ACUPUNCTURE AND IN-VITRO-FERTILIZATION (IVF)
The part of acupuncture treatment in stress management during the procedures of intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in-vitro-fertilization (IVF).
Acupuncture and IVF – People used to get married in early ages in the past. Today, broader participation of prospective mothers in business life raises the marriage age over 30. Furthermore, career and economic concerns as well as the wish of being issueless in early years of marriage make a few years of additional delay.
The wish of being mother in the early 30’s comes with the concern of not being able to be a one because of the old age.
This concern is enough to keep a woman away of being able to be a mother.
Failure of IUI or especially IVF in addition to the pressure based on social surroundings makes the prospective mother’s fear of not being able to get pregnant worse and because of that success rate falls even further.
Researches show that one of the reasons that effects the pregnancy of prospective mothers who have IVF treatment is being unable to manage stress. Then prospective mothers should be able to make themselves manage stress. Stress management is a function of human brain. Yet human brain, especially the limbic system should be equipped correctly about stress. This is an effort that reaches the wish of having a child.
GAIN YOUR STRENGTH WITH ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENT
Acupuncture treatment increases the stability of prospective mothers against stress by regulating the limbic system and makes them gain their strength of struggling with the procedure.
Beyond that it helps the fertilized egg to implant into the uterus by providing the prospective mothers’s endometrium to become thicker which could not before.
Acupuncture contributes to hormonal balance via autonomic nervous system and to quality improvement of the egg.
Many studies exist that compares the rate of getting pregnant and continuation of pregnancy between the prospective mothers who had acupuncture treatment before the transfer and who had not.
Those studies show that the rate of getting pregnant and continuation of pregnancy are higher between the prospective mothers who had acupuncture treatment.
