Fertility and acupuncture
Tuesday, 6 March 2018
Had ectopic pregnancy, acupuncture can help.
It is recommended that you wait for at least 2-3 menstrual cycles before trying for another pregnancy though many women are not emotionally ready for another pregnancy so soon. The chances of having a successful pregnancy will depend on the underlying health of the fallopian tubes. There are about 50% risks of infertility after ectopic and 20% recurrent rate. In subsequent pregnancy the women should receive early evaluation to confirm that the pregnancy is in the uterus. It is hard to predict what the individual chance is for a successful pregnancy after the ectopic pregnancy surgery. Some research showed that about 65% of women achieved a successful pregnancy 18 months after having an ectopic pregnancy.
There is more chance to get ectopic pregnancy after IVF in women with thin endometrium
There is 1% chance of all naturally conceived pregnancy are ectopic. IVF and IUI increased the chance to have ectopic pregnancy to 2-5%. After embryos are transferred to the uterus, they have a greater chance of wandering around and implanting themselves in places where they are not supposed to be, such as the fallopian tubes. What is the risk facto of ectopic pregnancy after IVF? A study has shown that risk of ectopic pregnancy is linked to endometrial thickness. In this study a total of 6465 patients achieved a pregnancy in 8120 cycles via assisted reproduction technology. They found that Following IVF, the risk of ectopic pregnancy is 4-fold increased in women with an endometrial thickness of <9 mm compared with women with an endometrial thickness of >12 mm.
Do you know that acupuncture can help to improve the endometrial thickness by improving the blood flow to the uterus and balance the hormones?
Appendectomy increases the risk of ectopic pregnancy
Fallopian tube damage is responsible for one third of infertility cases. Ruptured appendicitis has been considered a risk factor in causing scarring, which can lead to infertility and/or ectopic pregnancy. Does appendectomy increase the risk of tubal infertility? A research studied recent data on this subject. They found that previous appendectomy is not associated with increased incidence of infertility in women. However this study found that appendectomy is significantly associated with an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy.
Compromised ovarian function after salpingectomy, acupuncture can help.
After salpingectomy, the ovarian function on the operation side could be compromised because of reduced blood circulation. A study involved in thirty-two patients with unilateral salpingectomy performed for ectopic pregnancy investigated this subject. In this study, ovarian function was assessed by antral follicle count, ovarian volume and ovarian stromal blood flow measured by three-dimensional (3D) power Doppler ultrasonography. Ovarian volume, antral follicle count and 3D power Doppler indices were comparable between the operated and the non-operated sides in the whole group and in the laparotomy group. The antral follicle count and 3D power Doppler indices were significantly reduced on the operated side in the laparoscopy group. It suggested that ovarian function seems to be impaired after laparoscopic unilateral salpingectomy at short-term.
Acupuncture could help the recovering of fallopian tubes by improving pelvic circulation, reducing inflammation and relaxing the tubes to be ready for next pregnancy. Also acupuncture can help to reduce stress in the women after pregnancy loss and surgery.
