Acupuncture for Fertility

Couples in the UK are coming to realise more often how help is unlikely to come from the NHS in terms of fertility treatments. Despite couples being allowed to wait up to two years for a round of IVF treatment on the NHS, there are various criteria you must meet to qualify. Couples where one of the partners already has a child are usually excluded, there can be age exclusions for females and in the end it can come down to something as basic as funding.

Acupuncture for fertilityAt Acupuncture That Works we have been working with couples for a number of years and have been really fortunate to witness the birth of some lovely babies.

We use the Paulus Protocol, which was first reported back in 2001 and came from a randomised clinical trial to investigate the effectiveness of acupuncture on pregnancy rates.

The procedure is fairly simply and focuses on a needling handful of key ‘points’ which are needled at different times before and after IVF treatments.
