IVF Support

Many health practitioners may recommend acupuncture as an adjunct treatment that may assist with IVF treatment.

There is continuing research about how acupuncture can assist with the effectiveness of IVF treatment and you should consult your treating practitioner/s about how acupuncture may be able to help you.

Fertility Support, Fremantle

practitioners recommend the following ivf support schedule for women:

  • Before and during the medication phase of IVF: weekly treatments.
  • At any phase to manage side effects: as needed.
  • After egg collection: one treatment soon after collection, or up to two days after.
  • On the day of fresh or frozen embryo transfer: one treatment hours after procedure, and on the same day before transfer if wanted.
  • During the early stages of pregnancy: one treatment per week until 12 weeks.

Acupuncture for Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is similar to IVF support in the early stages.
iui Acupuncture treatments include:

  • One to two treatments in the follicular phase.
  • Implantation treatment three to five days after the IUI.
  • One week after implantation, and ongoing weekly treatments to 12 weeks.

The recommended schedule for men includes:

  • Up to 3 months before IVF and specimen collection: two to three treatments.
  • Up to 3 months before Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE): two treatments per week.
  • On the day of specimen collection: one treatment hours before collection.
