Most women undergoing IVF have heard how important it is to get acupuncture before or after your Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET), but did you know getting acupuncture can amplify the benefits and reduce the side effects every step of the way during IVF?

The best time to start weekly acupuncture during IVF is before entering the ovarian stimulation phase, continuing throughout stim, before and after egg retrieval and before and after your embryo transfer.

Fertility acupuncture will work to increase the uptake of hormone medications in the ovaries, strengthen the signaling between the brain and ovaries to regulate hormone levels, reduce the risk of Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome (OHSS), reduce any unpleasant after effects after egg retrieval, draw fresh oxygenated blood to the uterus to build up the lining before transfer, and support implantation and early pregnancy.

No matter where you are in the IVF process, don’t wait and book an appointment at Aphrodite today.
