Ideally, I like to see patients least two to three months before the IVF cycle is due to begin. However, if the interval is shorter there is still plenty that can be done.
Once treatment begins it is good to keep up with treatment to deal with the side effects of the fertility drugs and keep as de stressed as possible. On the day of transfer acupuncture is recommend before and sometimes afterwards to give the process the best possible chance of success.
If the IVF cycle is not successful, Acupuncture can help prepare for the next cycle or restore the body to its normal function if no further treatment is followed.
