Do many acupuncturists really specialise in treating infertility?

More and more patients search acupuncturist who specialises in infertility treatment,Do those practitioners really know how to treat infertility?

A fertility specialist, or Reproductive Endocrinologist, is a medical doctor who has been specially trained in the complex issues that can contribute to infertility. In addition to being trained as an Obstetrician/Gynecologist which requires a four-year residency a fertility specialist must complete an additional two to three year fellowship in reproductive endocrinology. This fellowship training is highly specialized to focus on the diagnosis and treatment of infertility and female endocrinology.. A physician can become Board Certified in Reproductive Endocrinology by successfully completing the fellowship as well as written and oral examinations.

Currently in the Unites States, there are only about 1,000 Board Certified Reproductive Endocrinologists. Specifically for infertility related to males, Urologists with a sub-specialty in Andrology are the most qualified experts as they have often completed two-year fellowships and passed exams to become Board Certified in Andrology.

At moment, More and more practitioners of Chinese medicine are deciding to advertise infertility treatment as part of their practice. Some acupuncture practitioners might have great personalities but have professional skills,some might have terrible bed side manners but excel in their medical knowledge. The truth is, most acupuncturists receive very minimal training in treating infertility. In other word,there are no "infertlity specialist" among acupuncturists.When practitioner receiving phone calls from patients who were asking if he/she treated infertility. their answer almost: “Sure, I do".Buy the truth is that they haven't enough professional training and experiences in infertility treatment.In fact ,Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Herbs only have been proven to treat Painful Periods Endometriosis Polycystic Ovary Syndrom Miscarriage Poor sperm counts and hormonal imbalances.WARNING:acupuncture has not been proven to be effective when structural problems, such as an improperly formed epididymis or a blocked fallopian tube,avoid to unprofessional practitioner who never have correct diagnosis When trying to chose a practitioner who can help you with your fertility ,you should be encouraged to ask questions and understand your treatment plan. and if practitioners who give you promises that sound too good to be true ,if practitioners who list unreasonably high success rates,you shoud knew that most of that are not professional research conclusion. Take care! Don't waste your time and money for nothing.

Hi emma,

The acupuncture technology is the oldest and accurate technology to treat diseases. They are very much useful to treat many type of problem which is related to blood, heart, Sugar problem and many other problem that provide harm to our body. Another idea is to observed to solve this type of problem. If anybody wants to be beautiful then he can try spa and he would be beautiful after some time. So try it everybody.

Have a nice day.
