Acupuncture during IUI – Intrauterine insemination

During an IUI cycle, acupuncture can help increase conception rates by increasing the blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, improving the effectiveness of any medications used, and by assisting in the development of follicles and the uterine lining. Acupuncture also helps to address uterine spasm around the time of potential implantation and can treat any side effects that arise from the fertility drugs.

We usually see patients doing IUI once a week, depending on individual cases we may increase the frequency if required.
