IVF/IUI Support

Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Support

Our modern world has made significant advances in the realm of reproductive medicine. There are many situations where natural conception is not possible. Thankfully, intra-uterine insemination (IUI) and in-vitro fertilization (IVF) help these individuals to create a family.

IUI and IVF are helpful for same sex couples and those unable to conceive due to blocked, damaged or absent fallopian tubes, genetic disorders, advanced maternal age, premature ovarian failure, male and female unexplained infertility and situations where one is unresponsive to other treatments for fibroids, cysts and ovulatory disorders.

IVF/IUI Acupuncture

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine has been clinically proven to increase chances of success with both IVF and IUI. In fact, one study documented clinical pregnancies in 34 of 80 patients (42.5%) in a group who received  acupuncture before and after FET (fetal embryo transfer), whereas pregnancy rate was only 26.3% (21 out of 80 patients) in the control group, which did not receive acupuncture.

Acupuncture can help with each specific phase of ART from prepping for egg retrieval to fetal embryo transfer treatments to implantation support.

Acupuncture helps:

  • Increase blood flow to the uterus
  • Decrease side effects of pharmaceutical drugs
  • Improve sperm quality and motility
  • Decrease chances of miscarriage
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Improve success rates for IVF and IUI patients
