What to expect from your fertility treatment? Women are diagnosed as reproductively challenged if they have been trying to conceive for more than one year (for women under 35) or for six months (for women over 35), yet infertility can be caused by a number of factors and conditions. They include poor nutrition, stress, medications, past use of hormonal
birth control and pathological conditions.
Depending on the severity of your condition, a practitioner will usually recommend a treatment schedule of 2-3 sessions per week for the first 3-4 weeks, tapering gradually to a maintenance schedule of once per
week depending on how well the patient responds to acu-therapy.
Patients are also given herbs to regulate the cycle and enhance reproductive factors. While the cost of fertility treatments may seem daunting, Sustain Community Acupuncture offers several package options that make the price significantly lower compared to other fertility centers and artificial reproductive methods.
