Acupuncture for IUI

At taproot, we have helped many patients go through rounds of IUI.

Acupuncture can help you better navigate the emotional roller coaster and the side effects caused by the medications.

Our fertility protocol is most effective with a minimum of 3 months of treatment before your procedure, although we can jump in to help at any part of your journey.

Before you start: setting the stage

The best time to start Acupuncture is 3 months prior to an IUI. During this time, regular acupuncture & herbs will allow your whole body to reach a healthier baseline to increase your chances. We will also offer lifestyle, supplements & nutrition insights.

If you are above 40 or suffer from conditions like PCOS, amenorrhea, thyroid imbalance or endometriosis, we might need more time.

Benefits of getting acupuncture & herbs weekly before IUI:

-regularized cycles

-improved uterine lining

-improved egg quality

-lowered stress level

Treatment protocol

We recommend 3 months of acupuncture once a week (once every other week minimum) with supplements & a personalized Chinese herb formula.

We encourage lifestyle changes and healthy nutrition habits so you can be the healthiest possible before the attempt.

We like to see both partners, especially 1 month before the IUI.

It usually takes 4-6 cycles of IUI to achieve pregnancy (read more here)
