Undergoing IVF or IUI

Helping to maximize chances of success while making the process easier, emotionally and physically

Are you looking for effective ways to enhance your chances of success with IVF or IUI? At What’s Good, we specialize in using acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to support our patients’ fertility journeys.

Research has shown that acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can improve blood flow to the ovaries and uterus, leading to better egg and sperm quality, uterine receptivity, and reduced inflammation. In fact, many of our patients have successfully achieved pregnancy and maintained their pregnancies with the help of our treatments.

These are some of the ways that acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can help with IVF and IUI:

Improved blood flow to the ovaries and uterus, which can improve endometrial thickness and receptivity and ovarian function

Improved egg quality

Improved sperm quality; motility and morphology

Increased uterine receptivity via hormonal regulation and improved blood flow

Improved pregnancy rates

Reduction in stress and anxiety associated with the fertility journey and its associated treatments

Females with PCOS; improved egg quality and reduction in inflammation
Reduction of inflammation in the uterus, especially for women with endometriosis
We understand that every patient is unique and requires individualized attention. Our expert practitioners work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and supports your fertility journey.

In addition to improving fertility outcomes, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can also help reduce stress levels, balance hormones, and address conditions like PCOS and recurrent miscarriage.
