Case Study: Preparation for FET/ IVF Transfer

A 42-year-old female came to ilumina in preparation for her second transfer, after treatments with ilumina and a successful transfer two years prior. She previously had embryos frozen and her hope was to have a second child.  She was also looking for support with her stress, sleep and energy level.  

Chinese Medicine Treatment:

Acupuncture treatments were twice weekly for one month before transfer in total of eight treatments, and a Chinese Medicine Formula three times a day. Chinese medicine-based dietary changes were made, and nighttime relaxation techniques were implemented. Pre and Post transfer acupuncture was performed onsite at the patient’s fertility clinic.

Results:

Positive Pregnancy test.
Patient reported lower stress levels throughout the preparation for the transfer, and increased energy. Acupuncture was continued five days after transfer, and prenatal massage.
