In-Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) has been helping women conceive since 1977. This pioneering science involves the fertilisation of an egg with a sperm outside of the body before it’s implanted into the woman’s uterus, where it is hopefully successfully brought to term. Success rates in Australia start at 37% per embryo transfer resulting in a live birth for patients under 30 years of age, but this drops to 8.8% for patients over 40 years old. If you’re looking to improve your chances of a successful conception, IVF acupuncture may be able to help. Melbourne acupuncture clinic Golden Health Acupuncture offers treatment and support for people looking to improve their fertility and increase the likelihood of their IVF treatment proving successful.
If you’re looking to increase the chances of your IVF treatment being successful, you should begin IVF acupuncture in Melbourne about a month prior to commencing the cycle of fertilisation and implantation, with once-weekly treatments for four to five weeks. Some practitioners may suggest undergoing weekly treatments for the three months leading up to the first IVF cycle for the best possible results. If you’re still practising birth control but decide you want to come off and fall pregnant, we’d suggest commencing IVF treatment about two or three weeks before your first IVF stimulation and continuing twice a week until IVF stimulation is at its strongest point.
Giving birth and starting a family can be one of the most rewarding experiences in a person’s life.
