Infertility

Infertility is the inability to naturally conceive a child or the inability to carry a pregnancy to term. There are many reasons why a couple may not be able to conceive, or may not be able to conceive without medical assistance.

According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, infertility affects about 6.1 million people in the U.S., equivalent to ten percent of the reproductive age population. Female infertility accounts for one third of infertility cases, male infertility for another third, combined male and female infertility for another 15%, and the remainder of cases are "unexplained"2.

In Chinese Medicine, infertility is caused by liver tension and kidney deficiency. Liver tension is caused by anxiety and stress about getting pregnant. Kidney deficiency is caused by poor sleeping, lack of exercise and history of birth control pill.

Treatment includes acupuncture and herbal supplements.
