Low Reactive Level Laser Therapy for Severe Female Infertility

 

Severe female infertility is almost always related to the malfunction of the ovaries. The use of assisted treatment of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART is important for overcoming infertility. Low reactive Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)has been shown to improve the blood circulation. A total of 337 females (mean age: 38.4) with severe infertility were treated with LLLT assisted for ART. Diode Laser and Long Pulsed Nd:YAG Laser was used on LLLT. The irradiation areas were near the stellate ganglion and the femoral artery and LLLT was performed more than once a week. Of these, 110 cases became pregnant and the fertility rate was 32.6% and the best term was between 2 and 11 weeks for patients receiving ART and LLLT. Compared with the conventional assisted treatment for ART, such as
Chinese herbal medicine or melatonin, LLLT had almost the same treatment outcome. In the future, LLLT with the conventional assisted treatments may lead to an increased fertility rate for ART.
