How IVF Acupuncture Enhances Success Rates

Posted by:

Many couples in West Los Angeles and Santa Monica face fertility issues that prevent them from conceiving. When you can’t become pregnant the natural way, you may consider in-vitro fertilization (IVF) in an effort to expand your family. Perhaps you are already undergoing this treatment, but so far it hasn’t been successful. Regardless of the situation, IVF acupuncture is proven to boost success rates, good news given the high cost of these treatments.

How does IVF acupuncture boost pregnancy success rates?

First of all, acupuncture improves blood flow to the ovaries, uterus, and all reproductive organs. Why is this important? Blood is what carries essential nutrients to all cells of the body. Adequate nourishment is vital for proper functioning. When the reproductive environment is well nourished, the uterine lining thickens which lends to a higher likelihood of implantation success. Egg quality is improved as well.

Stress reduction. When you’re focused on a successful pregnancy, the stress you experience can be enormous. Becoming pregnant is all you can think about. IVF acupuncture is well known for reducing stress and releasing the body’s endorphins, which are natural “feel good” hormones. Your mind will be more calm, your muscles will relax, and you be far less stressed during your fertility treatment. When your stress hormones are high, it can compromise fertility.

Women who have IVF treatments take fertility medications that often have negative side effects. Acupuncture is wonderful when done early in the IVF cycle for reducing these side effects. IVF acupuncture is also thought to reduce or even prevent uterine contractions, important for a viable pregnancy.

Reducing stress is perhaps the most important reason to consider IVF acupuncture, as stress not only makes conceiving more difficult, it can also interfere with fertility medications. As you can imagine, these medications are vital to success with in-vitro fertilization. Stress, hormonal imbalances, and age are primary reasons so many women have problems becoming pregnant, with or without IVF treatments.

Acupuncture can help you feel relaxed and more in control of your experience during treatment. Used before and during IVF, acupuncture should be considered when you want nothing more than a healthy, happy pregnancy!
