We have supported many patients looking to conceive with assisted reproductive techniques, including: IVF, IUI, Chlomid and ICSI.
There is a lot of scientific evidence in support of Acupuncture alongside IVF to maximise chances of success. The following are a few studies:
A systematic review in the British Medical Journal concluded that using acupuncture alongside IVF significantly improved clinical pregnancy rates. This study involved giving acupuncture shortly before and after embryo transfer.
The Homerton Hospital London conducted a study in 2016 and concluded that Acupuncture doubled birth rates.
Our Acupuncture and IVF Programme
We encourage our patients to have acupuncture for a 2 – 3 month period, to prepare for an IVF cycle. Please call 0208 368 1130 for more information
It is recommended to have weekly acupuncture from the first day of medication through to embryo transfer. We used the most up to date protocols treating each person as an individual to manage side effects and obtain the best possible treatment outcome.
Acupuncture After Egg Collection
IVF patients are recommended to have an acupuncture treatment after egg collection, to reduce any local tissue trauma or bleeding, and help prepare a calm environment for the arrival of an embryo.
Acupuncture and Embryo Transfer (or Frozen Embryo Transfer)
We recommend a fertility acupuncture session before embryo transfer and after embryo transfer to improve pregnancy rates. Ideally, this is recommended on the same day as close to your embryo transfer appointment.
This protocol is the same for frozen embryo transfers (FET).
Acupuncture and The Two Week Wait
We recommend acupuncture during the two week period before you take a pregnancy test. The first treatment is to support implantation.
The second treatment during the two week wait is to support you emotionally, to ease anxiety and promote relaxation.
