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
  • Boost egg quality and endometrial thickness
  • 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

“I am so thankful that I came to Margo at Wild Rose Medicine last year as she has truly changed my life for the better. We struggled with infertility, were going through IVF and had multiple unexplained miscarriages over the years. I started seeing Margo weekly as part of my IVF treatment leading to an egg retrieval and after a few months we had a successful retrieval resulting in a great quality embryo which led to a successful embryo transfer (again with regular sessions with Margo leading up to it) and now I am so grateful to say this baby stuck and I am almost 20 weeks pregnant! I truly believe this success is directly related to my treatments with her – that is the only part of our protocol that changed between multiple losses and unsuccessful retrievals and our success.

On top of the the successful outcome we got, I truly looked forward to my sessions every week. They are so relaxing, she is incredibly knowledgeable and I always felt like I was getting the best care and treatment possible (and some of the best naps ever)!

I cannot recommend Margo/Wild Rose any more highly – she is the absolute best!! – A.M.

“I sought out Dr. Margo after being diagnosed with endometriosis and learning that IVF would be our best shot at having a baby (pun intended for all you IVF warriors our there). I was doing everything in my power to prepare my body to become pregnant, and receiving acupuncture treatments with Dr. Margo was a key part. We were very fortunate that we became pregnant on our first round of IVF, and I believe that taking a holistic approach attributed to that success. I am truly thankful for all that Dr. Margo did for me both before and during my pregnancy. We are now the proud parents of a very happy 11 month old, and I know that Dr. Margo will be an important part in growing our family in the future.” M.Y.
