Acupuncture / fertility: the scientific basis

  • Scientific studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of acupuncture in improving fertility. A meta-analysis of 27 studies published in 2018 concluded that acupuncture significantly increased the pregnancy rate in women undergoing IVF or IUI.


  • In addition to regulating the menstrual cycle and nourishing the uterus, acupuncture can improve sperm quality in men, which can also increase the chances of conception.


  • In addition to relieving nausea, acupuncture can help prevent miscarriage by reducing stress and improving blood flow to the uterus.


  • Acupuncture can also be beneficial for women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a condition that can make it more difficult to conceive due to hormonal imbalance. Acupuncture can help regulate hormone levels and improve ovarian function in women with PCOS.


  • Acupuncture can be used to prevent premature labor and to facilitate labor during delivery. Studies have shown that women who received acupuncture before delivery had shorter labor times and fewer complications.


  • Acupuncture can also help relieve pregnancy-related pain and discomfort, such as back pain, headaches, heavy legs and hemorrhoids.


  • Acupuncture can be used to help women produce breast milk and to treat breastfeeding disorders such as breast engorgement and sore nipples.
