Fertility & Hormones Q&A

Why is pregnancy easier for some than others?

The ease of pregnancy can vary widely among individuals due to a multitude of influences, such as:

  • Overall health and wellness
  • Age
  • Reproductive health
  • Genetics
  • Lifestyle choices
  • Stress levels
  • Underlying medical conditions

Factors like regular ovulatory cycles, hormonal balance, and optimal reproductive organ function can contribute to increased fertility and a smoother conception process for some.

What are my treatment options for infertility? 

At NYC Acupuncture + Wellness, Dr. Wu provides a range of treatment options for infertility, integrating traditional medical techniques from China, Japan, and Korea with Western medicine:


Traditional Chinese acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on your body to regulate the flow of qi (energy) and promote balance. Acupuncture may help improve reproductive function, regulate menstrual cycles, and enhance fertility in both men and women.

Herbal medicine

Dr. Wu may prescribe traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Korean herbal remedies to address underlying imbalances or deficiencies contributing to infertility. These herbal formulas are tailored to your specific needs and may help regulate hormonal levels, improve egg quality, and enhance sperm production.

Assisted reproductive technologies (ART)

In conjunction with traditional techniques, modern Western medical interventions, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), intrauterine insemination (IUI), and fertility medications, may be used to overcome infertility barriers and assist with conception. Dr. Ting can provide supportive treatments for your body while preparing for your IVF and IUI.

What care can I receive during a pregnancy?

During pregnancy, you can rely on Dr. Wu for comprehensive medical care to ensure the health and well-being of both you and the developing fetus. 

East medicine interventions may be provided as needed to manage conditions such as gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, or other pregnancy-related issues, with the ultimate goal of supporting a healthy pregnancy and ensuring the best possible outcomes for you and your baby.
