Infertility & Assisted Reproductive Technology
When and How Chinese Acupuncture / Herbs can assist you during ART?
- Whether you are seeking a pregnancy naturally or with the help of assisted reproductive technology (ART), we can support your body before, during, and after a pregnancy.
- Traditional Chinese medicine has shown to increase a couple’s chance of conceiving significantly when used with Western fertility treatments.
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
- Traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture can significantly increase the response and success of all forms of Assisted Reproductive Technologies, including a 50% increase in In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) success rates.
- Studies have focused on how acupuncture can increase the blood flow in the uterus and ovaries, creating a more suitable and fertile environment for mature follicles to both develop and implant. Additionally, treating the man at the same time will allow him to provide improved sperm samples of higher counts, increased motility, and more regular morphology.
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) overall success rates for IUI are 15-20%. Traditional Chinese medicine, however, can greatly improve these success rates by combining acupuncture, reproductive organ massage and Chinese herbs, all of which have a proven positive effect on conception and implantation.
