Gynaecology & Pregnancy

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can successfully treat many gynaecological problems.

For example: menstruation problems like PMS; pain and heavy blood loss; complaints during pregnancy and before and after the delivery. Even if you have problems getting pregnant, TCM can be a great support.

Women’s ailments

Gynaecological disorders sometimes are referred to as ‘’women’s ailments’’, making it sound like affectation. However, these problems can severely disrupt one’s daily life. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can successfully treat complaints during pregnancy, menstruation and menopause, such as mood swings, headaches and back pains.

Help to get pregnant

Unfortunately, not every woman gets pregnant without any problems. TCM can help you to get pregnant spontaneously by stimulating the ovulation, helping improve the quality of sperm and egg cells and by stimulating the implantation.

Furthermore, in certain situations a combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help prevent a miscarriage. If you are in the process of IVF, acupuncture can be a valuable support and help reduce the negative effects of hormone stimulation. Scientific research shows that acupuncture, applied around the time of replacement of the egg cells, improves chances of a successful implantation.

Before and after delivery

Acupuncture, if necessary in combination with Chinese herbal medicine, can facilitate the delivery and relieve complaints before, during and after labour. Acupuncture can, for instance, help turn around a breech presentation and initiate the delivery. After delivery, TCM can stimulate breast feeding, prevent an imminent breast inflammation and support the treatment of post natal depression.
