Egg Preservation


Have a Healthy Pregnancy when the Time is Right for You

Use acupuncture and Chinese Medicine at The Nest Chicago to improve the quality of your eggs and get the most out of the Egg Preservation process.

Take your pregnancy timeline into your own hands.

No one but you is in charge of your timeline. Not your parents, who keep asking about grandbabies. Not your friends, who ask when you'll "start trying". Not your career, which expects you to wait until the next promotion or "break" in busy seasons.

You can own your own timeline when you have high quality eggs preserved for when you're ready to start your family.

Sleeping Baby


I have been going to The Nest for just over a year now and cannot say enough good things about my experiences there.
I sought out The Nest because of issues with infertility.
Jen has been helping me navigate through these issues with a combination of acupuncture and herbal supplements and even recommended my current IVF doctor. She’s absolutely wonderful and I look forward to my visits each week. I can’t wait until the day I can walk into the Nest and tell them that I’m pregnant.

Baby's Grasp


I have had personal experience with Jen and Julie and they are both just great. They have rescued my family many a times when we were sick by providing us with individualized care and herbs that help promote healing and natural recovery from illness while regulating temperature and infection if needed. (Side Note: My son has never even had to have Tylenol because of these wonderful ladies and their comprehensive herbs). I could literally go on and on but I will stop and say, you will not regret your experience:)

While there are many women who go here for fertility and pregnancy acupuncture,I chose to go to The Nest in Lincoln Square because I wanted a TCM practictioner who understands women's health concerns and who specializes in them.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does acupuncture help with egg preservation?

Acupuncture can help regulate the menstrual cycle, improve blood flow to the ovaries and uterus, reduce stress and anxiety, and support overall reproductive health. All of these factors can improve the success of the egg preservation process.

What's the recommended number of acupuncture treatments to undergo before Egg Preservation?

The frequency of acupuncture treatments can vary depending on your individual circumstances and goals for fertility. In general, most patients may receive acupuncture treatments once or twice a week leading up to the egg retrieval procedure, and then continue with treatments as needed after the procedure.

Can acupuncture help reduce the side effects of fertility medications used during the egg preservation process?

Yes, acupuncture can help reduce the side effects of fertility medications, such as bloating, pain, headaches, and mood swings. This can make the egg preservation process more comfortable for you.
