Lianne Aquilina and Irina Szmelskyji's textbook is the most comprehensive educational reference on the topic of acupuncture for IVF. Chapter one provides a subfertility overview including the prevalence and causes of infertility from a medical perspective and detailed acupuncture perspective which includes expert diagnosis and acupuncture-related types of clinical presentations. For example, according to a professional acupuncturist, a subfertility patient diagnosed with Liver Qi Stagnation may experience a few or more specific symptoms such as moodiness, irritability, depression, irregular menstrual cycles, painful periods, premenstrual breast tenderness. On examination, the patient may be found to have a pulse quality that is wiry. This condition may be associated with subfertility and impact upon assisted reproduction outcomes. Including ovarian response, lower fertilisation rate, preclinical or early pregnancy loss. In acupuncture practice, there are at least fifteen different fertility conditions that are implicated in subfertility and IVF/ICSI failure. If you are interested in utilising acupuncture, it is important that you are managed expertly. To review the textbook Acupuncture for IVF click here. At Aquilia Acupuncture we advocate preconception care in preparation for assisted reproduction.

Medical data indicates that conditions such as tubal pathology, ovulatory disorders, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), thyroid disease, endometriosis may modify and impact assisted reproductive treatment outcomes negatively. Male factor subfertility and unexplained subfertility are, however, the most common reasons people utilise assisted reproduction in the UK.

Lianne provides expert acupuncture for patients who are undergoing IVF/ICSI for the first time usually through recommendation or patient research or for those who have initially experienced IVF/ICSI failure and now want to try acupuncture to help them. Lianne also manages subfertile patients that have a more complex fertility medical history.

Lianne provides aftercare on news of clinical pregnancy, acupuncture is provided up to 8-12 weeks maximum for IVF/ICSI patients. Case management depends on an individual's case history.
