San Francisco Fertility Acupuncture

Acupuncture for fertility can optimize fertility for both women and men, and help to ensure a smooth and healthy pregnancy.

Blue Ova constructs customized fertility treatment plans for every stage of a woman’s journey toward motherhood. Whether women are trying to conceive naturally, or via IUI or IVF, we consider the unique constitution of each patient to develop treatment plans that foster success.

We use fertility acupuncture, herbal medicine, stress reduction, and diet to effectively treat a whole range of fertility issues, including:

  • Acupuncture for PCOS

  • Acupuncture for Endometriosis

  • Acupuncture for IVF Support

  • Acupuncture for IUI Support

  • Acupuncture for Decreased Ovarian Reserve

  • Acupuncture for Recurrent Pregnancy Loss

  • Acupuncture for Elevated FSH

  • Acupuncture for Egg Quality

  • Acupuncture for Fybrocystic Breasts

  • Acupuncture for Libido

  • Acupuncture for Male Infertility


Our natural fertility support program is designed to bring your body back into balance. Although our focus is on the reproductive system, we look at the body as a whole. The health and well-being of your entire body is important when preparing to conceive naturally.

Optimizing fertility and improving pregnancy success is different for each couple.  We look at each couple individually and develop a specialized treatment plan to increase the chances of conception and healthy full-term pregnancy.  Our goal is to uncover and enhance your fertility potential that may be blocked or disrupted by many factors. 

We recommend treatment starting at least three months before conception takes place as it takes about three months for an egg to mature. During that time it is important to create healthy follicles and better egg quality; balance hormones and regulate your menstrual cycle; and get your body as a whole in the best condition for conception to occur.


Success of IVF and IUI depend just as much on the balanced state of your body as does success without these assisted reproductive techniques. Scientific studies have shown again and again that acupuncture can increase IVF and IUI success rates dramatically. A review combining the results of seven previous studies has found that IVF with acupuncture (compared to IVF alone) increases the chances of having an ongoing pregnancy (beyond 12 weeks from gestation) by 87%, and nearly doubles the chance of a successful live birth.
