FERTILITY Some couples have difficulty in conceiving and this can be a very stressful and isolating time for them. Often the medical profession cannot give an explanation as to why the couples have difficulty in becoming pregnant. It has been confirmed through research that acupuncture can increase the chances of a couple becoming pregnant through IVF and IUI treatment from 27% to 42% (Paulus W et al, Fertil Steril 2002 Vol 77, pg 721-724 Fertility and Sterility). Acupuncture can also be used to treat endometriosis, PCOS, pre- menstrual tension, painful periods and hormonal imbalances.
