Acupuncture is a very popular approach for those looking to conceive. See our blog on the research that has been done into the use of acupuncture for fertility reasons
The British Acupuncture Council has produced an evidence based factsheet about Female Fertility, as well as one on Male Fertility and acupuncture approaches, including specific research, trials and mechanisms of action for acupuncture for this.
A systematic review and meta-analysis of studies found acupuncture to have a positive effect on the birth rate of sub fertile women having IVF/ICSI treatment (BAcC briefing paper).
