The practice of acupuncture has become popular amongst women who are going through IVF or IUI. So what is it and how can it work for you.
Did you know, acupuncture has become such a thing for women going through the IVF or IUI process of getting pregnant, that several IVF acupuncture clinics are situated in close proximity to fertility centres such as IVF Australia? This is so women are given the opportunity to have acupuncture in the lead up to IVF transfer, or simply before and after the IVF transfer of the embryo.
If you are planning to visit an acupuncture clinic, here’s what you need to know, so you can be prepared for your appointment.
If you are having acupuncture in the lead up to IVF, be sure to know what your cycle is doing so that you can consult with an acupuncturist.
The little details such as frequency of menstrual cycle, colour of menstrual blood, and amount of bleeding are just some of the small details which may be used by the acupuncturist to determine your overall health.
Your period is like a monthly report card, so if you visit our Sutherland Shire IVF acupuncture rooms please bring this information in with you!
Better still, if you have been doing a BBT chart (Body Basal Temperature chart), this information can be invaluable. This type of information gives your health professional, a good idea as to how the hormones, and time of ovulation are going, in order to support your cycle.
If you are having acupuncture for the day of the transfer, it is best to do it as close as possible to the time of transfer. Usually, acupuncture treatments occur both before and after the transfer, which is why so many clinics have popped up around major IVF centres.
Here at Pure Alchemy, we offer support for IVF treatments. For bookings and inquiries, please contact us.
