In our offices, we treat all types of fertility issues. Some are simple and quickly rectified, some are more complex and take a bit longer. Since up to 30% of a couple's fertility problems may stem from male health issues, we recommend treatments for both the mother-to-be and the father-to-be.
Treatments for fertility enhancement include weekly acupuncture sessions and herbal formulas. Each treatment is individualized to the patient, with customized treatments adapted to each of the four phases of the menstrual cycle.
