It will take the body at least 12 weeks to respond to infertility treatments. For women, the body needs a minimum of 3 months to normalize hormonal imbalances while maturation and selection of oocytes (eggs) takes about 0 to 90 days. The 3 month minimum period is especially important for women undergoing Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) like IVF.
Studies have shown the benefit of optimizing a woman’s endocrine system at least 90 days prior to any transfer procedures. It is during this time that her follicles are developing and consequently the best time to improve the quality of her follicles verses only focusing on increasing the follicular quantity.
For men, sperm generation will take 90 days as well. During this period, any reproductive abnormalities, including low sperm count, motility, or morphology issue is addressed.
Do note that the above requirements are in the minimum. Other patients will require more time to respond to infertility treatments. For couples looking for either ongoing or complimentary support, we can customize each treatment to suit specific western treatments.
For patients undergoing IVF treatments, we recommended a shorter period of time with increased infertility treatment frequency to accommodate the treatment plan used at their medical doctor’s office. Although many couples feel that their time is running out, which is quite understandable, we will not try to force a result. Our approach is designed to work harmoniously with the mind and the body to create an environment conducive for a healthy, successful pregnancy.
Upon initial consultation and tests, we carefully formulate the best treatments for a specific patient. Each patient responds to treatment differently, which is why our treatments take several weeks before positive effects are seen or felt.
