Acupuncture & IVF  - Columbia Maryland, Howard County
Ideally patients begin acupuncture treatment three months before they undergo any assisted reproductive treatments.  The emphasis of fertility treatment is unique to each woman.  For some patients hormonal balance needs support.  For others the energy and blood flow to the reproductive organs has been blocked and needs to be restored.  Often it is a combination of both.

If you are currently undergoing IUI or IVF procedures, acupuncture, according to several recent studies, will significantly increase success.  Combining the technology of assisted reproductive procedures with the deep internal nourishment and balance of acupuncture is a wise choice.

FAQ's -Acupuncture Columbia Maryland, Howard County

The delicate complexity of a woman’s body responds to acupuncture treatment which does not try to “force” conception and implantation but rather restores the energy, balance and blood flow that are necessary for optimal reproductive function.  The technology exists to allow conception to take place outside of the body,  however, each woman must be capable of receiving, holding and nourishing an embryo through development.  It is not possible to force pregnancy or healthy delivery when the body does not have the internal resources necessary. 

Using acupuncture along with IUI and IVF technology optimizes the opportunity for a successful healthy pregnancy and delivery.  Patients are seen throughout their pregnancies and it is a pleasure when treatment shifts from being “infertility” focused to providing relief from very welcome “morning sickness!”

Acupuncture: Essential Part of IVF Success, Research Finds

Paul Magarelli, M.D., Ph.D., an infertility physician at the Reproductive Medicine & Fertility Center, and Diane Cridennda, L.A.c, an acupuncturist at East Winds, both centers in Colorado Springs, Colo., published their evidence of acupuncture's demonstrable role in successful vitro fertilization (IVF) outcomes in the journal Infertility and Sterility.

In the study, they used a minimum of nine acupuncture treatments within two months before the embryo transfer. Since this was a research study, each patient received the same treatment.

Lorne Brown, CA, Doctor of TCM, founder and clinical director of Acubalance Wellness Centre, analyzed the data Dr. Magarelli presented and has posted the following conclusions on his website (www.acubalance.ca):

  • Acupuncture does not cause harm to fertility or negatively interfere with an IVF outcome.
  • Acupuncture can statically improve the live birth rate from IVF by 10 percent to 15 percent.
  • Acupuncture reduces the number of ectopic pregnancies occurring in IVF fertilizations.
  • The acupuncture protocol (minimum of nine treatments using set points) did not affect egg quality, but did improve factors affecting egg implantation
  • Acupuncture improves implantation and live birth rates by regulating the body's hormone levels to mimic these hormone levels in a natural cycle.
