Onsite Acupuncture For Sound Fertility
Sound Fertility has partnered with Acupuncture Northwest & Associates to offer their patients access to onsite acupuncture before and after embryo transfer (ET).
Onsite Acupuncture For Embryo Transfer
The latest research shows that onsite acupuncture on the day of embryo transfer can improve success rates (Smith 2019). Onsite is what makes the difference. You have put so much time, energy and money to get to here, it makes sense to do everything you can to increase your chances of success.
How acupuncture helps on the day of IVF transfer:
- Increase success rates, optimize patient outcomes (Smith 2019)
- Reduce stress - decrease cortisol levels which is known to decrease "time to conceive" (Eshkevari 2013)
- Help patients have a good experience (Smith 2011, de Lacey 2009)

Here is what you need to do to get embryo transfer acupuncture at Sound Fertility:
Schedule your transfer acupuncture. Please let us know the date and time of your transfer, if you know. If your transfer time hasn't been set yet, schedule a time within a week or two of your transfer and Sound Fertility will let us know when it has been scheduled. That's all you need to do! We will then meet you at your transfer (located within Poma Fertility) and support you through your transfer.
On the day of ET, check in at the front desk one hour prior to your scheduled transfer.
The acupuncturist will bring you back for your pre-ET acupuncture. After your transfer, the acupuncturist will administer a second treatment. Acupuncture is a great addition to transfer day, for so many reasons.
