What is complementary treatment and IVF?

Complementary or adjuvant therapy is additional treatment that can be considered during IVF treatment with the aim of trying to increase pregnancy success, particularly in women who have had multiple unsuccessful IVF cycles.

Complementary or alternative therapies are used by many people to improve their overall physical and emotional health. This could include medicines, such as herbal, vitamin, mineral, homoeopathic, nutritional and other supplements and therapies such as Chinese medicine, chiropractic, naturopathy, osteopathy, acupuncture, homoeopathy, reflexology and aromatherapy.

IVF is a highly successful treatment option for many forms of infertility, however sometimes it takes multiple attempts before success and this can be frustrating. The most important factor impacting the success of IVF is a woman’s age and the genetic quality of her eggs. Other contributing factors include quality of sperm and the uterine ‘environment.’
