"There is growing evidence that acupuncture can greatly increase a woman's chance of becoming pregnant...Two weeks ago Eric Manheimer from the University of Maryland published an authoritative review of acupuncture's effect on IVF treatment in the British Medical Journal [and] found that genuine acupuncture could increase a woman's chance of pregnancy by 65%."

Acupuncture for Fertility & Conception

fertility treatment in ruislip middlesexCan Chinese Medicine increase fertility?

Reviewing new trends in Infertility Treatment, WebMD points out that among the most frequently tried complementary techniques to achieve pregnancy are acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. 'Acupuncture and other complementary treatments may ease a woman's stress and that is always helpful in achieving pregnancy', says Dr Guy Ringler, a reproductive endocrinologist, adding, 'and it's not known to have any harmful effects.'

According to the American Pregnancy Association ...

'Acupuncture, frequently combined with herbal medicine, has been used for centuries to treat some but not all causes of infertility. Acupuncture is similar to physical therapy in that it is a process-oriented method of medical intervention. It is better to do more than less. Patients are commonly treated for three to four months before progressing to insemination, in-vitro fertilization (IVF), or donor-egg transfer. This pacing of treatment seems to have a therapeutic effect.'

In a study by Stener-Victorin et al from the Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology Fertility Centre, Scandinavia and University of Gothenburg, women are encouraged to receive acupuncture treatments pre-and post-embryo transfer. Clinical observations from the Berkley Center for Reproductive Wellness suggest that the most effective fertility treatments involve a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, and traditional medicine.
