Undergoing IVF is an incredibly stressful time for couples; anxieties about costs, what it involves, hospital appointments and countless sleepless nights spent worrying about whether it will work or not all contribute to the feelings of tension and overwhelm.
Currently, 1 in 7 couples in the UK have difficulty conceiving naturally and may opt for IVF (in-vitro fertilisation) treatments. The process involves stimulating a woman’s egg production, removing several eggs and allowing sperm to fertilise them. The fertilised eggs are monitored for a few days before suitable ones are implanted back into the womb in the hope that a pregnancy will establish.
I see many women with menstrual and fertility issues in my Clinic and there is a lot I can do to support women – and men – through the IVF process.
Firstly, acupuncture can address the stressfulness of the procedures. Once you reach the point of needing IVF the chances are you have been trying to conceive for a long time and your lives have become focused on having a baby. The financial costs involved in IVF can be an additional worry as can taking time off work for hospital appointments. Many men hide their anxieties, feeling as though they don’t want to burden their partner with them when she is undergoing so many invasive and uncomfortable tests and medications.
