Acupuncture, Fertility & IVF
Having acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine prior to starting IVF can help prepare you to get in good shape by regulating the cycle and promoting ovulation.
It is often a good idea to have a preparatory course of treatment for 3 months prior
to an IVF regime. During the stimulation phase of IVF it is recommended no herbs be taken but acupuncture is appropriate and completely safe. The acupuncture can help reduce any side effects of the medications as well as improve follicle stimulation, calm nerves and reduce stress.
