Acupuncture and Fertility
Center for Integrative Medicine (TCIM)
Women or couples under care at Advanced Reproductive Medicine for infertility and other gynecologic problems have easy access to The Center for Integrative Medicine (TCIM). TCIM is located in the 5th floor of the medical center on the Anschutz campus. The practitioners, physicians, acupuncturists, and others meet with the patient to determine the most effective approach and work closely with ARM physicians.
For IVF, we have a protocol involving acupuncture prior to and following the embryo transfer to improve uterine blood flow. In small studies, this has shown to be effective in increasing pregnancy rates. Simultaneously, we offer a massage for the patient’s partner, if desired. Speak to your Advanced Reproductive Medicine physician if you are interested in these alternatives.
These services are charged separately from our IVF packages.
