Acupuncture Beats Fertility Medications

“WOULD-BE mums should consider acupuncture with a recent study finding the treatment is better at helping women fall pregnant than fertility drugs. The alternative treatment was compared to popular drugs used to boost ovulation with scientists finding acupuncture increased the chance of pregnancy to 43.3 per cent compared to 20 per cent through the medication.”

“Dr Zhiguang Hu, who led the research conducted at the Mawangdui Hospital of Hunan Province in China, said: ‘One important mechanism responsible for the fertility treatment success with acupuncture is hormonal regulation. And the study confirms that acupuncture normalises prolactin levels more rapidly than receiving fertility medications.'”
