What Is In Vitro Fertilization

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a process by which egg cells are fertilized by sperm outside the womb, in vitro. IVF is a major treatment in infertility when other methods of assisted reproductive technology have failed. The process involves hormonally controlling the ovulatory process, removing ova (eggs) from the woman's ovaries and letting sperm fertilize them in a fluid medium. The fertilized egg (zygote) is then transferred to the patient's uterus with the intent to establish a successful pregnancy. Click here to get a free consultation

How Acupuncture Can Help IVF Succeed?

Chinese Medicine and acupuncture can significantly increase the response and success of all forms of Assisted Reproductive Technologies, including a 50% increase in In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) success rates. Studies have focused on how acupuncture can increase the blood flow in the uterus and ovaries, creating a more suitable and fertile environment for mature follicles to both develop and implant. Additionally, treating the man at the same time will allow him to provide improved sperm samples of higher counts, increased motility, and more regular morphology.
