How long will it take for acupuncture to get me pregnant?
It takes around 3-4 months for acupuncture to improve fertility enough for natural conception to take place.
Natural conception can be quicker if changes are made to a person's lifestyle and diet or if Chinese fertility herbs are used.
During your acupuncture treatment, you will notice a gradual improvement in your menstrual cycle and a reduction in levels of stress and anxiety. These, together with improved energy levels and better sleep will help natural conception take place.
How can I increase my chances of getting pregnant?
You can increase your chances of getting pregnant by having unprotected sex a few days before ovulation.
When trying for a baby it's important to know your fertile time. When a woman starts to have her cervical mucus (egg white) around 14 days into her menstrual cycle, you should have sex every day for 3-4 days.

Women can improve their chances of getting pregnant by stop smoking, drinking alcohol, coffee and eating more protein and omega 3 rich foods (not from cod liver oil).
