Combining Laser Acupuncture (LLLT) For Fertility With Assisted Reproductive Technology

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%.
