A ground-breaking new study, "The Impact of Acupuncture on IVF Success Rates," conducted at Homerton University Hospital, Homerton Fertility Centre, London, UK. The study, which uses a standardised protocol of acupuncture treatment agreed by 15 international acupuncturists, found that the ongoing pregnancy rate in a group of women who underwent the acupuncture protocol with IVF was significantly higher (53.1%) than the pregnancy rate of the non-acupuncture IVF group (27.5%). Science is showing that imbalances in hormones like insulin, thyroid and cortisol (a stress hormone) can interfere with a woman's ability to ripen or release an egg or with implantation or the ability to carry a baby to term. In addition to regulating stress hormones, acupuncture appears to improve blood flow to the ovaries and the uterine lining, create a supportive ovarian environment for the maturing follicles, and improve the receptivity of the uterine lining
