Acupuncture increases pregnancy success rates of IVF

A recent research studied the effectiveness of acupuncture on pregnancy success rates for women undergoing in vitro fertilization. In this study, women with unexplained infertility were recruited. 36 women were in acupuncture group and they received 3 sessions of acupuncture treatment during IVF procedure. Pregnancy rates and anxiety levels were measured. The result has shown that clinical pregnancy, ongoing pregnancy, and live birth rates were higher in acupuncture group (23) compared to control group (12) which was nearly doubled; anxiety levels were lower in acupuncture group compared to control group. The conclusion is that three sessions of acupuncture before and after embryo transfer significantly increased the pregnancy rates in women with unexplained infertility and significantly reduced anxiety levels that occurred before embryo transfer.
