Women going through in vitro fertilization (IVF) commonly seek additional treatments like acupuncture to improve their chances of having a baby. A question I often hear in my office is, “how much acupuncture do I need in order to improve my chances of having a baby with IVF?” This is a great question. If you saw this research article, you might be wondering why. Recently, researchers concluded acupuncture on the day of embryo transfer does not improve IVF outcomes.

I’m excited to partner with the YinOva Center to discuss this recent research. The YinOva Center is a nationally recognized acupuncture clinic in New York City run by my lovely colleagues, Jill Blakeway, MS, LAc, and her husband, Noah Rubinstein, MS, LAc. To read my post, head on over on the YinOva Center blog to help answer the question, “How much acupuncture do you need to support your IVF?”

If you are visiting from the YinOva Blog, welcome! You can read more about how acupuncture improves fertility and subsequently improves IVF outcomes in my blog series.
