Pre & Post Embryo Transfer

At a minimum, acupuncture can be used both before and after an embryo transfer to increase pregnancy rates. Performing acupuncture at this time can lessen unwanted side effects of medications, increase blood flow to the uterus to promote higher implantation rates, decrease uterine spasms and cramping to improve implantation rates, and relax the mind and parasympathetic nervous system.  Acupuncture is usually recommended after retrieval and before embryo transfer, and then either immediately after embryo transfer or up to several days post transfer depending on the particulars of your case.
