Using acupuncture as an adjunct to naturopathic and medical treatment for infertility has been clinically shown to improve pregnancy rates. The following article was written by a women who underwent treatment for infertility herself and while the study quoted was published back in 2002, there are many more recent studies showing the same data. In 2006 from the May edition of the Journal of Fertility and Sterility, a prospective, randomized trial showed that a statistically significant outcome occurred when acupuncture was used on the day of embryo implantation with IVF patients. In my practice, I have a focus on family planning and infertility. Combining acupuncture with treatment of the underlying cause of fertility concerns has helped many of my patients achieve a successful pregnancy.
