This program aims to directly involve you in the entire IVF cycle, from our 3-4 month pre-conception preparation program, through to the commencement of a cycle, including explanations on medications and procedures. We offer a safe place for you to voice your questions or queries, both during your treatment time and at any time during the cycle.
The program also enables you to keep us updated at all stages of your cycle, including blood tests and ultrasound results, medication changes and any relevant information.
In addition to the physical benefits of acupuncture within the IVF cycle, we aim to nurture the emotional aspects, which are equally as important during the IVF process. Olive Tree Acupuncture therefore provides a safe, reassuring and supportive environment for those in Sydney’s Inner West and Eastern Suburbs.
Acupuncture can assist the IVF process by decreasing stress levels, stabilising hormone levels, improving blood and energy flow to the ovaries, uterus and fallopian tubes, improving quality and thickness of endometrium, improving egg quality, improving sperm count, motility and morphology, improving your sleeping patterns and by reducing the chances of a miscarriage.
During your cycle acupuncture has shown to be useful:
During the stimulation/medication phase
1 – 2 treatments per week improve follicle development, reduce side effects of the medication and improve the uterine lining.
After egg collection
Treatment within 1 – 2 days reduces any local trauma or cramping, calms the mind and enriches uterine lining.
Before embryo transfer
Circulates blood to the uterus and calms the mind.
After embryo transfer
Prevents uterine cramping, increases implantation success, reduces the chance of miscarriage and calms the mind.
Weekly after transfer
Acupuncture reduces risk of miscarriage, calms the mind and reduces anxieties and supports your developing embryo.
Our IVF acupuncture services also impart emotional balance, wellbeing, and self-confidence for our Sydney clients. Women often report feelings of optimism about their cycle, feel less anxiety post-transfer, and enjoy an increased sense of control over their part in the IVF process.
