Acupuncture is often administered to men and women with a variety of health conditions, including infertility. Very fine needles are inserted into specific points to promote balance and restore energy in the body.
For women undergoing treatment for infertility, acupuncture may reduce stress and is thought by some to aid in the circulation of energy to the uterus and to provide a sense of balance. Acupuncture may be used during many stages of the fertility treatment process all the way through postnatal support.

Each treatment lasts about one hour and will be scheduled in conjunction with your embryo transfer appointment.
