Planning or Planning to Avoid Pregnancy with Acupuncture

Acupuncture is not “birth control” but it can help you naturally regulate your menstrual cycle so you know when you’re fertile. If you have a 28 day cycle, you should ovulate around day 14. You are fertile 5 days before ovulation and 1 day after ovulation. If your cycle is longer or shorter, or you don’t ovulate on day 14, these numbers will be off. With acupuncture, herbal medicine, and BBT tracking (or OPK strips) we can help figure out your fertile windows. During these times, you can use whatever other methods you choose to prevent pregnancy. We need to start teaching girls and boys about their bodies from a young age. Despite what we are told as teenagers, you can’t get pregnant anytime. Take charge of your fertility and your health with acupuncture!
