Every plan is individualised to the person and takes many things into consideration such as the fertility history, possible causes of fertility issues, and other many factors. This acupuncture procedure assists in the pre-phase therapy.
The Effects Of Acupuncture at The Embryo Transfer Stage
Acupuncture is also used for the follicular stimulation phase, to help make the follicles much more apt to develop and increases the number of eggs available for retrieval, to improve the blood supply and stimulate the essential hormones involved with the ovaries at this stage. Those hormones are the follicle-stimulating hormones (FSH) and luteinising hormones (LH). Acupuncture is also associated with thickening the endometrial lining of the uterus to make implantation that much more welcoming for an IVF procedure. (http://aim.bmj.com/content/31/2/157.short)
It is also beneficial during the egg collection phase. Acupuncture has been noted to increase egg development and increases chances of retrieval. (http://aim.bmj.com/content/31/2/157.short)
