A new study dated july 2008 has apparently proven that acupuncture does not boost IVF success rates. Is this true? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1033378/Acupuncture-does-boost-IVF-success-rate.htmlWednesday, September 3rd, 2008
I think the jury is out on this issue: Acupuncture is beneficial in IVF/ICSI cycles in so far as having the acupuncture on the day before and the day of and possibly the day after embryo transfer. For the rest of the time there are no studies to support that it is either beneficial or detrimental to the whole process of ART.
