Acupuncture before and during the medication phase of IVF

Acupuncture-Pregnancy-337
This treatment schedule is based on protocols used in clinical trials which demonstrate increased blood supply to uterus and ovaries (reference) and a beneficial regulation of hormones which may be important to follicle development and implantation (reference). Recent analyses of the benefit of IVF patients receiving acupuncture have shown that patients who have treatment before and during the stimulation and implantation phases benefit more than those that have acupuncture only on the day of embryo transfer (reference)
Schedule: 2 treatments per week for 4 weeks (optimal) plus treatment at time of embryo transfer.
