In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Support

Why Acupuncture Works

According to several recent studies, acupuncture treatments can increase the success of IVF anywhere from 42% to 115% over IVF alone. Acupuncture is so helpful during IVF because it treats the underlying causes of fertility problems and increases your body’s ability to conceive and maintain a pregnancy naturally.

Once you are pregnant (congratulations!), acupuncture can help keep your pregnancy healthy and prevent miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy. Acupuncture is a natural and safe way of ensuring a healthy and gentle pregnancy.

Even if you are just beginning to think about trying IUI or IVF, Chinese medicine can begin to help pave the road to success.  The sooner you begin acupuncture treatment the more time we will have to enhance your egg quality, improve the thickness and smoothness of your uterine lining, and improve your chances of carrying a healthy fetus to term. Ideally, I would like you to begin treatment at least one month before you begin IVF.

If you have specific questions about IVF ad acupuncture please feel free to call me. I always make myself available for complimentary phone consultations.
