Recent scientific studies support the utilization of fertility acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine as a treatment for infertility, and other reproductive disorders. This growing body of evidence demonstrates that fertility acupuncture, and other TCM protocols, can improve fertility rates by enhancing physiological processes related to fertility.
Fertility acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be used to help prepare for, and enhance, conception in ART cycles for IVF, IUI and other ART protocols. Fertility acupuncture has been shown to improve fertility rates when used as a complementary therapy for IVF preparation and to support IVF treatment protocols.
Fertility acupuncture may benefit those undergoing IVF and other ART treatments by lessening many unwanted side effects, mitigating some negative effects of IVF stimulation, and enhancing implantation and pregnancy rates.
