I have already started my IVF stimulation am I too late to start Acupuncture?
No you can start Acupuncture support at any time.
It is my first IVF attempt, can I still use acupuncture?
Sure you can. We can support you through the first IVF stimulation. In some cases a woman only needs one round.
My husband has a low sperm count, we will be using ICSI. Can I use acupuncture to support myself during IVF?
In this case we recommend seeing both partners for IVF support.
How many treatments will I need?
There are many variables, depending on previous history and condition. We suggest weekly for 3 months prior to IVF stimulation for those with a history of infertility.

However each individual varies, so please talk to your highly qualified practitioners at our centres.

Apart from acupuncture are there any other treatments I should consider?
Yes based on individual needs your practitioner may suggest vitamins, Chinese herbs, lifestyle and diet changes.
Is changing my diet important?
Diet changes can be very important. Nutritional deficiencies such as Iron can impact your results. Your practitioner will take into account your individual needs and tailor some changes for you.
I need to lose a few kilos how will this affect my treatment?
Generally speaking we suggest the a woman lose weight before starting IVF, however we can assist in the weight control and start the three months preparation during this time.
What is the age of the oldest woman to conceive?

We have many clients over 40 who have conceived naturally. Lately one lady conceived naturally and just delivered a healthy baby with age of 44 .

Quite a few cases conceived naturally while doing her preparation for IVF in her 40’s. I can think of many cases of successful combination of IVF with Acupuncture over the age of 40.

We have also dealt with clients with advanced age using donor embryos.

What if my FSH levels is high?
High FSH means your ovaries are not responding to Follicle stimulating hormone. For women who is not in menopause, a combination of Acupuncture and herbal medicine may help reduce the FSH level.
Are there any particular supplements that I should take?
For a women as a general rule we usually suggest:

• Pregnancy multi-vitamins,

• Fish oil

• Royal Jelly For the man;

• Deer velvet

However depending on you individual needs you may need variations some common variations include Vitamin D and iron.

Do I need to take herbal medicine?

You don’t have to. Your treatment is entirely up to you. However, in some cases herbs are crucial to the success.

Do herbs taste bad?
They certainly not taste great. However after a few time you will get use to the taste, and may start to like it because you can feel the benefit from the herbs.

We use a combination of herbs:

Raw, granule and pills

The traditional raw herbs taste bitter but are the strongest variety. Raw herbs have been used in China for hundreds if not thousands of years to treat fertility, they are not always tasty but they work great!

Granulated herbs are less bitter however they are less potent. Pills are great for those who cannot handle the taste but are much weaker.

Once I am pregnant should I continue with Acupuncture?
We recommend that a woman should continue with acupuncture for several reasons;

• Acupuncture helps relieve symptoms of morning sickness

• Acupuncture can help with general health complaints in pregnancy such as pains aches, poor sleep, low energy

• In the last trimester acupuncture can get the body ready for a natural labour

The frequency will be discussed with your practitioner due to individual conditions. Often weekly acupuncture is recommended with or without Chinese herbal medicines.
