Abstract: Abstract of thesis entitled "A randomized double-blind comparison of acupuncture in patients undergoing in vitro fertilization treatment" Submitted by SO WING SZE for the degree of Master of Philosophy at The University of Hong Kong in August 2007 Although acupuncture is extensively being used in the management of female infertility, there is lack of solid evidence to support its potential value to expand its use into assisted reproduction. This is a prospective double-blind, randomized controlled trial with the use of non-invasive placebo acupuncture over the same acupoints to evaluate the effects of acupuncture on pregnancy outcomes, endometrial and subendometrial vascularity, stress and anxiety relief in patients undergoing IVF treatment. This study was carried out in Assisted Reproduction Unit of Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Queen Mary Hospital from August 2006 to June 2007. Three hundred IVF patients were randomly allocated to either real or non-invasive placebo acupuncture treatment according to a computer-generated randomization list in sealed envelopes. All of them received two sessions of real or placebo acupuncture immediately before and after embryo transfer. The primary outcome was pregnancy. Secondary outcomes were endometrial and subendometrial vascularity, cortisol concentration and anxiety level. There was no significant difference in the overall pregnancy rate when compared between groups. Reduction of endometrial and subendometrial vascularity, serum cortisol concentration and anxiety level was observed following placebo and real acupuncture, although there were no significant differences in the changes in all these indices when compared between the placebo and real acupuncture groups. No serious adverse effect was found. No significant difference was found in the patients' response of the treatment allocation. In conclusion, there is a surprising result on the efficacy of the non-invasive placebo acupuncture. As shown in the results, both placebo and real acupuncture were associated with reduction in endometrial and subendometrial 3D power flow indices, serum cortisol concentration and anxiety level following placebo and real acupuncture respectively. Placebo acupuncture may not be an inert control although the placebo needles do not penetrate through the skin. Acupuncture is a safe procedure. The efficacy of blinding of the placebo setting was valid. Further research is needed to evaluate the efficacy of acupuncture by developing a reliable and reproducible control, treatment scheme that is consistent with TCM principles and appropriate study design in order to demonstrate the mechanism of acupuncture more precisely. A greater understanding of the specialized clinical usage of acupuncture for specific infertility conditions will be provided by such rigorous study design.

The management of infertility using acupuncture is an expanding area of practice and one which is frequently rewarding for TCM acupuncture practitioners. Acupuncture for IVF and Assisted Reproduction has been specially prepared to meet the growing demand for information in this area and draws upon 20 years combined experience of the authors together with the latest evidence from both orthodox medicine and TCM. Richly illustrated and clearly written throughout, the book takes the reader through the anatomy and physiology of reproductive medicine (from both an orthodox and TCM perspective) and explains the underlying basis of orthodox medical fertility tests and investigations. The volume then explores the pathology and aetiology of TCM syndromes and shows how common fertility-related conditions, such as endometriosis and male factor infertility, affect Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) success rates. It explains in great detail how to take a reproductive medical history and successfully diagnose TCM syndromes. Acupuncture for IVF and Assisted Reproduction also provides guidelines on how to regulate the menstrual cycle in preparation for IVF treatment and shows how lifestyle can affect fertility and ART success rates. Placing a strong emphasis on the practical aspects of patient care, Acupuncture for IVF and Assisted Reproduction contains an abundance of case history templates, algorithmic acupuncture treatment pathways and patient fact sheets and will be ideal for all acupuncture practitioners working in this field.

Book Description :

Infertility affects more than 3 million married couples in the United States. This study explored the use of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for treating female infertility. Surveys queried allopathic practitioners and TCM practitioners regarding their perceived knowledge and use of TCM. The vast majority of allopathic practitioners referred patients to acupuncturists and believed that acupuncture helped patients. The majority of respondents identified a trend for treating female infertility with TCM and Western medical procedures. The majority of respondents supported the concurrent use of allopathic protocols and TCM but did not support the concurrent use of TCM and Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM). More than 62% of respondents expressed familiarity with clinical studies that used TCM for treating stress, depression, and irregular menstrual cycles. Positive results from evidence-based studies would likely encourage allopathic practitioners to use TCM and adopt a more holistic, collaborative approach for treating female infertility.

Book Description :

Now there is a hopeful, painless, and low-cost approach to infertility written by a hypnotherapist who has successfully helped women achieve pregnancy by removing blocks in their subconscious mind. There are many infertility-specific issues blocking the mind's subconscious that affect body functions and health. Women with a vague diagnosis of "unexplained infertility," and even those who have been diagnosed infertile due to minor physical issues, find that the mind can remove many physical and emotional barriers that aren't significant enough to cause permanent infertility. Hypnosis is simply gaining access to the subconscious mind—the place that holds all our psychological "blockages." Reprogramming the information going to our body's cells can be a complementary process to any fertility path a woman has chosen. This heartening guide can also benefit any woman undergoing assisted reproductive technologies, those looking for alternatives to these procedures, or for women who are just beginning to think about planning a family and want to prepare themselves for pregnancy.
