Supporting you through IVF

If you are looking for IVF acupuncture in Tweed Heads, you are at the right place. At Amena Wellness Clinic, we safely and effectively customise your treatment as well as support you throughout the lengthy process.

Although we always hope for a naturally smooth pregnancy for our clients, we also understand that sometimes it’s not always the case and medical intervention may be needed. That’s why we strive to give you the best service of IVF acupuncture in Tweed Heads. Combining In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) with acupuncture increases the success rate of conception.

Acupuncture and IVF

Acupuncture is a Chinese based treatment that involves the insertion of ultra-thin needles in certain points in the body to restore body balance and regulate body functions.

IVF, on the other hand, is the process of fertilization whereby an egg is combined with a sperm in a laboratory, and then the embryo transferred to the uterus. IVF by itself alone has a 25% chance of success.

Integrating acupuncture with IVF increases the chances significantly.

Acupuncture before IVF Cycle

In order to enhance the fertility acupuncture success rate, treatment should be administered before and after the embryo is transferred to the uterus.

We recommend couples to begin treatment three months before starting the process to provide an optimal preparatory period to maximise the quality of the egg and sperm.

IVF acupuncture treatment is aimed at increasing blood circulation to ovaries and uterus as well as creating an ideal uterine environment for implantation. .

Acupuncture during IVF

During IVF, acupuncture helps the process by thickening uterine lining to encourage implantation during transfer. It also decreases uterine contractions and relaxes the uterus to reduce the chance of a miscarriage after transfer.

IVF treatment can cause emotional and physical stress for the couple. Therefore, acupuncture helps decrease stress and anxiety which in turn improves the production of reproductive hormones.

During egg collection, it helps reduce any bleeding or any tissue trauma. It also helps alleviate side effects associated with the IVF such as fatigue, moodiness, and discomfort.

Acupuncture after IVF

Couples should continue with acupuncture during the first three months of the pregnancy to help support and stabilize the pregnancy. Miscarriages usually happen in the first trimester with 10-25% of pregnancies ending in miscarriage.

Acupuncture can significantly reduce chances of a miscarriage by increasing thickness of the uterus wall to hold the pregnancy, reducing uterine contractions in early pregnancy, improving blood flow to minimise any chance of blood clot, and reducing stress. It also helps alleviate early pregnancy symptoms including nausea, morning sickness, and fatigue.
