Testing for evaluating fertility may involve tracking basal body temperatures, cervical mucous, and hormone testing at specific times throughout the female cycle via blood/urine/saliva. Male patients may have hormonal testing via blood/urine/saliva and a semen analysis. The cost of tests vary.
Pelvic ultrasounds, scrotal ultrasounds, and saline sonohysterograms previously ordered from your medical doctor will be reviewed. These diagnostic techniques will be discussed with you if they will be beneficial for your fertility work-up.
If you require acupuncture, sessions are 45-60 minutes in length and cost $53.
When IUI/IVF is not required, you are often scheduled for sessions once a week.
When using acupuncture to increase success with IUI/IVF, studies show that acupuncture is more effective when started in the cycle prior to the cycle the procedure will take place and ending shortly after the procedure. Female patients receive 6-8 acupuncture sessions during IUI/IVF cycles.
For female patients, sessions are scheduled according to the timing of the period, hcg injection (aka "trigger shot"), ovulation or insemination, egg retrieval, and embryo transfer.
