Combining Laser Acupuncture (LLLT) for Fertility with Assisted Reproductive Technology

allison's picture

If you know our clinic you’ve probably heard about our Laser Baby Program and how we have been geeking out combining low level laser therapy (LLLT) with acupuncture for fertility. Many women have already enrolled in the Laser Baby Program and have observed early benefits and hopeful results managing hormone balance, egg quality, PMS, ovulation, and menstrual regularity. However many women who chose not to join the program but instead simply included laser therapy to their regular acupuncture treatments also reaped the benefits of low level laser therapy. Some were even able to conceive naturally after being told it was nearly impossible.

At Acubalance we are big proponents of preconception care. The most important time to optimize your fertility is the 100 days before conception occurs. Whether you’re trying to conceive naturally or have plans for in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intrauterine insemination (IUI), cultivating a healthy mind and body the three months before planned conception can greatly increase your chances of a healthy baby.  Acubalance’s signature acupuncture and laser fertility treatments can be a powerful tool in improving positive outcomes when utilizing assisted reproductive technology (ART) such as IVF and IUI.

A 2012 Japanese study of 701 women showed that combining low level laser therapy with assisted reproductive technology can significantly increase successful pregnancies and births. Women between the ages of 30-34 generally have a 42% chance of pregnancy using assisted reproductive technology. When using low level laser therapy (LLLT) protocol in addition to ART, the chances nearly doubled to 80%. The study also showed that women between the ages of 35-39 had a 35.4% chance of  pregnancy using ART, but a 50% of pregnancy when combining LLLT with their IVF or IUI procedures. Women in the study who were 40 and older had an 11.1% of conceiving with ART alone, but when combined with LLLT tripled to 36.4%.
