In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a process of assisted reproductive technology where fertilization occurs outside the body, on The Terrace in Wellington it is most likely Fertility Associates. Acupuncture, on the other hand, is a technique that involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body at acupuncture points proximal to nerves. When acupuncture stimulates these points it will promote healing and relieve pain.
There is an abundant amount of evidence from medical journals and studies that suggest acupuncture may potentially facilitate the success rates of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). One of these Journals in a 2014 meta-analysis found that acupuncture significantly increased clinical pregnancy rates in women undergoing IVF treatments.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective complementary therapy that can be added to IVF treatments. Acupuncture may be used to increase blood flow to the uterus, balance hormone levels, and enhance the emotional well-being of women undergoing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). The mechanism behind acupuncture may not entirely be understood in Western Medical science, however, the research suggests that it may help to improve blood flow to the uterus, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve overall reproductive function.
