ACUPUNCTURE FOR FERTILITY COLORADO SPRINGS

Natural pregnancy

Whether you are planning to use high tech fertility treatments, or take the more natural approach, acupuncture can increase your chances of achieving a pregnancy and a Take Home Baby Acupuncture uses the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as herbal prescriptions for maintaining a balanced system. Our goal is to allow patients to conceive naturally. By strengthening the patient’s health, it allows the inborn ability of conception to take place. A healthy more balanced body will conceive more naturally. Many women feel a sense that their “biological clock” is running out, it stands to reason that pregnancy is more likely to occur in a “healthy” 40 year old versus an “unhealthy” 40 year old.

It will take more than three months to improve the quality of oocytes. Acupuncture and Herbal therapy can improve the oocytes by bathing them in a soup of nourishing blood and Qi.

This doesn’t mean lost time; it means giving your body a head start. If you do not conceive naturally and decide to use ART, IVF or IUI; you can rest assured that the time spent on improving your health will give you the best possible outcome and that is a Take Home Baby (THB).

Don’t forget healthy egg plus healthy sperm = Healthy Baby.

I would never show up at the starting line of a Triathlon without having “trained”. My goal is more than getting to the start line, the finish line is my reward; for you it is a baby.

What is IUI? Intrauterine insemination is also called IUI or artificial insemination.

This is a lower technology used for some types of infertility. Typically oral and or injectable stimulation medications will be used to enhance ovulation.

IVF

IVF is the process of using injectable medication to stimulate the ovaries to produce lots of eggs/oocytes.

The body can only produce enough of these hormones to feed one or two oocytes that then mature and is ovulated. IVF is a process by which the Doctor feeds your eggs more hormones so they can be nourished and mature.Eggs are removed from your ovaries and mixed with sperm in a laboratory culture dish. Fertilization takes place in this dish, “in vitro”, which means “in glass”

IVF is appropriate for some types in infertility.

  • Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes.
  • If your partner has a problem with his sperm.
    • Major problems are better treated by using ICSI Intracytoplasmic sperm injection
  • If you have tried fertility drugs, such as Clomiphene, Femara and other fertility treatment such as IUI, without success.
