Female and Male Fertility Treatment Clinic in Brisbane
Fertility requires balanced hormones, structurally sound reproductive organs, good health and a nutritious diet. Even with these conditions being met, the chances of a healthy couple conceiving each month are just 25%.
A couple is considered infertile if they have not conceived after one year of having unprotected sex. Infertility is an increasing problem, particularly in Australia where one in six couples are diagnosed as infertile. In about 10% of these cases the exact reason is unknown. In other cases, either the female or the male has a reproductive problem, or both partners can be infertile.
At East West fertility we have over 30 years’ experience in helping couples conceive – we undertake a holistic approach to pre-conception care and conception care for each partner – encompassing acupuncture, herbs and supplements and dietary and lifestyle changes.
Chinese Medicine views fertility as a balanced reproductive system that produces fluctuations in the Yin and Yang. For the reproductive system to function at its peak there must also be balance in all body systems. Regular acupuncture with us, remedial massage, herbs and supplements can help you reach that balance.
East West Fertility treats a wide range of women’s health disorders that cause infertility such as:
- Anovulation (no ovulation)
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
- Amenorrhea (no periods)
- Luteal phase insufficiency
- Menstrual irregularities
- Endometrial lining problems
- Implantation disorders
- Impaired oestrogen metabolism
- Sperm antibodies (hostile cervix)
- Acquired ovarian failure (for example, as a result of chemotherapy)
- Early menopause
We treat a range of men’s health disorders that cause infertility such as:
- Low testosterone levels
- Low sperm count
- Poor sperm motility
- Poor volume
- Poor liquefaction
- Abnormal morphology (shape)
From a Chinese Medicine perspective infertility is a manifestation of reproductive imbalance coupled with impaired general health and wellbeing.
Our Female Infertility Program uses acupuncture, Chinese and Western herbs, lifestyle adjustments and nutritional therapies to promote fertility, improve general health, and support the possibility of conceiving a healthy baby. This treatment approach is also used for the general Pre-Conception Care program. We understand Pre-Conception Care is necessary when planning a pregnancy because a woman needs to be healthy to produce good quality eggs. The health of the reproductive system is assessed through general health checkups and the charting of various changes throughout the menstrual cycle.
