Infertility can be caused either by female or male factors. When you search "infertility" on line, many websites will provide you information about it (see the bottom of this pages). There are many modern methods that Western doctors can help you try to conceive. However, there is only certain rate of success

In the NIH MedlinePlus website, it wrote acupuncture "May improve pregnancy rates following in vitro fertilization (IVF). In fact, not only acupuncture may improve pregnancy rates for IVF. Both Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture can significantly enhance the chance of pregnancy, and combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbal formula works more effective. Now more and more patients are turning to Chinese medicine for help when they are trying to get pregnant naturally or preparing for IUI (intrauterine insemination) or IVF (in-vitro fertilization). 

When your OB/GY doctor could not find any cause for your infertility, female menstrual disorder, or male sexual dysfunction, Chinese doctor may tell you that you have Qi and blood deficiency or blockage, or Kidney, Liver or Spleen dysfunction (Please note that the concepts of Kidney, Liver or Spleen in Chinese medicine are different from these in modern medicine).  

Chinese medicine believes that poor life style, improper diet, stress, less or over exercise may all cause Qi and blood deficiency or blockage. Symptoms such as irregular menstruation, severe abdominal cramping or breast tenderness, lower back sourness, migraine headache before or during menstruation, or heavy blood clot are all signs of Qi and blood disorder in Chinese medicine. 


Our experts are especially good at treatment of male and female infertility with the combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbs.

Dr. Liu has many years' extensive experience treating unexplained infertility (Western diagnosis), menstruation disorders caused by endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), uterine fibroids, and recurrent miscarriage, as well as male sexual disorder and infertility.
