Everybody agrees: it’s time you started/expanded your family. This is going to be fun, right? What happens, though, when you reach a point where it no longer feels like fun? Your life revolves around your ovulation. You sex life has turned into a timed chore. Each month, when your period comes, you feel a profound sense of failure. You friend who didn’t even want kids just announced she’s pregnant.
You are not alone. According to CDC, 10 percent of women in the United States ages 15-44 have difficulty getting pregnant or staying pregnant. That’s over six million women each year who are struggling to conceive!
Good news: we live in times when lots of things are possible. If you want to be a parent, you can become one. Chinese medicine can, and does, help.
Most of the time, babies don’t like to stay in two star hotels. If you’re stressed, tired, eat junk and turn into a zombie before and during your period, chances are you need to upgrade to a five star hotel. Chinese medicine helps put you in a new luxury suite. Fluff the super-soft bedding. Hire a better concierge. Install an in-house masseuse.
An official list of Chinese medicine benefits looks like this:
- Increase blood flow to the ovaries and uterus
- Regulate hormones
- Reduce stress
- Regulate immune system
- Decrease chance of miscarriage
- Reduce side effects of IVF medications
- Decrease uterine contractility post IVF embryo transfer
- Improve sperm count, motility and morphology
Acupuncture Before And After IVF Transfer
Research has shown that acupuncture treatment before and after IVF transfer significantly increases chances of conception. My acupuncture treatment protocols are based on those used in a number of clinical trials. I currently preform on site visits at the Oregon Reproductive Medicine and OHSU
