Fertility Acupuncture for IVF/ICSI/IUI

Fertility Acupuncture is a non-invasive adjunctive treatment that can be used in preparation and during Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs) to help support various reproductive functions. Fertility Acupuncture continues to get more attention as scientific research has demonstrated that it may help improve pregnancy rates and has a strong safety profile when used during In-Vitro-Fertilization (IVF) and Intracytoplasmic Injection (ICSI). Fertility Acupuncture can also be used to support Intrauterine Insemination (IUI).
