What to expect at Acumedica?
At Acumedica, our approach to natural fertility and IVF support is integrative and complementary and that is primarily why we are so successful in treating our patients. We will ask you for a copy of all your current blood tests and scans. If you have no blood tests then we ask that you wait as we often recommend a series of blood tests that are sometimes not routinely performed. Viewing your pathology is imperative as we treat according to optimal health and fertility ranges not the average pathology reference ranges.
One of the most important aspect of our natural fertility program is ensuring you are receiving optimal levels of key nutrients for your individual body type, cellular health and genetics. There are many diets and recommendations for taking certain nutrients and following a certain diet to boost fertility however many of them are misleading with little evidence, they are often not improving fertility parameters and worse still could be potentially hindering your effects of becoming pregnant.
Your treatment at Acumedica may include one or more of the following; nutritional, dietary and lifestyles modifications to improve your fertility parameters, functional pathology testing, genetic testing, fertility supplements, chinese and western herbal medicines, temperature charting, cervical mucus observation, fertility and reproductive massage and/or acupuncture.
Our main aim is to support you each step of the way and teach you how to understand your body to maximise your health and fertility outcomes.
How Many Treatments
The key to a successful conception is building a strong foundation through the correct dietary and lifestyle changes. Conception can take 90-120 days, so what you are doing during this period will determine the health of the sperm and egg that will eventually become your child.
Treatment of infertility with acupuncture usually requires a commitment to enough time to re-balance the body. Generally 3 months of weekly acupuncture preconception care is required if you and your partner are in optimal health. If there are any health issues including menstrual or sperm anomalies, then treatment must proceed until a couple of normal cycles or sperm parameters improve. From there, you should give yourself at least 6 months to 12 months, to achieve pregnancy and this can also be longer for some couples but the wait is well worth it.
