Infertility Q & A

What causes infertility?

Infertility has many causes and may involve the reproductive health of the female or male partner. In some cases, infertility affects both partners.

Common causes of infertility include:

  • Gynecological conditions that affect the uterus or ovaries
  • Low sperm quality or count
  • Age
  • Alcohol or substance use
  • Obesity or underweight
  • Over-exercising

Infertility is common and occurs when you’re unable to conceive a baby after one year of trying or six months if you're older than 35. Having a hard time conceiving a baby takes a toll on your emotional well-being. 

How does stress affect infertility?

You may have feelings of guilt or shame when struggling with infertility. You may blame yourself for not conceiving. The stress of infertility takes a toll on your emotional and physical health and may strain your relationship.

Chronic stress related to infertility increases cortisol and epinephrine levels, the stress hormones. A rise in stress hormones negatively affects fertility, making it harder to conceive. 

Taking steps to lower your stress may improve your chances of conception. The team at Zen Attitude Acupuncture helps you find your zen, or your personal state of calm attentiveness, putting you back in tune with your health and body. 

What can I expect during an evaluation for infertility?

The details of your infertility evaluation at Zen Attitude Acupuncture depend on your unique situation. The team conducts a thorough evaluation, so they fully understand all the factors that may affect your fertility.

The team includes acupuncturists and naturopaths who focus on whole-body health, not just reproductive health. They review medical and sexual health history, as well as your daily diet and exercise habits, stressors, and usual routine. 

They look for physical and environmental factors that may affect fertility and health.

What therapies can help my infertility?

The team customizes your infertility treatment plan using various complementary and alternative therapies. Your plan may include acupuncture to restore balance and nutritional counseling to improve general health.

The team also offers homeopathic and vitamin injections, as well as life coaching. Your plan may also include craniosacral therapy, a gentle hands-on treatment that moves the cerebral and spinal fluid to improve the body’s natural healing power.

Infertility is complex, and no one approach works for all. Call Zen Attitude Acupuncture today or schedule your consultation online for a more holistic approach.
