Working with Dr. Schwerte, my husband and I conceived our first child in a matter of months! Through acupuncture, Dr. Schwerte eased my pre-conception anxieties and assisted my body to conceive and carry.

Fertility Acupuncture in San Francisco

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are the most commonly prescribed complementary therapies in Western Fertility Treatment today. Empirical evidence and clinical experience have led to a strong support among leading fertility endocrinologists and specialists for this millennia-old medicine worldwide.  Acupuncture can be seen as an alternative way of treating fertility problems or as a complementary therapy to modern fertility treatments in both women and men.

Acupuncture proves to be especially beneficial as a complementary form of therapy for women undergoing other fertility treatments. Studies have shown that acupuncture can increase the success rate of pregnancy in women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) to up to 60%.

According to a German study completed in 2002 women who underwent IVF and received acupuncture had a 42.5% success rate compared to a 26.3% success rate amongst women who received IVF without additional acupuncture treatments. A more recent American study involving 114 participants showed that 51% of all women who received acupuncture and IVF treatments became pregnant versus only 36% of the women who received IVF alone. Deeper analysis of this study revealed that, while 8% of the women in the acupuncture group miscarried, the rate of miscarriage in the IVF-only group was 20%. Women who received acupuncture also had lower rates of ectopic pregnancies.

Both my partner and I can’t say enough about Dr. Schwerte and his compassion and caring nature. After only three months with acupuncture I was pregnant!

Dr. Schwerte’s care for me was exceptional. His determination was an answer to many of my “whys.” Due to his diagnosis, treatment, and diet recommendations I’m beginning to feel whole again.

I went to see Dr. Schwerte for infertility after seeing about 6 other previous acupuncturists! He is one in a million and would recommend him OVER any other acupuncturist I have met.
