Who Does It Help?:
Patients who are using IUI along with acupuncture will have the benefit of increasing local circulation and nutrition to the follicles and uterus.
This may be beneficial to those patients who have thin uterine linings, poor responders to follicle stimulation, or inconvenient side effects from their fertility medication such as bloating, headaches, and moodiness.
It is advised that all labs are complete prior to IUI to insure best results. For patients with advanced maternal age or egg quality issues, it is advised that acupuncture treatment and supplements begin three months in advance. For male factor, it is advised that treatment and supplements begin for him at least 75 days in advance.
