Try Acupuncture...It Works

Acupuncture and Herbs For Treatment of  Infertility, Endometriosis, and Menstrual Cycle Disorders.

European Research Study proves that acupuncture increases pregnancy rates for women undergoing In-Vitro Fertilization.  The study concludes that acupuncture seems to be a useful tool for improving pregnancy rate after ART. This study has been reported on the national news and in US medical journals, prompting an increase in referrals from medical doctors for the use of acupuncture in IVF procedures.  

Two groups totalling 160 subjects, each received a standard in-vitro procedure (IVF). One group, however, also received acupuncture therapy before and after implantation. The non acupuncture in-vitro group had a 26.3% pregnancy rate, while the group of women who received acupuncture showed a 42.5% success rate.
