Based in Boca Raton, Florida, the Palm Beach Fertility Center has recently announced that they are now offering a new form of treatment for couples that have been unable to conceive a child naturally. The experienced medical specialists within the facility have developed a treatment regimen that combines the benefits of acupuncture and IVF to increase the chances of a successful pregnancy.
This additional service is the result of a new study within the field that suggests that women who paired their IVF treatment with acupuncture had a 65% greater chance of becoming pregnant through the treatment. This study was released through the reputable and established British Medical Journal and included 114 women who had been approved for IVF treatment. It found that, of the women who received acupuncture, there were fewer miscarriages, more pregnancies and a 7% higher birth rate than those who did not receive the acupuncture treatment.
Can Acupuncture help with IVF Treatments?
This study was founded upon previous research by the same medical team in which they studied 147 women who had responded poorly to IVF treatment. This previous study found that the pregnancy rate was 40%, with 11% more babies born for those who received acupuncture during their scheduled IVF treatment.
Renowned worldwide fertility treatment experts such as Raymond Chang of New York’s Meridian Medical Group have been using acupuncture within their fertility treatments for the past decade and have experienced great success.
“Acupuncture provides better circulation and better blood flow to the womb. It will give a better chance for the eggs to be nourished and therefore carried.” – Dr. Raymond Chang, Director of New York’s Meridian Medical Group
Now, with this additional treatment offering through the Palm Beach Fertility Center, many women from across the South Florida area will have an increased opportunity to conceive a child of their own.
