Undergoing IVF or ICSI? Looking for acupuncture to support your treatment and to help you relax? We work regularly with patients receiving treatment at the local assisted reproduction centres. This includes CARE Nottingham and NURTURE. We are located a few minutes drive from each, and within easy reach of Derby and the M1.
Treatment is most commonly started 2 – 3 months before you start your medications. It can however be given at any time up to embryo transfer. We can also provide ‘transfer day’ acupuncture for you if you are travelling in from other areas. Please give us a call to discuss your needs.
The British Acupuncture Council states that ‘research has established plausible mechanisms to explain how acupuncture may boost fertility. These include regulating fertility hormones, reducing stress, increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs and counteracting the effects of polycystic ovarian syndrome’.
A number of studies have now looked at the benefit of combining acupuncture and IVF. Read more.
During your initial consultation we will ask you in detail about your general and reproductive health. We will ask about blood test results and take a look at your proposed IVF or ICSI protocol. From this we will recommend a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
IVF ICSI support for you. Remember we speak your language.
