Embryo Transfer during an IVF cycle is an exciting time. It is a time of high hopes and well wishes for a positive result a few weeks later. Acupuncture can be a tool to help prepare for Embryo Transfer, for those whose expected pregnancy rate is less than 30%. The benefits include preparing the uterus for receiving an embryo and promoting implantation and many clinical studies are there to back these claims up.
Acupuncture to support Embryo Transfer requires an appointment before your IVF embryo transfer & after your IVF embryo transfer on the same day. Acupoints to calm the mind, move the qi and blood and direct blood flow to the uterus are used in the first appointment. The second treatment focuses more on nourishing the blood & qi to encourage implantation.
The Spleen energy is important during this time. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the Spleen governs the Uterus. Nourishing this organ with rich blood and creating the right environment for implantation of the embryo is vital for success.
Suggested activities after the IVF Embryo transfer would be to focus on R & R. Let your body do the rest! Gentle exercise such as gentle walking, yoga, meditation would be advised. Nutritionally I recommend nourishing foods such as a Chicken Soup Bone Broth, and Spleen friendly foods to nourish blood & qi. Lots of good quality sleep, nurturing and relaxation is a good way to finish off the intensity of an IVF cycle, the fertility drugs and associated discomfort if you experienced any.
