regulating your cycle for ici with donor sperm
At home inseminations require study, accurate timing and loving care. Establishing solid fertility cycle knowledge before beginning conception attempts is helpful to reduce stress and increase the likelihood of success. Acupuncture, Chinese herbal therapy and abdominal massage work to build a strong foundation for good follicle quality, improved pelvic blood flow for implantation and the prevention of miscarriage. Since follicle development starts 120 days prior to ovulation and implantation occurs 7-12 days after ovulation, one can see the importance of preparation & continual care.
Acupuncture and abdominal massage during menstruation reduce inflammation, clear residual endometrial tissue and set a good hormonal baseline. During the follicular phase treatments focus on optimal blood flow to ovaries, improving follicle quality and establishing a strong uterine lining. Acupuncture after insemination encourages implantation and embryo growth hopefully resulting in a positive pregnancy test.
