Can acupuncture help with IVF Protocols?

At our office, we generally work with women from the beginning of their IVF protocol. We suggest weekly treatments to start during the suppression phase, through the stimulation phase, and until the time of transfer. We are available to accompany women to their transfer site for acupuncture immediately before and after embryo transfer.

Can Well Women treat men to increase fertility?

If a man has been diagnosed with a low sperm count or motility problems, acupuncture and herbs may be highly beneficial, particularly prior to any lab-assisted fertility procedures. At The Lotus Center, we often treat our patients’ partners, and have found this to contribute to successful pregnancy.
