Acupuncture for fertility: Enhancing Assisted Reproductive Technology

If you are thinking about assisted reproductive technology (ART) such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF), or intra-uterine insemination (IUI), acupuncture for fertility can improve your chance of success. There are numerous published scientific studies that have shown that acupuncture significantly increases chances of successful implantation following an IVF procedure, and increased rates of clinical pregnancies. Typically, an acupuncture session must be done on the day of embryo transfer, and again within 2-4 days following embryo transfer, and weekly during the first trimester when pregnancy is confirmed. Treatments of acupuncture for fertility 3 months prior to ART, will greatly enhance your success rate.

Why choose a Naturopathic Doctor instead of an acupuncturist or TCM Doctor for treatments of acupuncture for fertility?

Naturopathic Doctors are licensed and regulated professionals, who have extensive training in medical sciences in addition to a number of natural therapies (including Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Herbal medicine, Clinical Nutrition, Homeopathy, Lifestyle counseling). NDs are trained to be able to assess your whole health (both from a traditional and a more modern scientific perspective), order lab tests, perform physical examinations, and diagnose your condition. NDs can provide multiple treatment options in addition to acupuncture, in order to get your body as healthy as possible and increase chances of getting pregnant. Acupuncture for fertility is a wonderful tool, however when combined with other natural treatment modalities, can be even more effective. There are many conditions and imbalances that are often overlooked by fertility specialists and family medical doctors, that may be causing your infertility. Naturopathic Doctors are fully trained to identify, diagnose and treat these conditions. This is because during a visit, NDs spend the time to review your entire health history and current symptoms (even those that you think may not be related to your infertility). A very individualized comprehensive treatment plan is formulated specifically for you, aimed at bring your body back into balance.
