Acupuncture for IVF

Acupuncture is used as a supplementary treatment with IVF.
Since a German study in 2002 found that acupuncture significantly increased the odds of pregnancy in a group of 160 women undergoing IVF treatment, there has been increased support of IVF with acupuncture. Several studies have found that acupuncture helps relax the muscle tissue and increases blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, improving the chances of an embryo implanting. Acupuncture is now becoming a common procedure endorsed by a growing number of IVF fertility centers.
