Acupuncture helps IVF success
Following six unsuccessful IUI procedures (where sperm is injected directly into the woman’s uterus) and one unsuccessful IVF, Stephanie was told that her FSH and AMH levels (which measure fertility hormones) indicated that she would not produce enough eggs for an IVF procedure and her only hope for a pregnancy was to have IVF with donor eggs. Not willing to give up hope yet on having their own baby, Stephanie and her husband turned to Acubalance Wellness Centre (acubalance.ca), Vancouver’s leading acupuncture fertility clinic. After six months of weekly acupuncture treatments Stephanie discovered that her AMH had improved significantly and that, after starting her IVF cycle, her eggs were of excellent quality.
For Stephanie and her husband weekly acupuncture treatments finally helped them realize their dream. “After years of worrying, stress and feeling like we were running out of time, we had now finally found hope. I got pregnant with my first IVF treatment and nine months later we welcomed a beautiful and healthy 9.5 lb baby boy to our family.” says Stephanie. “The joy of being parents is priceless. I think of how close we were to giving up and how lucky we were to have found and Acubalance, in Vancouver.”
What do they suggest about acupuncture? “We encourage patients undergoing IVF treatment to seek consistent acupuncture treatments at least three to six months before a fresh IVF cycle and at least 4 weeks leading up a frozen transfer as well as making life style changes.” said Brown. “Optimal health is important for this stressful journey.”
