Dawit Assefa, L.Ac, MAOM – Acupuncture Fertility & Women's Clinic


IVF Clinics

  • Dominion Fertility – Dr DiMattina is the doctor I recommend @ Dominion. They are really the only clinic in the area which specialize in natural IVF. This approach is ideal for women with low ovarian reserve (high FSH and low AMH). They do stimulated IVF’s as well.
  • CCRM – This clinic is renowned in the country and they have a reputation for having the best labs. CCRM started off in Colorado but other satellite clinics have popped up in the country and we have one right here in Tyson’s Corner.
  • Shady Grove – Shady Grove is the most popular IVF clinic in the area. They strictly do stimulated IVF’s for the most part.


  • ABORM – The American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine is an organization pioneering best practices in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in the field of reproductive medicine. If you are seeking a clinician that specializes in reproductive medicine using Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, you can look up the list of practitioners from all over the country.


  • Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler – I recommend all my patients, particularly women to read this book so that they can better understand their cycle.
  • Beyond the Pill: A 30 Day Program to Balance Your Hormones, Reclaim Your Body, and Reverse the Dangerous Side Effects of the Birth Control Pill by Jolene Brighten – A book that gives alternative insight into the birth control pill and how to recover from the effects of the pill.
  • Period Repair Manual – This book can help women who are suffering with menstrual/hormonal issues.
