The main take away points for this article (below) is that whatever protocol is used should be specific and individualized to you. As this article states, there is no difference in pregnancy or live birth rates between a fresh or frozen IVF embryo transfer. The problem arises when certain clinics decide to run their practices by exclusively doing one or the other. There are pros and cons to both and it is important for the Reproductive Endocrinologists to take the time to review your case and figure out what is best for YOU! This is where alternative medicines, such as acupuncture and traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has it’s strength. We take the time to sit down with our patients and get to know them and their unique bodies. We ask questions about their menstrual cycle and any hormonal issues, but we also take into consideration their bodily function as a whole (sleep, stress, digestion, bowel movements, appetite, emotional state, etc). This is important because sometimes the answers lie outside the reproductive system and by creating an acupuncture treatment that is tailored to their specific body constitution patients are more likely to respond to treatment with their fertility clinic (IUI, IVF or other ART).
