IVF Support


Acupuncture as a complementary approach is widely used in IVF procedures around the world, and, thanks to Dr. Yin, right here in Frisco, TX. It can help you prepare your body physically and mentally during and after the IVF procedure, and mitigate some of the difficult side effects caused by some of the medications as well as improve response to hormonal stimulation.

The initial phase of treatment involves regulating the menstrual cycle by clearing the congestion in the pelvic cavity, and nourishing the deeper vitality. The effects of acupuncture will be the normalization of your hormone levels, or the shrinking of your endometriosis, or the enlivening of your ovaries. Within this phase most women will become fertile and open for conception. It has been shown that the IVF success rate is greatly improved if acupuncture treatment is applied 3 to 6 months before IVF cycles before and after IVF embryo transferring. Acupuncture helps to increase the uterine blood flow and make the lining of the uterus more receptive to receiving an embryo and reduce the risk of a miscarriage.

Acupuncture and Egg Quality Improvement

Before you begin an IVF procedure you should use any means possible to improve the quality of your eggs, rather than the number of eggs produced per cycle. Acupuncture maximizes the blood flow to the ovaries to ensure a constant and steady supply of hormones and nutrients needed for normal growth. Healthy blood flow can increase follicle and egg health and quantity. This is especially true for women who have a poor prognosis either because of age or previously failed cycles.

Acupuncture and Sperm Quality Improvement

It still takes a man and a woman to make a baby. Most men are better at hiding their feelings if they can’t father a child. Dr. Yin knows how important fertility can be to a man’s self worth. Almost all aspects of male infertility can benefit from Dr. Yin’s acupuncture treatments in Frisco. Sperm count, sperm motility and sperm morphology and quality can be increased and even hormonal factors can be resolved by restoring balance to the entire body.
