Acupuncture and Infertility

Comments Off on Acupuncture and Infertility

So what does WBZ 1030, the Marlborough Wellness Center, and the University of Maryland Medical School all have in common? They all have great research findings and information on improving infertility rates with the use of acupuncture!

“…Acupuncture has been used in China for centuries to regulate the female reproductive system. So researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and the VU University Amsterdam set out to determine whether acupuncture given with embryo transfer improves the rates of pregnancy and live birth among women undergoing in vitro fertilisation.

They reviewed seven trials involving 1,366 women undergoing in vitro fertilisation. The trials compared acupuncture, administered within one day of the embryo transfer procedure, with sham acupuncture or no additional treatment.

The overall quality of the trials was good and included a broad selection of women at various ages and with different causes and durations of infertility.

Complementing the embryo transfer process with acupuncture increased the odds of pregnancy by 65% compared to sham acupuncture or no additional treatment. In absolute terms, this means that 10 women would need to be treated with acupuncture to bring about one additional pregnancy.”
