I did acupuncture 30 minutes before and immediately after on our first IVF and I'm 6 weeks pregnant. Can't say acupuncture made the difference but I did it because several friends were successful on second attempt when acupuncture was the only added change to the cycle.  I spoke with me RE about it and he recommended it as well.

Published research (I searched pubmed before ivf) shows that accupuncture does not improve probability of success during ivf but it does help you relax.
Good luck!
