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. Hijama therapy can help by removing the problems in the reproductive systems of both, men and women, that eventually lead up to infertility.
Hijama therapy is often used in conjunction with acupuncture. Your therapist will recommend that you take the procedure in the mornings when the life energy or chi is stronger. You will also be requested to continue the treatment regularly for at least 3 months, by way of a preset schedule.

Luteal Phase: The sessions begin on day 17 of the cycle and are continued through day 28.
