Supporting your health and boosting your chances
IVF can be a stressful process. Whether you are undertaking a fresh cycle, frozen cycle, using a donor egg or donor sperm, whether it is your first cycle or more. The goal is to make a baby but often the focus becomes multiple appointments, blood tests, scans, injections, pessaries and the expense.
Rachael provides support throughout the IVF process and how you choose to manage it.
Acupuncture and IVF
Acupuncture is a great support treatment during an IVF cycle. More and more research is proving it increases blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, follicle development and embryo implantation and pregnancy success rates.
Acupuncture (and often Chinese herbs) is recommended a few months prior to beginning an IVF cycle, particularly if there are any female health issues with the menstrual cycle or diagnosed reproductive health issues such as PCOS, fibroids or thin menstrual lining.
If there are any male fertility or sperm issues, it’s also recommended men have treatment prior to the IVF cycle too. Ideally, getting regular treatments a couple of months before the IVF cycle is recommended.
