Acupuncture to Support IVF/IUI/ICSI

Acupuncture to Support IVF/IUI/ICSI

Unfortunately, getting pregnant does not come easily for everyone. More and more couples have fertility problems. Medical programs such as IUI, IVF & ICSI are widely used. These are intensive processes in the hospital to increase the chance of a pregnancy.
If you are looking for a natural way to increase the success rate of an IVF/IUI/ICSI attempt, acupuncture is definitely worth considering.

Preparing for an IUI/IVF/ICSI with acupuncture

The hospital mainly works in the laboratory to increase your chances of conceiving. With acupuncture we can work on what you can do yourself to increase the chance of pregnancy.
This is can be done among other things, by acupuncture treatment, but there’s also a lot you can do yourself. I will also help you with diet & lifestyle to improve your chances.

It is preferable to give your body resting period of 3 months before you start the medical process. During this 3-month period acupuncture treatments are planned that are aimed at bringing your body back into balance and preparing your body for pregnancy. This increases the chances of a successful IVF/IUI/ICSI attempt.

If you are already in IVF/IUI/ICSI treatments, you are also welcome in my practice. The treatments are then tailored to the stage you are in.

It is also possible to map your cycle by keeping a Basal Body Temperature Curve (BBT). This is a temperature curve that you can fill in for a month. If you have already kept a temperature curve, it is helpful to take it with you to the consultation.

Support of acupuncture during the IUI/IVF/ICSI trajectory

The moment you start the IUI/IVF/ICSI process, the acupuncture is focused on the side effects of the medication, reduction of stress and rest in the womb. Studies have shown that acupuncture treatment prior to transfer increases the chance of pregnancy.

Even without 3 months of acupuncture preparation, you are welcome in my practice. I will adapt the treatment to you, and at what stage of the process you are in.

Study’s into IVF & acupuncture studies

One of the most famous researches is the research of Wolfgang E. Paulus. He developed the so-called “Paulus protocol”. In this study 160 women were examined for their 3rd IVF attempt. The first group was treated with acupuncture according to the “Paulus protocol” and 42.5% of these were pregnant, the second group had no acupuncture treatments and 26.3% of them were pregnant.
