IVF starts from stimulating ovaries, how can acupuncture help?

Women have natural menstrual cycles. In a natural monthly cycle, the ovaries normally produce 1 egg. If this egg is fertilized by a sperm, an embryo will be formed; if the embryo is implanted in the uterus and pregnancy occurs. In IVF treatment, more eggs are needed to increase success rate. This ovary stimulating process starts from day 1 to encourage the follicles growing. The medications used to stimulate follicles are follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). Both hormones are produced naturally in the body. The eggs are already there; the medication boosts the hormone levels to encourage more eggs to develop. Blood tests and ultrasound scan will be used to monitor follicles growing. This first step of IVF is the same as egg freezing and embryo freezing.

What can you do to help the follicles (eggs) develop? Having acupuncture treatment is a good way to help the eggs development. Acupuncture reduces sympathetic nerve activities and release tension of the body; this will facilitate blood flow to the ovaries to provide more oxygen and nutrients for the fast growing egg’s needs and also take toxins away from the ovaries.
