Medically, infertility is defined as the inability to conceive a child even after the couple has had unprotected intercourse for a year. It can also be defined as the inability of a woman to deliver a live, healthy baby. Cupping therapy can help by removing the problems in the reproductive systems of both, men and women, that eventually lead up to infertility.

Time Frames Targeted for Cupping

  1. Stimulation: This is achieved by conducting the treatment from the day 5 of the menstrual cycle through day 11.
  2. Ovulation: The treatment is given from day 12 of the cycle through day 16 when ovulation takes place.
  3. Luteal Phase: The sessions begin on day 17 of the cycle and are continued through day 28.

    How Cupping Helps Female Infertility

    As explained above, cupping therapy can help by healing problems in the reproductive systems that can be the cause of infertility. These are some of the possible effects of the therapy:

    • Induces ovulation and helps when women do not ovulate or have anovulatory cycles
    • Cures imbalances of the thyroid gland
    • Removes blockages and inflammation in the fallopian tubes
    • Helps remove defects in the luteal phase
    • Cures endometriosis or problems where the lining of the uterus forms outside of it
    • Helps with hirsutism when hormone imbalances result in the woman having excessive hair on the face and body
    • Balances the hormones in the body when imbalances cause the formation of cysts in the ovaries, also called Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
    • Help with regulating menstruation
    • Helps with painful menstruation and cramps

    How Cupping Helps Male Infertility

    Cupping therapy can be effective in helping men also. This is how:

    • Improves the quality of sperm produced
    • Helps with problems with the prostrate
    • Cures infections in the genital tract
    • Cures inflammation of the veins in the scrotum
    • Assists with erectile dysfunction
