Acupuncture for IVF
Before you start: setting the stage
The best time to start Acupuncture is 3 months prior to an IVF. 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.
Benefits of getting acupuncture & herbs weekly before IVF:
-improved uterine lining
-improved egg quality
-lowered stress level
Acupuncture prior to a retrieval cycle can help in the following ways:
-improve your egg quality
-improve your response in case of low ovarian reserve
-offset the side effects of the stimulant medications
-help with ovarian hyper-stimulation syndrome (OHSS)
Studies have showed that getting acupuncture the day before and the day after your transfer can improve pregnancy rates by 65%.
However, the live birth rate is even better if you have been coming for a while before you started the IVF process.
You will receive a treatment either the day before transfer, or the day of right before the procedure, and the day after. We recommend weekly sessions until the pregnancy test result and throughout. pregnancy too!
