Women’s Health

Being diagnosed as infertile can be devastating for an individual or couple. There are many conditions that can lead to difficulty in conceiving a child.

The following is a list of conditions that many women are diagnosed with. Often times with the support of Traditional Chinese Medicine these women are still able to get pregnant and have healthy babies:

  • Advanced Maternal Age AMH-Antimullerian Hormone
  • Anovulatory cycle
  • Amenorrhea Endometriosis
  • High Follicule Stimulating Hormone
  • Luteal Phase Defect
  • Male Factors
  • Pelvic Adhesions
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
  • Poor Egg Quality Recurrent Miscarriage
  • Secondary Infertility
  • Unexplained Infertility
  • Tubal Obstruction
  • Uterine Fiberoids

While these diagnoses are helpful in explaining the happenings from a Western perspective, they do not provide Chinese Medicine practitioners with the information they need to support individuals with their health goals, namely, conception and pregnancy.

We, at Culpepper Acupuncture, dig deeper than the information presented on a lab panel. Our goal is to understand how your whole system: your physiology; anatomy; mental; emotional; and spiritual self are either promoting or deterring a pregnancy from occurring. Please see “How It Works” for more information on exactly how Chinese Medicine can support you and your child in the conception and birthing process.
