Infertility amongst couples seems to be more prevalent now than ever and many people considered infertile are turning to alternative therapies for assistance. One therapy that may be able to assist is Chinese Medicine.
The fundamental principle of Chinese medicine therapy is to restore balance within the body and enhance the physiological environment to facilitate conception, implantation, and maintenance of a viable pregnancy.
Treatment aims to assist in the fertilization process between the sperm and egg and in the implantation process of the embryo. Beyond the implantation phase treatments provide support for a healthy pregnancy and ongoing postpartum care.
The quality of the environment in the body is considered as important as the quality of eggs, sperm and embryo. Often general wellbeing and any irregularities in the menstrual cycle are fundamental factors which can be optimised with Chinese medicine before conception is attempted.
If you decide to start IVF combined with Chinese medicine treatments, you will receive a tailored treatment plan to address your individual needs and to promote a positive outcome.
