For those struggling to conceive, it is important to consult your GP to check for any underlying issues before seeking Hijama. It is recommended to avoid performing Hijama when a female is on her fertile days and when ovulating, also known as the ‘fertile window’. This window will vary depending on the individual’s cycle.
After ovulation has occurred, there is a chance that conception has taken place but may not show up on a home pregnancy test until 10-14 days later. Wait until the regular menstrual cycle has started before performing Hijama but always ask the patient to take a home pregnancy test before the Hijama.
The optimal time to perform Hijama for fertility is from the first day of the menstrual cycle until the fertile days start (allow time for recovery from Hijama, before the fertile window). Along with a Hijama treatment plan, advise the client to monitor general diet and lifestyle choices and make necessary changes.
