How It Works:

BB Hopes Acupuncture Treatment

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been used for thousands of years to treat infertility in women and men. 

Precision acupuncture is proven to work with IVF and IUI treatments to boost the end results#.  Very fine needles are used, is painless and never inserted in the genitals or genital area.

They have been proven to  balance hormones, improve reproductive health, to put women and men in the best condition to conceive.

Western Medicine Treatment Approach

Surgery is often prescribed for treating infertility caused by blockages and other physical issues.

IVF and IUI procedures do not "fix" the underlying issues with the female patient's reproductive system and do not guarantee successful full-term birth or protect against miscarriages.

Studies have shown that acupuncture can increase the success of IVF.

#The landmark German study in 2002 by Wolfgang E. Paulus1 compared pregnancy rates of two groups of women undergoing IVF. The group receiving acupuncture 25 minutes before, and 25 minutes after embryo transfer had a pregnancy rate of 42.5% compared to 26% for the non-acupuncture group.

Embryo Transfer Treatments
The most common way TCM is used for patients undergoing IVF is by providing acupuncture treatments done on the day of the embryo transfer, both pre- and post- transfer.

Pre-Cycle Treatments

Our acupuncture treatment plan for IVF patients can include treatments pre-conception and pre-egg-retrieval and goes far beyond just the pre- and post- embryo transfer treatments.
 
We strongly recommend that patients receive consistent acupuncture treatments in the 4 to 6 months prior to the IVF retrieval-fertilization-transfer cycle.
 
Consistent acupuncture treatments can balance your hormones, improve your overall health and fertility naturally, and put you in the best position to conceive before the cycle even begins.
 
Benefits of IVF Acupuncture

Women undergoing IVF can use acupuncture to:

  • Increase blood flow to the uterus and ovaries
  • Improve the lining of the uterus
  • Regulate fertility hormones which may improve the quantity and quality of follicles
  • Reduce IVF and medication symptoms
  • Reduce stress pre- and post- transfer
  • Decrease chance of miscarriage and increase chance of successful implant and full-term birth
  • Prevent uterine contraction post- transfer
