Acupuncture & Infertility
On the popular television series “Sex In The City”, two of the characters had trouble getting pregnant and went to go see an acupuncturist. It seems the characters knew something that many people having trouble getting pregnant may not know – acupuncture can improve the outcome of in vitro fertilization.
A controlled random clinical study at the IVF center at the University of Witten/Herdecke in Germany examined 225 people undergoing in vitro fertilization. One group of 116 patients received acupuncture according to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine. The second group of 109 people received placebo acupuncture. The treatment group had a significantly higher clinical pregnancy rate than the placebo group.
Another study, conducted at a fertility clinic in Denmark found that the pregnancy rate was significantly higher when women received acupuncture compared to a control group who received no acupuncture. The researchers concluded that acupuncture improved the outcome of in vitro fertilization.
