Infertility is common, impacting approximately 10% to 18% of couples globally, according to a study published in the International Journal of Fertility & Sterility
Couples are increasingly turning to fertility treatment, or Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), more now than ever before. Sometimes the decision to embark on IVF can be a difficult one. One big reason for this is because there’s no guarantee that the procedure will be a success.
Improving egg quality – Good egg quality is necessary to a successful IVF cycle. It takes about three months (well, 100 days to be exact) for follicles to mature and develop so having acupuncture for at least three months prior to your IVF cycle will help create the best environment for those maturing and developing follicles.
