But that fertilization occurs outside of the uterus , then put in the womb, the failure rate is very high. However, studies in Germany indicate , by inserting acupuncture in IVF , the chances of pregnancy increases.

According to a study published in the Journal of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. As HealthScoutNews cited research by the Christian Lauritzen Institute in Ulm, Germany , involving 160 women aged about 32 years , which is fertilized outside the womb and had undergone two previous IVF cycles .

The 160 women were divided into two groups. A total of 80 women received acupuncture treatment , while the rest is a control group. In the first group received acupuncture treatment for 25 minutes before and after embryo partly transferred into the body of the meridian of the stomach, colon , and ear. According to investigators, at this point acupuncture can increase blood flow and energy of the uterus. In addition , acupuncture also has a calming and stabilizing the endocrine system .

The result , in the acupuncture group , 34 of 80 respondents ( 42.5 percent ) were able to get pregnant. As for the group that just fertilization outside of the uterus alone, the pregnancy rate only 21 of 80 respondents , representing approximately 26.3 per cent .

Can not be known exactly why acupuncture can promote pregnancy rates in women undergoing IVF program .
