If would love to have a baby but are having a hard time getting pregnant, there are some natural things you can try. These things are much less expensive than fertility treatments, so they are worth trying first.
You are not alone in having problems becoming pregnant. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 6% of married women in the United States aged 15 to 44 years are unable to get pregnant after trying for one year.
Massage therapy can help people in many ways, such as relieving stress, and helping with muscle pain. You may not be aware, however, that massage therapy may be helpful to you if you are having problems get pregnant.
There are many things that can cause infertility including:
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS): If you have PCOS, there is a hormonal imbalance in your body that can interfere ovulation. It can also cause cysts to grow on your ovaries. Massage therapy can help with this problem because it increases the blood circulation to your ovaries, which in turn brings fresh blood and nourishes the sperm eggs.
- Endometriosis: When a woman has endometriosis, she likely has painful cramping during her period. This is because the tissue that is found inside of the uterus is found outside of the uterus with this condition. Because it is outside, it can irritate anything that it touches. Over time, this can cause scarring that can block the fallopian tubes. Massage therapy can help with the pain from this condition. Massage also manipulates the around around the ovaries and fallopian tubes to stimulate fertility.
Find a holistic health professional in your area, and ask about acupuncture for your fertility issues. This can work well because it increases the blood flow to your ovaries and fallopian tubes. This nourishes the sperm egg, giving you a much better chance of the egg growing into a healthy baby that you will carry to term.
When you visit the holistic health professional, he or she will place the acupuncture needles in various pressure points. For example, he or she may place a needle a few inches below the uterus where the ovaries are located. They may also place a needle further down below the belly button where the uterus is located. The pressure points used depends much on the holistic health professional you use.
Acupuncture can also help to reduce stress that you may be feeling because you are having problems becoming pregnant.
Using massage therapy and/or acupuncture will take time so do not expect to become pregnant quickly. If you continue to have problems after a few months, you should visit your doctor for more treatment options (or contact companies like Awaken Integrative Wellness).Share
