increasing the health of the uterine lining as well as thickening it. There are no known pregnancies with 4 mm linings. If you have that lining, before you decide to use a surrogate, try acupuncture and herbal medicine to expand the thickness of the endometrium.

Acupuncture and herbs are very good at treating low sperm count, poor morphology, poor motility, and sperm DNA fragmentation issues. Acupuncture and herbs are very good at preventing a miscarriage, obviously not miscarriage due to chromosomal abnormalities, but miscarriages resulting from not enough blood flow to the placenta. There are many other things that acupuncture and herbs can be successfully used in the context of benefiting reproductive outcomes.
