It is understandable when you first face the news of infertility, to start figuring out what to do next. One of the options moving forward in your infertility journey could be the assistance of medical technology. The next steps with that option could be preparing you and your partner for various appointments and tests with your fertility specialist. And thereafter, you would be informed of options that best fit your needs.
That could look like using a combination of assisted reproductive technologies and/or reproductive treatments. For example, having a procedure performed by your fertility doctor to examine your uterus and then preparing for artificial insemination.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, it is okay. You are not alone. You have options as well as a dedicated team and fertility specialist that will be by your side. There are also a few unexpected ways to ease the journey.
A Healing-Oriented Perspective
With integrative medicine, your entire person is taken into account for healing-oriented therapies. This means emphasizing the therapeutic relationship between you and your fertility doctor to address specifics such as spasmed tubes, as well as adjustments to your lifestyle as a whole. These adjustments could help you cope with treatments you might need as well as increase your chances of conception.
A couple of unexpected ways you could ease your journey and minimize stress levels and any other consequences of life’s habits could be addressed with acupuncture treatments and music therapy.
Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to encourage its functioning. This is achieved through acupuncture points stimulating the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. The relief is achieved by inserting disposable solid needles, (with the option of applying heat or electrical stimulation) to multiple acupuncture points. Acupuncture could help address problems that affect your infertility and potentially increase your chances of conception.
An immediate question that comes to mind to most is. “Will this hurt?” You need not worry as it just depends. Every practitioner has their own style and unique as you are, you might feel it differently than the next person. The most common feelings however just tend to be minimal sensations (if any at all) depending on the point of insertion.
Once the needles are set in place, that means endorphins are being released and you’ll be naturally relaxed.

For many, music sets the tone for how we start our day and it can reflect how we’re feeling. Imagine, in a movie when there is a swell of notes just before the protagonist makes a big decision that changes everything. Your emotional investment is dictated by the sounds that accompany the action on the screen. Music affects us physically, emotionally and mentally and many clinics have research proving the benefits of music therapy.
In a medical setting, music therapists specialize in working with pain and stress management. It ultimately reduces stress, pain, and promotes relaxation during treatments and procedures.
