How it works
For the past 5 years I have tracked the success of 100’s of couples who have received acupuncture for fertility and as of 2020 my current success rate is: 59%.
Natural fertility doctors have many theories when it comes to how or why IVF acupuncture works, but studies have proven that women who have acupuncture therapy become pregnant more often with IVF than those who do not.
A recent study done in America showed that women who received an average of 12 acupuncture treatments before their egg retrieval and another 6-12 treatments before their transfer had a 61.8% success rate, which is well above the average of ~30-35% success with IVF alone. In a study conducted in Germany in 2002, 42.5% of 80 women who received acupuncture became pregnant compared to only 26.3% of the remaining 80 women who did not receive acupuncture treatments. Other studies have also supported the effectiveness of acupuncture for IVF.
Rather than treating symptoms, our focus is to get your body as healthy as possible. This means making the healthiest eggs, the healthiest uterine lining, the healthiest sperm, reducing stress, and optimizing blood flow. This gives your body the absolute best chance possible at a successful IVF transfer.
