Fertility and IVF support
Acupuncture is thought to aid fertility by being able to regulate the menstrual cycle and promote regular ovulation; improve the functions of ovaries; enhance the vitality of sperm; increase the thickness of the uterine lining so to encourage successful implantation; reduce the chance of miscarriage.
I will take your case history and will work around your menstrual cycle. I will advise on nutrition according to the principle of Chinese Medicine.
I provide support during IVF and I see patients at any stage in the process.
In order to achieve the greatest benefit from acupuncture when combining it with IVF, it is recommended to start before the IVF cycle to help rectify any imbalances.
Acupuncture during the IVF cycle also helps to relieve the possible side-effects of the drugs.
Acupuncture on the day of the Embryo Transfer has been shown to increase significantly the rate of pregnancy. I will also show you how to self-treat at home, until the pregnancy test, to encourage implantation.
I make myself as available as I can to respond to your needs during your IVF cycle.
