A recent systematic review by Qian et al found that acupuncture may improve the clinical pregnancy rate of women undergoing IVF.

Acupuncture during an IVF cycle may improve the clinical pregnancy rate
From our clinic rooms in Highett in the Bayside area of Melbourne, we offer supportive acupuncture to both women and men undergoing IVF. Our programs can involve treatment at any given stage of an IVF cycle – from a complete preconception care and full supportive program, to transfer date and egg collection treatments, and emotional and physical supportive treatment.
We believe that IVF fertility acupuncture is beneficial for anyone undergoing IVF but your medical practitioner/IVF specialist may recommend IVF acupuncture when you have:
Multiple failed embryo transfers
Poor egg or sperm quality
Thin endometrial lining
Low follicle numbers
Stress or emotional imbalance
How our naturopathic programs can support you during your IVF:
Support health of eggs and sperm
Improve circulation to support follicle development
Address any nutritional insufficiencies and improve energy/wellbeing
Educate on diet and lifestyle to improve overall health during IVF cycles
