Dr. Deborah Corrente AP, DOM, CHT offers Acupuncture (needle or non-needle) and Integrative medicine treatments for both men and women whom are simply wanting to enhance their natural fertility and for those struggling with sub or infertility.

Her experience has shown that the right physical, nutritional, and emotional support before and during, and after the treatment can help to remove the stresses and strains and enhance overall health and well-being. Dr. Corrente's goal is to help keep you positive and in the right mind-set, while maximizing your fertility. When you come in for your initial consultation she will establish what course of treatment is best for you and your situation.  

Her Fertility treatment plans range from:
  •  IVF pre-conception (a course of treatment that leads up to and through IVF transfer);
  •  Treatments on the day of embryo transfer itself;
  • Treatments continuing after embryo transfer to ensure a healthy pregnancy.
Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine (IM) is a evidence based therapy that has been shown to support fertility alone and/or improve pregnancy rates when used in combination with western fertility treatments such as IVF, IUI, ICSI or other therapies.

Studies have found that acupuncture & IM may improve fertility rates by:

  •     Increasing pelvic blood flow to the uterus and ovaries
  •     Reducing stress related hormones
  •     Increasing nourishment to the uterine lining
  •     Reducing uterine contractions
  •     Improving response to hormonal stimulation
  •     Promoting relaxation

Acupuncture for IVF Pre and Post Embryo Transfer

IVF Pre and Post acupuncture treatment protocol consists of two treatments, the first one is before transfer and the second after transfer. A recent meta-analysis (Manheimer E), published by the British Medical Journal in February 2008, suggests that women undergoing IVF, who also have acupuncture on the day of embryo transfer, have a substantially higher chance of conceiving than those who have no acupuncture.

Acupuncture during the medicated and stimulation phase of IUI or IVF
Clinical trials have shown that acupuncture performed in preparation for your IVF cycle increases blood flow to the uterus and ovaries and regulates the fertility hormones, which may contribute to setting the stage for follicular development and increased implantation. As well as maximizing your fertility, our treatment also helps to ease the symptoms associated with IVF medication and alleviating stress.

Acupuncture & Integrative medicine Pre-conception Program for IUI, IVF or any assisted reproductive treatments.
These treatments are in preparation for your IUI or IVF cycle. Clinical trials have shown that acupuncture  & IM performed in preparation for your IUI or IVF cycle increases blood flow to the uterus and ovaries and regulates the fertility hormones, which may contribute to setting the stage for follicular development and increased implantation. To optimize your results, ideally we would like to see you at least three months before your IVF cycle is due to begin. However, there are still plenty of useful things we can do to help if the interval is shorter. We prescribe 1-2 treatments per week up to egg retrieval plus treatment at the time of embryo transfer.

Acupuncture & Integrative medicine for IUI & IVF support offers you a natural way to optimize your fertility during the critical 4-6 months before you begin an assisted cycle. Our IUI & IVF Integrative medicine preconception programs goal is to help your body to be in the best condition possible to conceive before you try IVF.

We offer evidence based acupuncture to help support a women’s body in welcoming and nourishing an embryo prior to a during a IUI, IVF or ICSI cycle. Ideally for men and women, we recommend starting acupuncture & IM 3 months prior to your cycle, however acupuncture & IM offers benefits when integrated at any point in the treatment cycle.  

Recommended Schedule:
  •     3 months prior to IUI or IVF cycle: weekly acupuncture for women and or men
  •     Current IUI or IVF cycle pre egg retrieval: twice weekly acupuncture
  •     Day of embryo transfer: acupuncture pre and post transfer (at VFC)
  •     48 hours post embryo transfer (if required)
  •     5 Days post transfer
