A recent study in Germany found that using acupuncture with IVF achieved a 42% clinical pregnancy rate in the test group compared to 26% in the control group that did not recieve acupuncture.
This study involved giving acupuncture shortly before and after embryo transfer. If acupuncture is given throughout the procedure of IVF then the rate can increase up to 60%.
A recent systematic review in the British Medical Journal concluded that this figure is as high as 65%. Click here for review and Here for review in The Times
