Am I able to combine TCM therapeutic treatments and western medicine to treat my infertility problem?Eu Yan Sang TCM Pregnancy
I am a female in my thirties. I’m currently seeing a gynaecologist but I am thinking of exploring TCM options to treat my infertility problem. Could you please advise me if I am able to do them concurrently?
Thanks for the D2D. Yes, you're able to combine TCM therapeutic treatments and western medicine to treat my infertility problem.
Many of my patients seek help from both Chinese and Western medicine to treat infertility. It is common for patients to take Chinese and western medicine concurrently. Many receive TCM treatments while undergoing IVF or IUI procedure.
TCM and western medicine can work hand in hand to increase the chance of patient getting pregnant. Studies have also shown that acupuncture improves pregnancy rates in women undergoing IVF.
But make sure to communicate with the doctors to let them know the medication and treatment that you are taking. And also, observe a 2-hour interval between consumption of herbal medication and western medication, so as to prevent any drug-herb interaction.
