IVF Preparation



We understand that it is challenging to decide whether or not to take IVF as women's alternative to get pregnant. You may have tried IUI or natural conception and did not succeed. We are here to help women who are trying to conceive via IVF.

There are several important things in order to prepare for IVF to have a successful conception. The next paragraphs will show you how to be prepared.

Healthy Lifestyle

It is necessary for women undertaking IVF treatments to stop smoking and have less coffee (2 cups daily is maximum). There is also important to exercise regularly and maintain your weight according to healthy BMI. If the BMI is high, you will need to reduce at least 5% of the body fat. By reducing a little bit, you may improve fertility and consequently affect the conception.

Acupuncture can assist women in losing that little bit of weight in order to improve fertility.

Good Egg Quality

The good egg needs blood supply, right hormone signals, right nutrients and capacity to supply sufficient energy to the embryo. Prior to egg collection, women who try to conceive could try acupuncture in conjunction with fertility treatments once a week. Acupuncture combining with Chinese herbal medicine will help to nourish the eggs with nutrients and hence resulting in the good quality of eggs.

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine can rejuvenate some oocyte characteristics by enhancing the delivery of nutrition to egg development and improving the capacity to create energy for the embryo.

Sperm Quality

Acupuncture has been shown to increase blood flow through the small blood vessels of the testes, improve the delivery of nutrients to develop sperm and promote optimal sperm vitality.

Regular menstrual cycle

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine could help to regulate the menstrual cycle in women. The ideal cycle is usually within 28 days. A regular cycle is an indication that the hormones are balanced and ovary function is working in normal order.

Prior to starting your IVF cycle; women should do acupuncture in assistance with the fertility treatments for once a week. The effect of treatment is so significant, that it might increase the chance of conception of up to 65%.
