For hundreds of years, acupuncture has been treating fertility issues in traditional Asian cultures. And even Western medicine is beginning to recognize the efficacy of acupuncture; in 2003, the first study appeared showing that acupuncture improved IVF success rates when performed directly before and after embryo transfer. These results have since been replicated numerous times, including a large meta-analysis which found that across multiple studies, complementing an embryo transfer with acupuncture is associated with significant increases in pregnancy and live birth rates (Manheimer et al, British Medical Journal, 2008).

These results show conclusively that acupuncture can significantly increase your chances of getting pregnant during embryo transfer - regardless of whether you are using your own eggs or donor eggs.


How does it work? Acupuncture helps fertility by:

  • Calming your body and nervous system
  • Improving blood flow to your ovaries and uterus
  • Relaxing uterine spasms - correlated with improved pregnancy rates
  • Lowering your stress level
