This panel will discuss whether to use Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM) in conjunction Acupuncture in your patients utilizing IUI or IVF.  When is the best time to start this therapy, in preconception care before starting the IUI or IVF, or also while your patients are doing the IUI/IVF Cycle?  Are there TCM Patterns of Disharmony that you find CHM more effective in helping patients undergoing IUI/IVF? If so, which are they and why?  If you are prescribing CHM to your patients doing IUI/IVF, do you communicate this to their REI?  And if the REI has questions/concerns about herb/drug interactions, how do you explain this to them?  Or if you don’t use CHM in your patients undergoing IUI/IVF, why not?
