IVF SUPPORT. BEFORE AND AFTER TRANSFERS.
IVF Support. Before and after transfers.
Acupuncture is safe and has no adverse side effects. Treatments work in conjunction with your IVF treatment and not only benefits your well being but also that of your baby. The acupuncture imparts a feeling of well-being and emotional stability during such a stressful time and can significantly increase your chances of a positive outcome. The benefits of acupuncture are not age related.
Acupuncture increases blood circulation to the ovaries and uterus and increase the capacity for conception. This improves embryo and egg quality and uterine environment to assist with implantation.
Research results are positive for women who want to use acupuncture during embryo transfer to increase success rates. Research has also shown positive results having acupuncture before and after transfer. Additional acupuncture 1 to 3 days after transfer potentially supports implantation and reduces stress. It is a must for calming the mind, maintaining energy and reinforcing positivity.
Prior to starting IVF:
Having acupuncture and Chinese herbs prior to beginning IVF can help prepare by regulating your cycle and assisting with ovulation. It is sometimes a good idea to have a preparatory course of treatment from 3 months prior to the IVF drug regime.
After receiving your positive pregnancy result it is advised to have weekly visits for acupuncture throughout your first trimester followed by monthly sessions up to week 35 and the weekly visits up to the birth.
