IVF and acupuncture as an adjunct fertility treatment
The Fertility and IVF Acupuncture Clinic maintains high standards in IVF support treatment protocols. Dr Kirk Wilson (PhD) combines evidence base treatments (which are scientifically proven) with traditional techniques along with his clinical experience. There are a number of treatment protocols which can be followed when combining acupuncture as an adjunct treatment to IVF.
These are as follows:
1. A course of acupuncture treatment in preparation of an IVF cycle. This is best done approximately two to three months prior to the commencement of the IVF cycle.
2. Acupuncture treatment commencing on the first day of the menstrual cycle (i.e. first day of the period). This protocol involves two acupuncture treatments a week in addition to an acupuncture treatment before and after transfer.
3. An acupuncture treatment before and after transfer (on the same day).
