Acupuncture can increase fertility by reducing stress,increasing blood flow to reproductive organs and balancing the endocrinesystem according to several studies and medical research.

It is thought that the increased blood flow helps boost fertility by stimulating the ovaries to produce healthy eggs as well as enriching the endometrial lining in the uterus. The rich endometrial lining helps to ensure the eggs will be held to term.

Acupuncture also helps to relax the uterus and stop contractions, so blood flow increases and an embryo successfully implants.
