What do I need to do to assist my infertility acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine treatments?
The most important thing you need to do is complete your BBT chart correctly. It sounds absurd to say, but the patients who are diligent in accurately completing their chart, have a greater chance of falling pregnant. It is not that the chart itself or the act of the chart affects fertility rates, but the details in a correctly completed chart provide the information needed to fine tune the acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine treatments.
The next most important thing to do is to follow the advice or instructions given to you. Unfortunately, when you are attending the Fertility and IVF Acupuncture Clinic you are not outsourcing your fertility troubles to us. This is a team effort. We cannot do all the work for you. At times you may be asked to do some homework. Please do this homework, as it will be given to you for a reason. From time to time, we may require you to change your diet, loose some weight, exercise, engage in a relaxation technique or perform moxibustion on yourself between treatments etc.
There may be times when we will want you to do nothing. For some people this is needed as they are so wound up in having a baby, they are creating extra stress which can impede the progress of the treatment. This problem is evident to varying degrees in most patients. This why at the Fertility and IVF Acupuncture Clinic, Dr Wilson encourages his patients just to think they are attending each week to be treated for wellbeing. This tends to alleviate some of the pressure.
