Can Hypnotherapy Help with Male and Female Fertility

It’s a question I get asked often. “Can hypnotherapy help with fertility?” Infertility can be deeply upsetting not to mention incredibly stressful for those trying to conceive.

If someone is unable to fall pregnant naturally after one year of trying (earlier if the female is over 35) it will be deemed as infertility. According to the World Health Organisation, 8-10% of couples around the world experience infertility. In the UK alone, one in seven couples has difficulty conceiving.

What are the causes of infertility? Of course, many issues can affect fertility, both physiological and psychological which can afflict men and women alike. Common physiological causes of infertility in women include lack of regular ovulation (the monthly release of an egg), blockage of the fallopian tubes and endometriosis. In men, the most common cause is the poor quality of semen and then there are the 25% of couples, where the cause is unexplained.

Depression, stress, and anxiety significantly affect infertile people and so it stands to reason that there is also a psychological component to fertility treatment, and it should not be overlooked.

Can hypnotherapy help with fertility?

Applications of clinical hypnosis for IVF and fertility are wide-ranging, for instance;

Clients learn how to get into a deep state of relaxation quickly and easily to reduce stress which is often associated with failure to conceive. It’s used to help prepare mentally, emotionally and physically for IVF treatment. This preparation can range from positive lifestyle changes, and changing limiting beliefs to eliminating fears and phobias.
