Acupuncture can support couples preparing for IVF and ARTs. We recommend starting treatment as soon as possible before commencing an IVF/IUI cycle, ideally 3-6 months. This is because research shows it takes this amount of time to impact both egg and sperm quality.
Acupuncture treatment is then given at specific times around an IVF/IUI cycle to optimise the chances of success.
IVF and ARTs support:
• Preparation before the start of IVF and IUI
• Supporting the body during a cycle
• Help relieve any anxiety and stress
• Pre and post embryo transfer
• During the two week wait
• During the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
