There have been several studies investigating the use of acupuncture to improve the outcome of in vitro fertilisation (IVF). The highest quality and most conclusive studies done are the four Randomised Controlled trials (RCT) completed between the year of 2002–2006 (Rosenthal. L, 2007).

Three of the RCTs present evidence suggesting acupuncture session before and after the embryo transfer can significantly improve the success of IVF compare to non Acupuncture group with significantly higher implantation rates (14.2% vs 5.9%), clinical pregnancy rates (33.6% vs 15.6%), biochemical pregnancy rates (35.3% vs 16.5%), and ongoing pregnancy rates (28.4% vs 13.8%).

The length of the treatment varies in each case but we recommend regular acupuncture treatment around injection and transfer phase of IVF which may help reduce physical stress assist your IVF cycle.
