acupuncture & ivf/iui
Numerous studies have reported positive findings in combining acupuncture with in vitro fertility treatments. Our clinic supports IVF through weekly treatments in our office starting [preferably] a minimum of 3 months prior to the planned IVF cycle. During this period, treatments are focused on increasing blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, thickening the uterine lining to encourage implantation, and improving hormone levels. We will work with you to regulate your cycle and to decrease any menstrual symptoms you may experience. Additionally, women often see an improvement in stress and sleep.
As your procedure date approaches, you should plan to come in within 24 hours before your scheduled retrieval and transfer/IUI, as well as within 24 hours post-transfer. The focus of these treatments is to lower stress, increase blood flow, decrease uterine contractions, and lessen the chance of miscarriage. You may wish to continue treatments following IVF/IUI to regulate stress and hormones, and to encourage a healthy pregnancy. Set up your free consultation today to get started!
