San Diego, CA, June 26, 2006 – In a report that can be found in the “Fertility and Sterility” journal (Spring, 2002) published by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, it was published that the use of acupuncture to assist successful IVF conception increases the chances of successful implantation. “What Traditional Chinese Medicine has known for thousands of years is now being revealed via research and published study”, says Laurie Morse, a Licensed Acupuncturist. Another study performed by Cornell University (December, 2002) that can be found in “Fertility and Sterility” stated, “Acupuncture provides encouraging data regarding its potential positive effect on implantation.”

This is good news for the increasing numbers of couples trying to conceive. According to The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, it is estimated that currently, more than 1 in 6 couples are unable to conceive without some form of medical intervention. Acupuncture is non-toxic and relatively affordable, thus deserves serious consideration when trying to get pregnant.

In addition to acupuncture, there are a few other important considerations for conception. Your daily diet and mindset also have an important impact on successful conception so be sure to eat healthy. According to Ms. Morse, there are several things a woman who is trying to conceive has direct control over via her daily decisions. These choices can potentially save her money in the long run, whether utilizing Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) or going about conception naturally. “It’s vital to take seriously those aspects of your health you have control over in order to optimize fertility,” says Morse.

The good news is that for women who are unsure about which choices support optimal fertility, there is a self-guided program called My Fertility Success. This program provides those seeking to get pregnant with a step-by-step process for turning their infertility switch off and their fertility switch on.
