Acupuncture and IVF

At Viera Fertility Center, we know that we’re not simply treating the medical challenges causing infertility. We’re also dealing with your family’s hopes and dreams and your future. We know that the fertility treatment process is personal, emotional, and sometimes stressful (as well as exciting!).

In a Brazilian study, researchers discovered that acupuncture shows promise as an anxiety treatment for women undergoing IVF. The study excluded participants with a history of psychiatric illness or who were taking antidepressant or anti-anxiety drugs, so the data refers only to otherwise healthy women without a history of anxiety disorder.

Be sure to discuss your plans for acupuncture with Dr. Chamoun and the staff at Viera Fertility Center so that we may supervise treatment and coordinate efforts with your acupuncturist. During the treatment of infertility, it’s important for all of your practitioners to be on the same page with one plan.
