Acupuncture offers an effective fertility IVF support. At Absolute Holistic Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia, we offer acupuncture IVF support and we have enjoyed many successes over the years. This section outlines acupuncture supports to fertility IVF procedures.
How They Work
For thousands of years, Acupuncture has been used to optimize the fertility of women. This treatment provides many patients with the relief of becoming more fertile. Acupuncture has been used to treat patients with infertility with a series of treatments that use stimulation to increase the blood flow to the uterus and pelvic cavity. This can assist to increase pregnancy rates. Here are a few important things to know about Acupuncture and IVF:
- Enhances your chances of full-term births and implantation
- Lessen the amount of stress and assist in relaxation throughout the IVF procedure.
- Reduces symptoms associated with ART treatment.
Acupuncture helps with the response rate of medication, the increase in the amount of eggs and healthier eggs, along with higher pregnancy rates.
Acupuncture performed before and during IVF increases blood flow to the uterus and ovaries. The treatment regulates fertility.
Acupuncture Before and During the Medication Phase of IVF
Acupuncture regulates fertility hormones, which may contribute to follicle development and increased implantation.
With acupuncture, the procedure allows the patient’s adrenal glands to calm down, as the procedure also releases tension, improves sleep quality and makes people feel energetic. It can also internally help the blood flow in a woman’s abdomen area.
When and How Often to Get an Acupuncture Treatment?
It is important to receive acupuncture treatments before and after the embryo transfer. Most researches suggest that it is best to receive acupuncture twice a week for eight sessions. This results in a release of stress and calms down the abdomen.
One month before IVF, the patient should prepare for the treatment. Generally, patients should come twice a week for one month.
Situations like low ovarian reserve, Endometriosis, Luteal Phase Defect, or other complicated cases, patients should come in for three months of acupuncture to prepare for the IVF treatment.
Acupuncture optimizes the chances of conception by accurately correcting and adjusting changes in the body. This allows the woman’s body to be placed back into balance. The treatment adjusts levels of stress hormones Cortisol and Prolactin during the stimulation phase of IVF.
How Can Acupuncture Treatments Assist Infertility?
Acupuncture has had a successful rate in preventing miscarriages and infertility. Stimulated acupuncture points relax the uterus in an effort to create better blood perfusion and more energy into the uterus. Acupuncture can improve the uterus’s ability to accept an embryo, regulate the endocrine system, and calm the stress levels.
Stress and Infertility
The hormones from stress can impact the reproductive system and every other organ and system in your body. We know that women who are coping with fertility problems and undergoing IVF experience major anxiety and chronic stress.
Acupuncture can greatly reduce the stress and anxiety and calms down the adrenals so the blood can go to the ovaries and uterus more.
A higher chance of pregnancy stems from a better prepared uterus and ovaries.
Acupuncture and Herbs are used to treat the woman’s overall health condition. These imbalances can be caused by excess, deficiency, or stagnation of energy. All Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments for infertility are based upon restoring balance and health to these systems and vital substances. Based on the nature of the infertility disorder, the treatment is designed in accordance with the woman’s individual menstrual cycle.
Male infertility is mainly due to low sperm count, disorders of sperm shape and/or mobility, or other immune factors. In Traditional Chinese Medicine it is common practice to treat the female and the male simultaneously to improve their overall fertility. Acupuncture will greatly increase the success rate for fertility treatments. It is extremely effective in improving the sperm count and quality. It also benefits the sperm’s mobility, size, and shape. It is recommended for men to receive acupuncture as it promotes the sexual function and health while enhances energy, relieving stress, and balancing hormones.
