IVF Acupuncture

Acupuncture and herbal medicine can be an effective approach to preserving and stimulating fertility. Many studies suggest  that acupuncture increases blood flow to the uterus and promotes production of ovulation and fertility-regulating hormones, both of which should increase conception rates. A research on how acupuncture impact the IVF success rates compared women who did IVF alone and those who added 13-15 sessions of acupuncture during their IVF cycles. The results showed that women who added more acupuncture sessions were twice as likely to have a baby compared to women who did IVF alone.
