Acupuncture is a very helpful treatment for both balancing the hormones and the menstrual cycle. It also plays a huge role in reducing the stress that can interfere with fertility. If you do have access to acupuncture, I recommend trying monthly sessions with an Acupuncturist who specializes in fertility or women’s health. Acupuncture is relaxing and rejuvenating and has thousands of years of historical use in women’s health and fertility to back it. There are different strategies for acupuncture treatments during different times of the menstrual cycle. Traditional Chinese acupuncture methods customize the point selection for the specific patient and the energetic imbalances that they present with. If you have access and finances to include Acupuncture, I highly recommend it.
