Fertility & IVF Support
Acubalance is famously known for our multidisciplinary approach helping you to reach your peak fertility potential whether you are trying to conceive naturally or through IVF.
We were the first clinic to offer IVF Acupuncture as well as laser acupuncture onsite at the local IVF clinics on transfer day in Vancouver, British Columbia. We have been leaders in integrative fertility care, and Acubalance’s clinical director, Dr Lorne Brown, continues to pioneer using laser (LLLT) & photobiomodulation for fertility to support optimal egg quality and uterine lining receptivity.
Update June 2018: Acubalance's onsite laser acupuncture treatment protocol on IVF transfer day for Comprehensive Chromosome Screened (CCS) embryos had a higher pregnancy rate and lower miscarriage rate than embryos that did not receive Acubalance treatments on site at Olive Fertility. All transferred embryos were chromosomally tested to be normal. We were looking to see if the Acubalance protocol helped with uterine receptivity and implantation. Olive did a retrospective analysis for the period January 2016 to March 2018 of FET transfers that were screened for normal chromosomes. They compared those who had onsite Acubalance laser acupuncture to those who did not. Patients did better with the Acubalance onsite IVF laser acupuncture treatments than without for chromosomally normal transferred embryos.
Fertility and IVF Support - How We Work
At Acubalance, our fertility and IVF support process starts with an in-depth fertility audit where we take your detailed history and we provide both conventional and functional medicine testing to uncover underlying factors that may be preventing you from conceiving or maintaining a healthy pregnancy. This applies to your partner as well if you have a male partner and you want to use his sperm.
Whether you’ve been diagnosed with high FSH, low AMH, have experienced repeated IVF failures, miscarriages, PCOS, endometriosis or have been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, we offer a full fertility audit to determine where these subtle and not so subtle imbalances lie so we can correct them.
Working hand-in-hand with you and your medical doctor fertility specialist, we help you navigate your fertility journey and support you in choosing your best treatment options.
