Acupuncture for Embryo Transfer
Apart from the regular weekly appointments, having acupuncture immediately before and after embryo transfer (on the same day) is most important. We understand the importance of having acupuncture on the actual day of transfer so we try as much as possible to accomodate for treatment, even if this means being there on a Sunday or public holiday.
After embryo transfer it is also recommended to continue weekly acupuncture until the pregnancy is well established (12 weeks). In case there is a history of miscarriage this is a very important time to continue receiving acupuncture.
Although the aim of the acupuncture is slightly different, these protocols are similar for fresh and frozen IVF cycles.
