Extensive Research on Acupuncture and IVF

Evidence links acupuncture with improved positive outcomes for those undergoing IVF and any assisted reproductive technologies.

In fact, providers such as Fertility Associates and Repromed actively recommend acupuncture for couples going through the process.

Australasia's leading provider is The Acupuncture IVF Support Clinic. They've compiled much of the research done in this area with the following conclusions:

The use of acupuncture used both pre- and post-embryo transfer has now been extensively researched, with largely positive results. See research.

Acupuncture has been shown to decrease anxiety around the IVF process and increase feelings of wellbeing and ability to cope with stress. See research.

Acupuncture has also been shown to increase blood flow to the uterus and ovaries. See research.
