IVF and IUI Support

Providing Support for:

IVF and IUI

For some couples, IVF and IUI are the necessary avenues that need to be navigated in order for conception and pregnancy to occur. With so much at stake both emotionally and financially, at TerraSana, we want to assist in making this journey as smooth and stress free as possible.

A large part of that is achieved by optimizing your health with our Fertility Enhancement program along with the Living Fertile Method to ensure that the best egg and sperm quality is available during your medicated cycle.

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can be used to help prepare for, and enhance conception for In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) and other Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) protocols.

With Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine we can greatly prepare the body in the following areas where Western medicine offers limited treatment options:

In Women:

• Improves egg quality
• Improves the ovarian response
• Regulates the reproductive hormones
• Increases circulation of blood to the ovaries and uterus
• Improves the quality of the follicular fluids required for nourishment to developing eggs

In Men:

• Improves sperm count
• Improves sperm morphology
• Improves sperm motility
• Increases sperm volume

As with the women’s eggs, healthier sperm contribute to viable embryos, leading to a successful pregnancy and decreased risk of early miscarriage

Treatment to Prepare for and During an IVF/IUI Cycle

It is recommended that couples begin preparatory treatment three months prior to the beginning of their medicated cycle, as follicles go through a 90-120 day follicular development period before they mature for ovulation. Sperm require a period of at least 90 days for maturation. Three months of weekly treatment prior to IVF stimulation is recommended to maximize both egg and sperm quality.

Complimentary treatment during the IVF cycle helps to increase a women’s appropriate response to hormonal stimulation. Treatment frequency varies, dependent on the phase of IVF, down-regulation, ovarian stimulation, egg retrieval, uterine preparation, embryo transfer and the Two Week Wait.

Acupuncture treatments are designed to support these different phases while decreasing the side effects often experienced from the medications. It is recommended that treatments increase to twice a week once your medication protocols have started and to continue these treatments all the way through to Embryo Transfer to optimize intended effects of your cycle.
