IVF / IUI Support Program

Fertility Core Treatments

IVF/IUI Procedure + Acupuncture

Many couples undergoing IVF treatments experience enormous level of stress and frustration. These surgical based procedures are time consuming, physically demanding, financially costly and emotionally taxing. And yet, the outcome of infertility treatment is unpredictable. Therefore, it is important to explore natural therapies that can help you prepare for your IVF fertility journey.
When it comes to getting pregnant, ancient world techniques may be just what today's high-tech reproductive specialists will order. Think of this time as "preparing of the soil before the seeds are planted". Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine are effective natural remedies that bring multiple benefits.

Will Acupuncture Work For You?

Acupuncture and TCM treatments are best to start well ahead of the IVF cycle. These holistic treatments can be planned 3 months before the start of your IVF medication to give enough time for your body to make positive changes. TCM treatments commonly combine the use of acupuncture, herbal medicine, and complemented with special pre-embryo transfer and post-embryo transfer acupuncture sessions.

Explain the Unexplained

Unexplained infertility is a catch-all condition which the medical doctors cannot seem to find anything physically wrong with either the male or the female after dozens of tests and analysis of fallopian tubes, uterus, and semen and so on. Fortunately, in Traditional Chinese Medicine discipline, the treatment approach of infertility is very different from the western medicine. What seems to be unexplained in the laboratory tests and ultrasounds may well be explained. Couples who are diagnosed with unexplained infertility often find themselves conceive successfully after receiving TCM and acupuncture treatments along with the recommended lifestyle and diet changes.

Getting to Success

Several studies published in western medical journals within the last few years have demonstrated that acupuncture can increase the success rate of IVF procedures significantly. Given the high financial and emotional costs associated with this procedure, many patients come to us seeking to maximize their chances. We operate independently without affiliating to any fertility clinic, yet, we are here to work with the patient procedure schedules.
