A large number of clinical trials have been conducted throughout the world which demonstrated that acupuncture can increase IVF pregnancy rates and reduce anxiety related to infertility and the IVF process.
The main objectives of Chinese Medicine prior to IVF are:
- Improve the function of the ovaries, which allows for the development of better quality eggs and strong, healthy embryos.
- Regulates Estrogen & Progesterone levels thereby thickening the lining of the uterus.
- Decrease FSH levels.
- Strengthen the immune system and reduce stress – prevents the uterus from contracting thereby improving the implantation process and preventing the chance of miscarriage.
