A widely published German study found that using acupuncture with IVF achieved a 42% clinical pregnancy rate compared to only 26% in the control group that did not receive acupuncture. When acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are used in conjunction with IVF, clinical experience suggests the pregnancy rate can be raised to at least 60%.
For couples going through Assisted Reproductive Technology, Traditional Chinese Medicine can help improve the function of the ovaries to produce better quality eggs, regulate the hormones to produce a larger number of follicles, increase the blood flow to the uterus and increase the thickness of the uterine lining, relax the patient and decrease stress, prevent uterine contraction, lessen the side effects of Western drugs used in IVF, strengthen your immune system, improve male semen to create better quality and quantity of embryos, and decrease the chance of miscarriage.

It's powerful and amazing. Yoga is a union, not only of body and mind but teacher and community.
