research findings of acupuncture and IVF:

acupuncture increases live birth rate when integrated with IVF/IUI
Research has shown that acupuncture has the ability to regulate blood flow to the ovaries/uterus and lower cortisol (stress hormone) to improve fertility. There are several studies published that show how acupuncture treatments, can improve pregnancy rates by 12 – 50% compared to higher than those who did not receive acupuncture (during IVF/IUI.)
