Conception is the very first step towards having a baby, but for some becoming pregnant is not straightforward.

At GinSen, many ofen ask us should I have acupuncture before or after embrotransfer, and We recommend acupuncture 24-48 hours before embryo transfer to increase the chance of a successful pregnancy. The focus of this acupuncture treatment are to increase uterine blood flow, decrease stress and to decrease uterine contractions to help increase the chances of successful embryo implantation.

If this is the first IVF or IUI cycle, it is recommended that you start with 8-12 treatments three months prior to your IVF cycle as that is a full egg development cycle. If you have a history of a previously failed cycle, depending on you specific history we often recommend a longer preconception preparation period to help balance and restore optimal fertility function.

Benefits before:

Acupuncture also helps to address the male factor component in a couple's fertility potential improving semen count, morphology, and motility.
