What is infertility?
Infertility is usually defined as the inability to conceive or carry a child even though the couple has had a normal sexual life without contraception for 12 months, or remains infertile 12 months after their last pregnancy.
What causes infertility?
Fertility is a very complex process and the following conditions must be met for it to be successful:
• The woman must be able to ovulate and the man needs to be able to produce adequate quantities of sperm.
• Both the egg and the sperm must be healthy.
• The egg and sperm must be able to meet and integrate in the fallopian tubes to form an embryo. The embryo must then be successfully sent to the uterus and implanted in the lining of the uterus before pregnancy will begin.
Anything wrong in these links will obstruct the pregnancy. The causes of infertility could be the woman’s problem, the man’s problem or both.
In women, the most frequent causes of infertility include:
In both men and women:
What treatment for infertility can you have?
Western medicine typically treats mechanical obstructions to fertilization and implantation, such as endometriosis, adhesions, and uterine fibroids, surgically. Ovulation problems due to endocrine disorders are treated with hormone therapy using synthetic hormones to supply whatever is deficient or missing. If infertility is due to infections of the reproductive tract (e.g. hostile mucous), these are treated with antibiotics.
Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF), gamete-intra-fallopian transfer (GIFT), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and intrauterine insemination (IUI) has improved greatly in recent years and an increasing number of couples have benefited from the scientific advances. However, these are invasive, expensive, and frequently emotionally dissatisfactory.
Nowadays, more and more couples are turning to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and fertility acupuncture, either as a standalone treatment, or in conjunction with their Western treatments to improve their chances of conceiving and delivering healthy babies.
What can TCM do for you?
If you do have difficulty getting pregnant, fertility acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are very effective alternative treatments. TCM has successfully treated many cases of both female and male infertility.
How does TCM help treat infertility?
TCM can help treat infertility in many ways:

Helped at the centre:
TCM is widely renowned for its effectiveness in helping treat infertility, especially in cases where other treatments have not worked as intended. At our Melbourne clinic, Dr. Xing has treated a very large number of patients suffering from infertility, with most of them being able to successfully conceive after fertility acupuncture and TCM treatment, including many who have had a history of repeated IVF failures, or other conditions such as PCOS and endometriosis..
One lady had been having trouble falling pregnant, and had tried several methods, but to no avail. She had undergone two procedures of IUI, but this didn’t help either. Seeing no other alternative, the patient considered undergoing IVF treatment. After visiting our Melbourne clinic for support treatment, Dr. Xing used fertility acupuncture and Chinese herbs to help with her condition. Within months, she had managed to conceive naturally, before even undergoing IVF. She has now given birth to a very healthy baby boy.
A patient had been suffering from infertility associated with irregular periods, uterus fibroids, and thyroid cyst. She decided to visit the Evergreen Chinese Medical Centre to seek treatment. After three months of Chinese herbal treatment, her menstrual cycle had returned to normal, and she fell pregnant soon after.
Another patient with endometriosis had been trying to fall pregnant for two years, without success. After several courses of prescribed fertility drugs and surgical procedures didn’t help the condition, she thought that IVF would be the only option left to try. One day, a friend recommended that she visit our clinic, and so she decided to seek Dr. Xing’s treatment for her condition. After just one menstrual cycle, or four weeks of treatment, she had fallen pregnant.
