FET study concluded acupunture points increased embryo implantation, clinical pregnancy and live birth rates

A recent study concluded  higher embryo implantation, clinical pregnancy and live birth rates in women who received transcutaneous electrical acupuncture point stimulation  prior to their frozen embryo transfer (FET).  In this study women received treatment on their abdomen and lower inner leg over 3 cycles leading up to transfer. 

Decreased miscarriage rates simply by lengthening a short follicular phase.

In Chinese medicine, we emphasize having a regular menstrual cycle as a sign of balance and optimal fertile health. This includes, not only the quality of the menstruate, but also the full length of the cycle being 27-32 days and both the follicular phase (before ovulation) and the luteal phase (after ovulation) being around 14 days respectively.
