Acupuncture may boost IVF pregnancy rates by 65%

This was the conclusion of a recent study published in the British Medical Journal. Researchers from the University of Maryland School of Medicine in the US based their findings on the results of seven separate trials involving 1,366 women in four different countries.

How does acupuncture aid conception?

Amongst its many benefits acupuncture has been shown to

  • reduce the stress response to IVF
  • strengthen immunity
  • enhance the development of healthy eggs
  • facilitate embryo implantation by increasing the blood flow to the womb and thickening the uterus lining
 I had a few treatments with Ian and to our greatest joy I am now 14 weeks pregnant! . . . being relaxed and positive is a major part of it.

Acupuncture treatment for fertility

We start by exploring together the physical and emotional wellbeing of both partners. General energy levels, diet and sleep patterns, body temperature, stress, circulation these are just some of the factors that affect your chances of success.

I then propose an acupuncture regime designed specifically for you, which may include dietary recommendations, relaxation techniques or an exercise programme. This is a team effort, however and you have an active say in your treatment. You remain in control.

 We suspect that without Ian's help we would still be childless. It has been an incredible journey.

Length of treatment

Ideally I like to meet you 6-8 weeks before your IVF begins. However, it's never too late and I can treat couples up to a few days before egg collection.

Many clients continue with treatment after conception. Having experienced the benefits of acupuncture, they appreciate its beneficial effects in continuing to promote and maintain the health and wellbeing of both mother and child.
