You Are Not Alone: The Journey From Preconception To Pregnancy
Whether you're experiencing challenges conceiving or carrying a pregnancy to term, it can often feel like a long and lonely road. You may be receiving fertility assistance through Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) and are about to start an IUI or IVF cycle, or perhaps you're in the middle of one. Or you are trying without assistance. You may have read or heard that certain supplements or herbs can help, but you aren't sure which are appropriate for you and when. Perhaps you visited a Reproductive Endocrinologist who ran a multitude of tests but didn't find anything wrong. What now? We can help.
Nikoo provides holistic support and informed, compassionate care from preconception to pregnancy and beyond. Her own experiences with conceiving her children after the age of 35 led her to an interest in treating fertility challenges due to "advanced age" and diminished ovarian reserve. She has successfully treated many types of fertility challenges including:
Advanced Maternal Age
Recurrent Pregnancy Loss
Male factor Infertility
Fertility Treatment and Coaching: What To Expect
We utilize acupuncture, nutritional therapy, lifestyle recommendations, herbs, and supplements to reduce stress, optimize the body's hormonal system, increase blood flow to the pelvic organs, improve egg and sperm quality, improve endometrial lining, and encourage healthy embryo implantation. If ART is being used, the aim is also to reduce side effects of medications and help the body relax before and after procedures. We can help you navigate the vast and confusing world of natural supplements, as well as provide guidance in tracking the menstrual cycle and learning to identify optimal timing for intercourse, if needed. Our bodies often provide clues and cues which can help us identify our "fertile window."
Fertility support often requires acupuncture treatments at least once per week or more. It is ideal to start treatment at least 3 months prior to trying to conceive. We often recommend both partners to be treated, if possible. If an IUI or IVF procedure is planned, it can be beneficial to receive one to two treatments the day of the procedure, as well as during the 3 months leading up to the procedure. We tailor your treatments according to your specific, unique needs and circumstances.
"I came to Nikoo and Guest House Acupuncture because I didn't know where else to go, after my medical doctor could not help me regain my cycle to get healthy. This was the first time I had ever considered or tried acupuncture. From the moment I met Nikoo, I felt like she truly cared about me. I can say with absolute certainty that Nikoo is the reason I am so healthy today. In addition to helping me to make some changes in my lifestyle, Nikoo's acupuncture treatments helped to bring my cycle back. And eventually, I also got pregnant, while under her care. I look forward to every single visit, because she is so caring, so knowledgable, and she makes all of her patients feel like they have hope. Acupuncture is LIFE-CHANGING! It's like therapy! Go see Nikoo today, as she can help you with nearly any ailment you have in your life, including plain old stress! If I could give her more than five stars, I would! :) "
