Cure is a strong word, but acupuncture might help increase your odds of getting pregnant, and the evidence it works is more than just word of mouth.
Several studies have found that women who get acupuncture treatments — whether to treat conditions that can interfere with getting pregnant (such as polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS) or to increase the chances of a successful IVF — have a higher rate of pregnancy and births. Some fertility doctors recommend acupuncture for their patients to help lower overall stress levels, because stress hormones can lower fertility hormones like progesterone.

Dr Zhen Liu has tremendous compassion and concern for all his patients and has significantly impacted many of their component of “chi deficiency”, “chi blood deficiency”, or “yang deficiency” depending on their specific symptoms.
Acupuncture can begin at any time during the fertility treatment – before you start taking any oral or injectable drugs to help “prep” your body; during drug treatment to help deal with side effects (nausea, moodiness, fatigue); or during IVF cycles.
Dr Liu charges between $150 and $300 for an initial visit and $75 to $150 for follow-ups. This does include the cost of the herb formula. Fertility acupuncture is a specialty different than regular acupuncture treatments. It requires 5-6 sessions per month to be successful.
Before you investigate acupuncture, however, make sure you receive a medical evaluation by a physician. “There are certain conditions that can’t be helped by acupuncture, such as blocked fallopian tubes, so you need to know what is going on with your body medically.
