Acupuncture can support your body when used with or without IVF treatment. The treatment can be performed on men and women. Needles are inserted in certain areas around the body and in the ears.
If you do not need IVF treatment then a monthly session just before you ovulate is usual. Eating and drinking well, keeping positive, trying to be stress free helps to keep you focused.
IVF treatment is becoming more common. The build up and the actual treatment can be a worrying time. I always use the sessions at stimulation probably the most stressful time, four sessions in all just before your first scan and the rest of the treatment at three-day intervals.
For male clients a weekly treatment for 6 weeks or more is recommended. Clients are advised to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
