Fertility Support for IVF/IUI
Acupuncture has been shown to improve IVF success by 50% and is recommended by fertility clinics nationwide. Acupuncture works to increase success rates of the IVF cycle by increasing blood flow to the ovaries during the stimulation phase of IVF and by improving the effectiveness of the drugs given. It also relaxes the uterus and addresses uterine spasm after embryo transfer. Acupuncture treatments also reduce stress, calm anxiety, and balance the nervous system which increases the likelihood that implantation will be successful. Men also benefit from acupuncture as it can have a positive impact on semen quality. Alongside Chinese herbal medicine, we are able to improve semen count, motility, and morphology and to correct hormonal imbalances that are commonly seen in male infertility.
