IVF SUPPORT

Understanding the Importance of Timing:

Timing is critical in fertility treatment. The process of egg maturation begins 90 days before ovulation, underscoring the necessity of preparing your body well in advance of assisted reproductive therapy. Our approach involves implementing dietary, lifestyle, and exercise adjustments to establish a foundation for optimal fertility health.

 

Customized Acupuncture Treatment:

Our acupuncture treatments are personalized to address your unique circumstances. Whether you're preparing for IVF, undergoing the procedure, or seeking support during any phase of the cycle, our experienced practitioners will tailor the treatment plan to suit your individual needs.

 

IVF Support Protocols:

1. Acupuncture Before and During IVF Medication Phase:

  • Based on clinical trial protocols, these treatments aim to enhance blood supply to the uterus and ovaries, promoting hormonal regulation crucial for follicle development and implantation.

  • Schedule: 2 treatments per week for 4 weeks, with an additional treatment at the time of embryo transfer.
     

2. Acupuncture on the Day of Embryo Transfer:

  • Clinical trials have shown increased pregnancy rates, particularly for individuals with lower expected success rates.
