What is IVF?

In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) is a process by which egg cells are fertilised by sperm outside the womb, in vitro. IVF is a major treatment in infertility when other methods of assisted reproductive technology have failed. The process involves hormonally controlling the ovulatory process, removing eggs from the woman’s ovaries and letting sperm fertilise them in a fluid medium. The fertilised egg (zygote) is then transferred to the patient’s uterus with the intent to establish a successful pregnancy.

The IVF process starts with certain blood tests to check the woman’s womb, ovaries and hormone level and an ultrasound scan to check the lining of uterus and ovaries. A detailed sperm count is also carried out. Certain fertility injections and drugs are used to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs. The eggs are then recovered, and placed together with sperm in a special nutrient rich tube to achieve fertilization.

After fertilization, one to three embryos are either transferred inside the woman’s uterus to begin pregnancy or kept frozen for future use. The whole process is monitored by the Doctor himself to check the development of follicles and lining of the uterus.  The IVF procedure gives approximately 30 – 35% pregnancy rate per cycle. Nearly 90% of the infertile couples can be successfully treated through IVF. This process is also made available in some hospitals so that it suits all pockets without compromising on quality and results.

Infertility is deeply stressful and often touches every aspect of life. It causes isolation in the life of married couples. Women can achieve fertilization, even after their reproductive age, through In Vitro Fertilization. The IVF treatment is offered at many hospitals as an alternate solution to infertility. IVF procedure aims to replace stress and pains with a hand of friendship and support.

Who is suitable for IVF?

Deciding to pursue IVF is not a step anyone takes lightly. It is a demanding process and often follows years of hope, frustration and grief. But there are things you can do to make the experience more pleasant and more likely to bring you the result you want, the birth of your baby.

Acupuncture can make a significant contribution not only to how you feel during your IVF cycle but also to your chances of success.

An increasing number of fertility specialists and centers recommend acupuncture as a part of their IVF protocol.  Supportive evidence from clinical trials and case series suggests that acupuncture may improve the success rate of IVF and the quality of life of patients undergoing IVF and that it is a safe adjunct therapy. A systematic review and meta-analysis published in the British Medical Journal found that complementing the embryo transfer process with acupuncture was associated with significant and clinically relevant improvements in clinical pregnancy.

Acupuncture and Moxa for IVF / IUI Procedure

Acupuncture and Moxibustion has been found to be a good alternative to conventional medical analgesia, it results in shorter hospitalization times and lower costs.

A large number of clinical trials have been conducted around the world, which show that acupuncture can increase IVF pregnancy rates. It has also been demonstrated that acupuncture reduces anxiety related to infertility and the IVF process.

Although men have a less active role to play during the IVF / IUI procedures, the sperm is every bit as important as the egg. While IVF, embryologists can give a lot of help to sperm that are not so good at fertilizing eggs by injecting them directly into the egg, they cannot improve the vitality of sperm. Clinical studies have shown that acupuncture and moxa can improve sperm quality, in particular morphology and motility.

Can Acupuncture Prick Help Women Get Pregnant?



Can an acupuncture prick help women get pregnant? The technique seems to have only limited success when used complementarily with in vitro fertilization (IVF), according to a new international study.

IVF procedures involve fertilizing a woman’s eggs with sperm in a laboratory, and then implanting a viable embryo in a woman’s uterus. Acupuncture is common complementary therapies for IVF, and are done with the aim of improving the chances of a successful pregnancy.

In a review of 16 independent studies involving more than 4,000 women, the researchers found that acupuncture had no benefit for patients who had visited IVF clinics with a history of higher-than-average pregnancy success rates. Acupuncture did increase the pregnancy rate, however, for patients at below-average IVF clinics.

“The lower the baseline pregnancy rate at the clinic, the more adjuvant acupuncture seemed to increase the pregnancy rate,” said Dr. Eric Manheimer, lead author and research associate at the University of Maryland Center for Integrative Medicine.

The study, published online June 27 in the journal Human Reproduction Update, adds more varied results for the use of acupuncture in conjunction with IVF, which has seen mostly mixed outcomes since it was first studied about two decades ago.

Surprisingly low odds

Although IVF has been available for more than 30 years, pregnancy success rates remain low — about 35 percent for U.S. women ages 35 to 40, and about 20 percent for those ages 40 and older, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The cost is typically more than $10,000 per attempt.

Many women have turned to acupuncture to increase their odds of getting pregnant via IVF. The therapy became more popular after it was featured on the television program “Sex and the City.”

However, there has been no significant evidence that acupuncture helps women get pregnant when used in conjunction with IVF, nor is there agreement among doctors about why it would work.

According to traditional Chinese medicine, the human body has a life force, or energy called chi, which travels through the body along meridians. In this tradition, acupuncture needles stimulate certain points below the skin to help unblock and regulate the flow of chi and, thus, aid in healing.

Chinese culture has used acupuncture for thousands of years to improve fertility. Acupuncture proponents claim the female body has various points related to fertility, mostly associated with the kidney, liver and heart.

Most Western doctors don’t subscribe to the notion of meridians and chi. Indeed, the medical literature is rife with letters to the editor calling the practice of acupuncture with IVF ridiculous and frivolous.

Some doctors, however, have hypothesized that acupuncture may reduce stress and increase blood flow to the uterus, which could, in turn, increase the chances of getting pregnant.


 What studies reveal

Studies on women undergoing IVF in Europe and North America remain inconclusive. A study published in 2002 by a German team led by Wolfgang Paulus at Christian-Lauritzen-Institut in Germany found that women who had acupuncture therapy along with their IVF were twice as likely to get pregnant compared with women who had only IVF. But the team’s follow-up study a year later comparing fake and real acupuncture yielded similar results, suggesting acupuncture’s role in pregnancy success could be attributed to the placebo effect.

In 2006, the journal Fertility and Sterility published a series of studies, some of which showed a positive effect from acupuncture and some of which showed no effect. In 2008, Manheimer published a study in the British Medical Journal revealing largely positive results in favor of using acupuncture with IVF.

But now, Manheimer’s follow-up study — which he wrote with co-authors in China, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands — has concluded that, on average, acupuncture offered no statistically significant benefit for IVF success rates in the 4,000 cases they analyzed.

While the scientific debate continues, it is perhaps useful to note that no study has revealed any negative side effects of acupuncture used with IVF, and the cost of acupuncture is negligible compared to the cost of IVF.
