Boosting Female Fertility through Acupuncture

FOR WOMEN who want to become pregnant, it is important to foster a nurturing environment for a healthy pregnancy. Unfortunately, the stresses of our daily lives coupled with our age, genetics, environmental influences, chronic stress, lack of sleep, and poor dietary choices can make conception difficult. Meet Dr. Mita Daneshrad, who knows how to balance your system to create an ideal environment for a baby. With acupuncture fertility, Los Angeles, Dr. Mitra will increase blood supply to the ovaries, improve the integrity of the uterine lining, and create a more nurturing environment in order to achieve pregnancy. By regulating your hormones, Dr. Mitra can help regulate your menstrual cycle; this means you would be ovulating regularly, which in turn contributes to follicular development. She can also assist in the control of symptoms such as PMS, breast tenderness, cramping, and mood swings.

A Word from Dr. Mitra

Dr. Mitra Daneshrad

“I helped one patient of mine conceive a baby with her husband when she was 44 years old. After reviewing her history and her lab results, I sent her to a reproductive endocrinologist who recommended IVF (in vitro fertilization), so I had to make her body’s environment ready for the retrieval of the follicles, and also receive and nurture the embryos. That’s where I encountered several issues. She experienced Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome, which may occur in women using fertility medication. She experienced symptoms like extreme bloating, abdominal pain, and swelling in her hands and feet. My treatment plan was to use acupuncture and Chinese herbs to reduce the severity of those symptoms and bring her body back into balance. I treated her before and after the embryo transfer to support, relax, and control her body’s environment through the in vitro fertilization. Ultimately, her IVF was successful: she was able to have 4 embryos. She later gave birth to a beautiful baby boy.”

How Los Angeles #1 Acupuncture &
Fertility Clinic Helps

Cupping Therapy

Natural Pregnancy Preparation

For those planning to start a new family, the acupuncture fertility clinic in Los Angeles is the perfect destination. We do not claim to provide fertility treatment but assist in overcoming fertility complications and achieving a normal pregnancy. We help couples understand their individual health and what they need to do to conceive. But that’s not all. We help you cope with the physical and emotional changes after childbirth. It’s a long journey and we are here to empower couples through their overall health and well-being.

Assisting IVF, IUI, and other ART therapies

Infertility affects nearly 12% of women of reproductive age in the United States. Despite the advances in the medical field, many couples are left dejected even after trying many recommended assisted reproductive technology (ART) therapies such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), and Intrauterine insemination (IUI). At our Los Angeles acupuncture and fertility clinic, you can improve the success rate by combining IVF or IUI and acupuncture. A research study confirmed how combining IUI and acupuncture increased the treatment’s success rate from 39.4% to 65.5%. Likewise, multiple researchers have thrown their weight behind acupuncture to improve the IVF success rate by 65%.

Surrogacy and Adoption

For many couples, surrogacy, and adoption are the closest solutions to getting pregnant. However, there are complications that most people shy away from speaking about. Many couples have their silent breakdowns which make things worse if not better. That’s where Dr. Mitra comes into the picture and proposes tailored acupuncture therapy for their physical and emotional health. If needed, we can also separately run acupuncture sessions for men and women. We help couples overcome their inner struggle and mentally prepare for parenthood in a way that’s different from many others around.

Dr. Mitra has been an angel as I have been on my fertility journey!! I began seeing her after a failed IVF attempt, preparing for a second attempt. Based on her recommendation to change my diet, and having weekly sessions with her before my 2nd attempt, my AMH levels improved to normal and I had lost 20 lbs all within 2 months time. I believe her help allowed for a successful 2nd IVF procedure, and I am well into my second trimester currently! She is very knowledgeable and extremely passionate about her patients and their experience. I would highly recommend her as a wonderful acupuncturist!

My husband and I had been trying to conceive for 7 months. I started seeing Mitra Daneshrad in November 2019 because at that time my cycles started becoming irregular. Before seeing a fertility specialist at the one year mark of trying or, taking any fertility medication we wanted to try an alternative approach. Fast forward to February 2020 and I just found out we're expecting! Thanks to Mitra and her knowledge and experience with infertility and acupuncture for helping us through our ttc journey. Mitra is extremely sweet and friendly and makes you feel super comfortable and relaxed. If you've ever questioned whether acupuncture works for infertility, I believe it does! I would definitely recommend Mitra to any couples who are struggling with trying to conceive.

I was initially referred to Dr. Mitra for lower back and sciatica pain related to a herniated disc. Her weekly treatments offered relief as well as a feeling of rejuvenation in my overall body. The added bonus of seeing Dr. Mitra is her extensive knowledge and experience with fertility and the female reproductive system. She not only worked on my back pain, but was also able to help with my cycle and any other issues that would come up for me such as nasal congestion. She is a great practitioner to have in one's overall health & wellness regimen.

Extremely healing, helpful and friendly. I have been coming to her for over a year and the treatments are always beneficial. And I am rather particular, so that means a lot. Well kept offices and other great doctors in the same space. She also shares daily affirmations to meditate on while on the table, which I enjoy.

Dr. Mitra is the absolute best! I was lucky enough to do Accupuncture sessions with her throughout my infertility struggles, pregnancy, birth of my miracle baby, post natal recovery and now as I try for my second! Mitra is so knowledgeable, kind and a fertility expert. She also treats any additional symptoms (emotional and physical) you are faced with each week. Truly, I believe she was integral part of my healthy pregnancy. She is very accommodating and truly cares.

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine that is practiced for more than 3,500 years. Many couples turn to acupuncture as an alternative solution to  improve their chances of conceiving. 

While the exact mechanism is still not fully understood, there are several theories that may explain why acupuncture for fertility is still preferred. 

  1. Regulating Hormones: Acupuncture helps to regulate the hormones that control ovulation. It helps promote regular menstrual cycles and increases the chances of ovulation.
  2. Improving Blood Flow: Acupuncture has been shown to increase blood flow to the ovaries and uterus. It further aids in the development of follicles and the implantation of a fertilized egg.
  3. Reducing Stress: Acupuncture helps to reduce stress and anxiety, which may help to improve fertility.
  4. Improving Sperm Quality: Acupuncture for men’s fertility is encouraged as it may improve sperm quality and overall reproductive functions.
  5. Supporting IVF: Acupuncture may also be beneficial for couples undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) by helping to improve the success rate of the procedure.

Overall, acupuncture is a safe and effective alternative therapy for infertile couples. To learn more about your chances of conceiving, visit our acupuncture and fertility clinic in Los Angeles.

Acupuncture is generally considered safe when performed by a qualified and licensed practitioner who uses sterile needles and follows safety and hygiene procedures for infection control. 

However, as with any medical treatment, it is important to discuss any potential risks with a healthcare provider before trying it. For instance, acupuncture is generally not recommended for individuals suffering from bleeding disorders or those with pacemakers or other implanted medical devices.

It is difficult to provide a specific answer to this question as the effectiveness of acupuncture for fertility varies from person to person. Many studies favor acupuncture for fertility while others demand large-scale studies for accurate results.

Also, the chances of conceiving depend on many other factors, including the underlying cause of infertility, age, and overall health. And that’s where acupuncture works.  

How about consulting our licensed acupuncturist in Los Angeles? Dr. Mitra  has helped many couples conceive via acupuncture in the past and still continuing to do so.

At our acupuncture fertility clinic in Los Angeles, we provide customized treatment plans. The final estimate can only be provided after initial examination and discussions. We accept many PPOs as well as some HMO companies. Please contact us and get it sorted.
