Acupuncture and IVF

Acupuncture is an ancient practice that originated in China over 2000 years ago. It involves the insertion of fine, sterile and painless needles into specific points on the body to stimulate healing and balance. While acupuncture is often associated with the treatment of pain, it has also been shown to be a highly effective adjunct therapy for in vitro fertilization (IVF).

IVF is a type of assisted reproductive technology (ART) that involves fertilizing an egg with sperm outside of the body and then transferring the resulting embryo back into the uterus. While IVF can be successful, it can also be a stressful and emotionally challenging process for couples.

This is where acupuncture comes in, as it can help reduce stress and anxiety while also supporting overall well-being. Acupuncture, however, does much more for fertility than stress reduction. Read on…

Acupuncture and IVF Support – How Does it Work?

Acupuncture works by stimulating the flow of energy (or “Qi”) in the body. According to traditional Chinese medicine, Qi flows through a network of channels or meridians in the body. When this flow is disrupted, it can lead to pain, illness, and other health issues. Acupuncture helps to restore balance and flow by targeting specific points on these meridians.

When it comes to IVF, acupuncture can help in a number of ways aside from reducing stress and anxiety. Firstly, it can help regulate hormones and balance the menstrual cycle, facilitating ovulation. Secondly, it can improve blood flow to the uterus and its lining, which can increase the chances of a successful implantation. Thirdly, and very importantly, acupuncture can help improve blood flow to the ovaries, thus enhancing the quality and quantity of your eggs, which can increase the chances of a successful pregnancy by improving the grade of your embryo.
