Treatment during IVF cycles and assisted fertility

There is a growing body of evidence to show the effectiveness of acupuncture to support male and female reproductive health.

Acupuncture can be used as a support for all stages of IUI, IVF and assisted fertility treatments.

A recent study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) suggests that acupuncture given before and after embryo transfer might have a positive influence on treatment outcomes.

The evidence that acupuncture increases blood flow to the uterus, resulting in a thicker and more regular uterine lining, may explain increased rates of successful implantation. It is also shown to reduce stress levels, which is a major component of male and female subfertility.
