Infertility

At Nashua Acupuncture Center, we specialize in treating female and male infertility through the use of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.  Amanda Sutter-Francis is a Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (FABORM), one of two licensed acupuncturist in New Hampshire with this distinction. At Nashua Acupuncture Center, our goal is to enhance your fertility, making it possible for you to conceive naturally or through the use of western fertility treatments, including ART, IVF or IUI.  All patients seeking treatment for fertility are seen in private acupuncture only. Nashua Acupuncture Center provides pre and post IVF transfer acupuncture appointments 7 days per week. 

 

The use of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine for infertility has been cited in many journal articles. Here are some of the ways acupuncture can enhance your fertility:

 

  • Regulate the menstrual cycle
  • Stimulate egg production and improve egg quality
  • Increase blood flow to the endometrium to help facilitate a rich, thick lining for implantation
  • Regulate the hypothalmic-pituitary-ovarian axis
  • Prevent uterine contractions following IVF embryo transfer
  • Improve sperm count, motility and morphology
  • Decrease chance of miscarriage
  • Decrease stress 

 

 

Whether you are having difficulty conceiving naturally, the cause of your infertility is unexplained/unknown or undergoing western fertility treatments, we are here to help you. We respect where you are in the process of trying to conceive.
