Acupuncture And IVF: A Helping Hand


We approach your treatment at particular time intervals and stages, however, what we do to help you varies considerably. Acupuncture is provided to our patients in preparation for in vitro fertilisation (IVF).

Acupuncture may also be incorporated during five stages of IVF:

  • Downregulation (weekly)
  • Ovarian stimulation (frequency relevant to age, history)
  • Prior to egg collection (relevant to age, follicular tracking, history)
  • Embryo or blastocyst transfer (depending on case history)
  • The two-week wait (between days 6-10)
  • Post pregnancy positive pregnancy test
