My patients and many others sometime want to know what is the difference between IVF and acupuncture in infertility treatments.
Actually, the difference is significant.
1. IVF, using artificial procedure to help the infertility couple to get baby(s). It is a procedure with the external help(doctors) and get “pregnancy”, like a game. And, sometime, using donor’s egg or sperm. The result could know in one month. If you see the patient has bleeding after some days post the procedure(embryo transferring), the IVF is failed.
2. Acupuncture, adjusts the hormones and improving the function, which makes patient become a normal people. And then she could get pregnancy in any cycle.
Yesterday, one patient told me she got pregnancy after our acupuncture treatments.
