Acupuncture and In Vitro Fertilitzation (IVF) Bucks County, Montgomery County Pennsylvania

Acupuncture increases the chances of becoming pregnant for a significant number of women undergoing in-vitro fertilization (IVF) according to a study published in the medical journal Fertility and Sterility (April 2002).
Acupuncture can increase pregnancy rates for IVF patients by:

  • Increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs, which dramatically improves a woman’s response to the hormonal therapy; by increasing blood flow to the uterus, the embryos have a better environment after transfer.
  • Regulating hormone levels by moderating the release of beta-endorphin levels in the brain, which improves the release of the gonadotrophin-releasing hormone by the hypothalamus, the follicle-stimulating hormone from the pituitary gland, and the estrogen and progesterone levels from the ovaries.
  • Improving the function of the ovaries which allows the development better quality eggs and embryos.
  • Moderating cyclooxygenase and prostaglandin levels in the uterus, reducing uterine motility to improve implantation rates.
  • Thickening the uterine lining if it is too thin.
  • Reducing stress and hyperactive sympathetic nervous system responses.
  • Lessening the side effects of the medications.
  • Improving semen quality and quantity.

When Should I start Acupuncture?

● Non-IVF patients can start any day because it is best for the acupuncture treatments to accumulate.

● IVF patients should start one cycle before the IVF cycle, or at least no later than Day 5 of your IVF cycle.

Fees

● Initial Visit - $80
● Follow up Visits - $70
