Fertility, IVF and When to Start Acupuncture

IVF-When to Start Acupuncture:

Start acupuncture as soon as possible before starting IVF, ideally 3 months (at least one month before)

  • Acupuncture 1-3 months before IVF
  • 2 months prior: 2 x/ week
  • 3 months prior: 1x/ week


Frequency of Appointments After IVF Transfer:

Within 24-hours of having transfer is ideal.


Acupuncture Also Treats Infertility with other Issues such as:

  • Anxiety
  • PCOS
  • Endometriosis
  • Fibroids
  • Sleep Issues


Acupuncture is good at helping the body to balance itself. This is why it is a good medical treatment for Anxiety, Mild to Moderate Depression, Hormonal imbalances, Hot flashes, PMS and Uterine Fibroids.


Your licensed acupuncturist will more than likely go over lifestyle, including diet. Here at Aleesha D Acupuncture, we may recommend some exercise and diet modifications under the umbrella of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as it is appropriate to you, the individual.


A healthy, balanced lifestyle can allow the acupuncture and IVF to be more effective.
