Acupuncture during IVF increases rates of implantation, pregnancies & births

A 2018 systematic review of good quality research (24 RCTs) further supports the evidence showing acupuncture to be beneficial during IVF. Out of 5,807 patients, statistically significant improvements were seen in rates of embryo implantation, clinical pregnancies and live births, when compared with routine IVF care. Positive trends in these outcomes were also seen when acupuncture was given during the stimulation phase of an IVF cycle (FSH injections) and around egg retrieval, indicating its cumulative effect and dose dependent response.
