Acupuncture thickens the uterine lining during IVF treatment

To evaluate the combined effects of acupuncture and Sildenafil on endometrial thickness during IVF.

Prospective self-controlled trial. Four infertility patients with prior IVF failures and an inability to achieve a uterine lining of R8 mm.

A series of five acupuncture treatments applied at specific intervals during an IVF cycle. All other parameters were kept consistent with the respective patient�s prior cycle.

All four subjects achieved endometrial lining thickness of >9mm following the administration of acupuncture, including one patient whose lining did not exceed 5 mm in a previous cycle.

We also noted that endometrial thickness of most patients continued to increase post-hCG administration.

>p>Our pilot study is consistent with previous reports that acupuncture improves uterine lining measurements over previous cycles.
