37 year old receptionist working in the city. 

Presenting symptoms:

Patient had trouble conceiving naturally for over two years. She came for acupuncture assistance to support her first IVF cycle.


Patient had been incredibly calm throughout her IVF cycle, her ovulation went according to plan. High quality eggs were harvested followed by successful implantation. She was pregnant with twins!

Dietary & lifestyle change:

Warm, home cooked meals and lots of fresh fruits were suggested. 


"Thank you Ivy! 

I will recommend you to any of my friends looking for acupuncture."

Ivy's thoughts:

The steroids used during IVF cycle can cause imbalance of internal hormones and induce stress related symptoms such as mood swing, sleeplessness. Acupuncture is a good natural treatment to support women through this process, optimising the treatment outcome. I recommend women start acupuncture a couple of menstrual cycles before commencing IVF treatments to make sure their body is in optimal condition and ensure success of such high cost treatment.
