Acupuncture for IVF Patients

Acupuncture increases the chances of becoming pregnant for a significant number of women undergoing in-vitro fertilization (IVF), according to a study published in the medical journal Fertility and Sterility in April 2002.

Acupuncture can increase pregnancy rates for IVF patients by:

  • Increasing the blood flow to the reproductive organs, this dramatically improves a woman’s response to the hormonal therapy; by increasing blood flow to the uterus. The embryos have a better environment after transfer.
  • Regulating the hormone levels by moderating the release of beta-endorphin levels in the brain, which improves the release of the gonadotrophin. By releasing hormones made from the hypothalamus and the follicle-stimulating hormone from the pituitary gland, estrogen and progesterone levels will positively affect ovaries.
  • Improving the function of the ovaries which allows the development better quality eggs and embryos.
  • Moderating cyclooxygenase and prostaglandin levels in the uterus, reducing uterine motility to improve implantation rates.
  • Thickening the uterine lining, if it is too thin.
  • Reducing stress and hyperactive sympathetic nervous system responses.
  • Lessening the side effects of the medications.
  • In males, improving semen quality and quantity.

The Research

Compared to the national average, Dr. Wang at the Acupuncture & Infertility Center experiences a much higher percentage of success in pregnancy rates. we have using acupuncture treated 163 IVF patients Between January of 2010 to June of 2014, with an overall 65.6% pregnancy rate per embryo transfer (for all ages). On average, the pregnancy rate per embryo transfer for the IVF patients who came from different infertility clinic receiving acupuncture treatment in our office is doubled the national pregnancy rate (2011 Assisted Reproductive Technology National Summary Report). Below is the full chart and graph of the data divided by age group.

The increased pregnancy rates in the acupuncture patients are significant. It is strongly suggested that women with advanced maternal age include acupuncture as part of their IVF treatment plan, since it has been shown to double their chances of becoming pregnant.
