Our acupuncture for IVF programs borrow from the effective techniques identified by systemic reviews to maximise outcomes for couples who come in to see us.
We focus on preparing our clients for IVF or ICSI, and supporting them during upcoming rounds.
Who comes to see us?
Usually, we see two types of couples:
- those who have already been through many IVF or IUI cycles and are now seeking additional support
- others who have not yet started ART and are contemplating combining their rounds with acupuncture.
Sometimes, we see people only on their embryo transfer day.
When’s best to start acupuncture for IVF?
We usually see the best results when couples see us once or twice a week for at least three months before they start IVF or IUI.
This helps to maximise their health before ART even begins.
Your experience with us will involve acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and dietary and lifestyle advice.
Please remember that for men, sperm take up to 120 days to develop. So at least three months of acupuncture is recommended.
Also, three months of acupuncture allows us to observe subtle changes in a woman’s menstrual cycle. Chinese medicine for fertility holds great importance to these subtle changes.
If you can’t wait three months, please contact us as soon as you can so we can start helping you.
After IVF and IUI rounds, we see our clients once or twice a week while they are waiting on results.
Also, we see them weekly in the initial stages of pregnancy.
