How many sessions of acupuncture do you need for fertility?

We often get asked “How long does it take for fertility acupuncture to work?” And while each individual journey is different. The fertility acupuncture treatment plan will also vary

How many sessions does it take for acupuncture to work?

Initial consultation

After your first treatment you will start to feel the effects of acupuncture. You should generally expect to see improvements in the first three treatments.

 

Care plan

In your initial consultation, your acupuncturist will outline your care plan. This will include the frequency of visits expected for best possible outcomes.

Frequency of treatments

Typically our patients are receiving treatments 2 to 3 times per week for the first 4 weeks. Then once a week for the remainder of the care plan. This varies between individuals. Particularly during a course of IVF treatment.

Why are we the best for fertility acupuncture in Melbourne?

Many IVF centres recommend fertility acupuncture to support fertility treatments such as IVF. As quoted on Monash IVF website “This can reportedly assist with menstruation and ovulation, and also help to reduce stress”.

However, there are different specialists for different conditions. This also applies to Acupuncturists. Here at Sustain Health we are the leading experts in fertility acupuncture. We have been supporting couples and individuals for almost 20 years. Whether they are starting or growing their family.

All our practitioners have a minimum of 6 years experience in fertility acupuncture and are led by our Chief Acupuncturist & Chinese Medicine Practitioner, Dr Scott Ling. Who holds a Master’s of Reproductive Medicine from UNSW.

While we are results driven, we not only push for the end result of successfully helping you achieve your pregnancy. But we also lay down the foundations for you to get to your end result. This includes treating you as an individual and not just looking at your fertility.
