Acupuncture and TCM to Prevent Ectopic Pregnancy

Part of the holistic treatment of Acupuncture and Chinese medicine will help to prevent an ectopic pregnancy from occurring. However, if you have already experienced an ectopic pregnancy, it is important to address the issues concerning why it occurred and to treat the cause to try and ensure it does not recur.

Typically, ectopic pregnancies can occur for several reasons:

  • Obstructions or blockages in the fallopian tube, possibly due to previous infection

  • Inadequate fluid secretion which thus hinders the movement of the embryo through the tube into the uterus

  • Tension in the muscles of the tube.

Certainly, if you have a history of infection in the fallopian tube(s) it is very important that you undergo a laparoscopy or HSG test to check if indeed there is any obstruction.

If obstructions are present, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine is very effective at flushing and clearing the tubes; if the tubes are clear, and there is more of an “unexplainable” reason for the ectopic, acupuncture and Chinese medicine treatment would involve regulating Qi and Blood flow and ensuring the Yin body fluids are abundant to encourage the natural movement of the embryo through the tubes into the uterus.

If you have a history of ectopic pregnancy and are looking to try for another conception, start some treatment as soon as possible to address the cause before trying to conceive again.
