The studies about acupuncture’s effectiveness in improving pregnancy rates continue to emerge. The newest one that I just read concludes that acupuncture improves clinical pregnancy rates and live birth rates for women receiving IVF (in vitro fertilization). In another, live births significantly increased when acupuncture was administered near the time of either oocyte aspiration or controlled ovarian hyper-stimulation. And a third reported that acupuncture helps to prevent egg implantation failure. Read more about the research here.
