Does PCOS acupuncture treatments help reduce the symptoms and increase the chance of getting pregnant?

herbs to increase fertility in men and womenAcupuncture is a alternative medicine technique used by the Chinese for over 3,000 years. It is used to treat an extensive collection of health problems.

This technique involves having a licenced practitiioner insert very fine needles in specific places on the body. It is believed that this will stimulate the energy flow called "Qi" needed to bring the body back into health.

One reason why people may not have tried acupuncture is the fear of needles. Unlike the "needles" you get when they need to draw blood from you veins, these needles are very fine.

Indeed, many people undergoing acupuncture only reports very minor sensation such as a very mild electrical tingle.

Does Acupuncture Work for PCOS?

Extensive scientific evidence shows that acupuncture can be effective in treating a variety of health conditions. It is believed that it can stimulate the body's natural production of hormones that can fight off the sensation of pain.

There are studies to show that acupunture can improve fertility in those women who do not suffer from PCOS.

What about PCOS acupuncture treatments?

There are studies done both in infertile females and animals (rats specifically) that acupuncture can reduce the symptoms of PCOS as well as increase fertility rate.

In the study done on rats, acupuncture stablized the female hormones to allow for normal ovulation to occur. This caused the enlarged ovaries to come down in size. Another study done in women showed improved blood flow to the ovaries.

In a study of 24 infertile women who did not have periods, 38% of them eventually were ovulating. This required up to 14 sets of treatment and it took at least 2 months for this to happen. This studied used acupuncture needles that were attached to an electrical current (electro-acupuncture).

However, acupuncture does not seem to work for severe cases of PCOS, only mild cases.

Keep in mind that there are also studies done that show that acupuncture did not do anything to improve fertility rate.

Acupuncture and IVF (In-vitro fertilization)

IVF is very expensive treatment option as many couples are aware. If you are plannin on using IVF to get pregnant, acupuncture can also boost the likelihood of getting pregnant.

Indeed, one study showed that combining acupuncture with conventional IVF treatment boost the fertility rate 50%.
