The stages of Acupuncture during IVF

  • Preparing for IVF

    We recommend an assessment well in advance  so you can start the process ready for your IVF cycle. Research indicates that the effectiveness of acupuncture may be dose dependent, that is a sufficient number of treatments over an adequate period of time. Source: British Acupuncture Council

  • Stimulation Phase

    Each person's treatment cycle is individual to their needs, but we usually see patients weekly during this phase of the cycle.

  • Embryo Transfer

    We work with our patients throughout the whole IVF cycle including embryo transfer. 

  • Two Week Wait

    This can be a challenging time and we offer patients a treatment to help with relaxation.

Tess’s story

I have been suffering from severe endometriosis and having IVF. The Acupuncture has helped enormously with my stress levels and I feel it has helped regulate my periods as they were all out of sync due to the medication. Colette is really warm and makes every session relaxing. I highly recommend Colette as an Acupuncturist.
