Assisting IVF with CHM & Acupuncture

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is one of Assisted Reproduction Techniques (ART). It is a procedure, used to overcome a range of fertility issues, by which an egg and sperm are joined together outside the body, in a specialized laboratory.

First report by Stener-Victorin et al. in 1999 suggested acupuncture can increase the clinical pregnancy rate (CPR) of IVF. After then many meta-analyses of randomized controlled trials (RCT) indicated that acupuncture, especially around the time of the controlled ovarian hyperstimulation, improves pregnancy outcomes in women undergoing IVF.
