Acupuncture and Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET)

Frozen Embryo Transfer may be an option to those couples that have been able to produce a good harvest during previous IVF (or related) cycles. The treatment consists of the thawing of the embryo, the embryos used for this procedure are of top quality and usually in this country at Blastocyst stage. Then at the appropriate time in the women’s cycle the embryo or embryos will be placed in the uterine cavity. Depending on the women’s cycle and case history, medications may be prescribed to help with this process.

Acupuncture works alongside this process. We do not have to stimulate the follicles during a FET cycle as we already have frozen embyos so we concentrate acupuncture treatment on helping the blood supply to the uterus. The rest of the acupuncture treatment follows the same protocol as a normal assisted conception cycle.
