Electroacupuncture Reduces Uterine Artery Blood Flow Impedance in Infertile Women

A recent study of blood flow to the uterus examined the effect of electroacupuncture during the drug stimulation phase of an IVF cycle. The blood flow in the uterine artery was increased in the group of women who had acupuncture but not in the control group. More women in the acupuncture group responded to the IVF drugs than in the control group; however the pregnancy rates were not significantly different between the two groups.
