There are as many theories as there are acupuncture points (hundreds). PFC Acupuncturists rely upon (and often participate in) the extensive research done in this field. The research which has been done is not perfect but some studies suggest that acupuncture improves ovulation rates, increases blood flow to the uterus (which improves chances of implantation) and results in overall better pregnancy outcomes. More research still needs to be done to verify if acupuncture truly does improve fertility, and if so, by how much? However, we do not believe that acupuncture is harmful for patients attempting to conceive.
