BENEFITS OF ACUPUNCTURE & IUI
If you have started an IUI cycle or if you are considering IUI, acupuncture may be able to increase the chances of conception. A particular study shows that women who were being treated with acupuncture and Chinese herbs, had a 50% higher pregnancy rate than those who weren’t undergoing treatments.(1) Although more research is needed to evaluate the benefits of acupuncture for female fertility. TCM seems to be a beneficial complementary treatment in IUI procedures.
