How do I know if the treatment is working and I am improving my chances of falling pregnant?
Each time you attend the Fertility and IVF Acupuncture Clinic you will receive a Chinese medicine diagnosis before your treatment. During the consultation Dr Kirk Wilson will discuss your progress with you. He will update you on how the acupuncture and/or Chinese herbal medicine treatments have addressed the imbalance which is causing your infertility. He will be able to give you more detailed feedback at the end of each menstrual cycle.
Once a full BBT chart has been completed, Dr Wilson can better judge how you have changed relative to corresponding phases of your previous menstrual cycles. The comparison enables Dr Wilson to get a true objective gauge on how the treatment is affecting the underlying imbalance in your menstrual cycle and in turn your fertility. In effect, the simplest way to explain how acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine aid fertility is in the regulation of the menstrual cycle. We only get one chance, once a month, to see how your whole cycle has responded to the acupuncture and/or Chinese herbal medicine treatment. This is why it may take a few cycles to achieve a positive pregnancy.
For more information, refer to the FAQ on how long it takes to fall pregnant. At the Fertility and IVF Acupuncture Clinic we ask you to commit to five months worth of treatment. This gives Dr Wilson enough time to gauge how well you are responding to your acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine treatments.
If you have any questions phone Dr Wilson at the clinic on 1300 864 325. Infertility patients at the Fertility and IVF Acupuncture Clinic will have any of their treatment related questions answered by Dr Wilson personally. He prides himself on making himself available and will return telephone calls a soon as he gets a chance.
