Isthmus Wellness has been supporting IVF treatments since 2005 and works closely with multiple reproductive clinics in the Midwest.
Getting Pregnant with IVF and Acupuncture
In 2002 A German fertility clinic published groundbreaking research Influence of acupuncture on the pregnancy rates in patients who underwent assisted reproduction therapy. The study demonstrated that when acupuncture sessions were added 25-minutes before and 25-minutes after an InVitro Fertilization (IVF) embryo transfer the pregnancy rates almost doubled! The group of 80 patients who didn’t receive acupuncture had a pregnancy rate of 26.3%. The group of 80 patients who received acupuncture had a pregnancy rate of 42.5%. Because these results were so significant, this study has been duplicated over six times with similar results.
