Chinese medicine significantly improves the success of IUI (intrauterine insemination)

posted on 15th January 2012 by Gerard Frith

New research has again demonstrated that traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is highly effective in boosting fertility.

Women who only received intrauterine insemination (IUI), a form ofinfertility treatment, conceived in 39.4% of cases. But those receiving IUI together with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine conceived in 65.5% of cases. The research was conducted by Dr. Shahar Lev-Ari and Keren Sela of Tel Aviv’s Faculty of Medicine.

Not only did the women who received both IUI plus acupuncture and herbal medicine have a significantly higher conception rate – but they also had a higher birth rate of healthy babies. What makes this result even more significant was the age differences between the groups.

“The average age of the women in the study group (who received both IUI and Chinese medicine) was 39.4, while that of the control group was 37.1. Normally, the older the mother, the lower the pregnancy and delivery rates,” explain Dr. Lev-Ari and Sela in their report.

Treatment with Chinese medicine, such as acupuncture and herbal medicine, improves uterine blood flow, regulates menstrual cycles, reduces stress, and improves egg quality.
