Acupuncture and IVF Go Hand in Hand

We know that going through fertility treatment is a big investment. Blending the latest research protocols with time-tested holistic medicine, our acupuncture program optimizes your chances of pregnancy while keeping you, as a whole person, at the center of our care.

The impact of three months

Increase your chances of becoming pregnant with our three-month acupuncture program before your fertility treatment cycle. Egg quality is often the single most common determinant of how successful a cycle is, especially for women over the age of 35 or who have diminished ovarian reserve or premature ovarian failure. The good news is that Chinese medicine has an approach to supporting egg quality. This is unique - western fertility treatments increase the amount of eggs a woman can ovulate in a given cycle, but does not address egg quality. Good egg quality is necessary to bring an egg through all the vital stages of conception to embryo development. It takes time to impact egg quality - at least three months or more.

If you are already in a treatment cycle, you can jump into acupuncture treatment at any time and still receive benefits. We tailor your treatments throughout the cycle with treatments on the day of transfer, around artificial insemination, and during the medication phase leading up to your cycle. It’s never too late to seek acupuncture alongside your western fertility treatment.

Freezing your eggs? We are here for you. The same principles applied to an IVF or IUI cycle are applied during your cycle. Schedule a free phone consultation to find out when the best time is to come in for our support.
