Throughout their journey, it’s common for some women to go through fertility issues, ranging in all sorts of complexities and conditions. In these scenarios, acupuncture may help some women, especially with management of pain and other symptoms associated with adenomyosis.

In a nutshell, acupuncture is a traditional form of Chinese medicine and mode of therapy that’s been used successfully right across the globe for over five thousand years. Still in use today – especially at Eastern Therapies – it remains a non-invasive way to access relief for a number of symptoms. If symptoms are managed or diminished, there may also be a resulting effect where fertility is assisted. Read on to learn more.


How Does Adenomyosis Affect Fertility?

This condition refers to instances where the tissue in the uterus (the endometrium) grows in the muscular wall of the uterus.  This could enlarge the uterus, which causes it to become thicker than normal.

Women with adenomyosis, may show a wide variety of molecular alterations in the endometrium, causing altered receptivity.  This includes increased inflammatory markers, oxidative stress, reduced expression of implantation markers, and impairment of implantation.

While all of this can be overwhelming and stressful, the good news is that there is support and relief available, with one option being acupuncture.


Benefits and Effects of Acupuncture for Adenomyosis Symptoms

The effects of acupuncture on symptoms associated with adenomyosis have been researched. Acupuncture may assist in management of adenomyosis symptoms, including  heavy bleeding, pain and discomfort. Acupuncture techniques may also assist with blood flow, reduce inflammation and reduce oxidative stress in the uterus.

While research has shown positive effects of acupuncture on adenomyosis symptoms, this does not mean that it will work for everyone.
