IVF and Acupuncture
The IVF procedure can overcome many issues that cause infertility and is widely used for the treatment of infertility of known and unknown causes. Due to the relatively low success rate of IVF per cycle and the emotional impact it has, acupuncture has gained popularity as an adjunctive therapy that can potentially enhance the success of IVF treatment.
For best results, we recommend to start your treatments early in order to regulate and boost your system before the hormonal preparation stages begin. It is generally recommended having your acupuncture sessions twice a week to prepare you for the embryo transfer and support the implantation. It is vital to have acupuncture between 24 and 48 hrs before and after the actual embryo transfer.
