Chinese medicine focuses on preconception health to prevent miscarriage. We also continue to treat our pregnant patients for thirteen weeks after pregnancy is confirmed because 90% of miscarriages occur in the first twelve weeks.
Optimal reproductive health is important for both partners to achieve. Acupuncture increases blood flow to the reproductive organs so that the gametes (eggs and sperm) are bathed in nutrient rich blood during maturation. Better quality eggs and sperm and a thicker, nutrient rich endometrial lining lead to better quality embryos and a healthy implantation reducing the possibility of early miscarriage.
Chinese medicine is able to help with many of the causes of miscarriage including: immune & autoimmunity, thyroid imbalances, hormone deficiencies and imbalances, egg and sperm quality issues, unexplained recurrent pregnancy loss, thrombophilias and some infections. We help immune, autoimmune, infections, and thyroid imbalances by reducing inflammation. In the case of hormone deficiencies or imbalances, acupuncture can help strengthen the quality of the follicles so they are better at producing progesterone after ovulation. Increasing blood flow to the uterus and balancing hormones helps to thicken the uterine lining as well.
Herbal medicine is used in most cases, especially in the months leading up to trying to conceive to enrich and build the blood or to increase good quality cervical fluid if it is lacking.
Chinese medicine and western medicine can be combined on some cases for the patients benefit. In the cases of more than three miscarriages or infections, it is best to be working with a reproductive endocrinologist or OBGYN along with receiving Chinese medical care.
