Chinese medicine & women’s fertility

When you come to your first Chinese Herbal Medicine or Acupuncture session we will talk through your entire fertility history, your diet and particular lifestyle stresses. The acupuncturist needs to take detailed notes on every area of your health, particularly information about menstrual cycles past and present.

Exploring your fertility journey is an individual process, and takes everything in your gynaecological history into account, including current and past conventional medical treatments and tests.

There will be time for questions and to look at realistic goals, including ideas about exercise, diet, supplements, cycle tracking and other treatments that are appropriate.

Many women are instinctively aware that physical problems can have their roots in emotional difficulties, and vice versa. Over time, as your individual treatment plan unfolds, you will find that the approach we take allows this integrity of the body/mind to be taken into account.
