Acupuncture lowers FSH level to help you to get pregnant.

Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is a hormone produced in the brain that plays a crucial role in the development of follicles in the ovaries, leading to the production of estrogen and progesterone. When the ovaries are not functioning optimally, they fail to respond to the stimulation provided by FSH. In such cases, the brain compensates by increasing the production of FSH, thereby urging the ovaries to work harder. Consequently, the level of FSH in the body becomes elevated.

For women who desire to conceive, it is essential that their ovaries are functioning properly and producing eggs. A normal range of FSH levels indicates healthy ovarian function. Conversely, if FSH levels are low within the normal range, it signifies that the ovaries are functioning effectively.

Research suggests that acupuncture can be beneficial in improving ovarian function and reducing FSH levels. A systematic review was conducted to evaluate the existing evidence from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) on the effects of acupuncture in patients with primary ovarian insufficiency (POI), characterized by elevated FSH levels. The review included an analysis of eight selected RCTs.

The results of the systematic review revealed that acupuncture had a significant impact on lowering serum FSH levels. This finding provides evidence to support the claim that acupuncture can effectively improve ovarian function in individuals with elevated FSH levels.

In conclusion, FSH, produced in the brain, stimulates follicle development in the ovaries, leading to the production of estrogen and progesterone. If the ovaries are not functioning properly, they fail to respond to FSH stimulation, prompting the brain to increase FSH production. Elevated FSH levels indicate a need for the ovaries to work harder. For women who wish to conceive, it is crucial for their ovaries to be functioning adequately, as indicated by normal FSH levels. Acupuncture has been shown in a systematic review to improve ovarian function and lower FSH levels, providing a potential therapeutic option for individuals with primary ovarian insufficiency.
