    03/08/2008 - ACUPUNCTURE SHOWS PROMISE IN IMPROVING RATES OF PREGNANCY FOLLOWING IVF

    Posted By Administration, Saturday, March 08, 2008
    Updated: Friday, July 11, 2014

    [NCCAM] A review of seven clinical trials of acupuncture given with embryo transfer in women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) suggests that acupuncture may improve rates of pregnancy. An estimated 10 to 15 percent of couples experience reproductive difficulty and seek specialist fertility treatments, such as IVF. IVF, which involves retrieving a woman's egg, fertilizing it in the laboratory, and then transferring the embryo back into the woman's womb is an expensive, lengthy, and stressful process. Identifying a complementary approach that can improve success would be welcome to patients and providers.
