OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of luteal-phase acupuncture on the outcome of IVF/intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). [...] Key MethodDESIGN Randomized, prospective, controlled clinical study. SETTING University IVF center. PATIENT(S) Two hundred twenty-five infertile patients undergoing IVF/ICSI. INTERVENTION(S) In group I, 116 patients received luteal-phase acupuncture according to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine. In group II, 109 patients received placebo acupuncture. Expand

Adjuvant acupuncture reduces first trimester pregnancy loss after IVF
TLDR
Acupuncture reduces miscar-riage rates in patients undergoing IVF/ICSI possibly secondary to stress relief, and the number of first trimester miscarriages were significantly lower in the group receiving acupuncture. Expand
Effects of acupuncture on ovarian blood supply and pregnancy outcomes in patients receiving assisted reproduction

TLDR
Acupuncture treatment during the follicular phase can improve ovarian blood supply and pregnancy rate in those receiving IVF/ICSI-ET. Expand
The impact of acupuncture on in vitro fertilization outcome.
TLDR
The use of acupuncture in patients undergoing IVF was not associated with an increase in PRs but they were more relaxed and more optimistic, and reported feeling more optimistic about their cycle and enjoyed their sessions more than the control subjects. Expand
Effects of Acupuncture on the Outcome of in Vitro Fertilisation and Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection in Women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
TLDR
Acupuncture at an early stage of oocyte recruitment may have a beneficial effect on embryo quality, however, it seems to have no significant effect on other IVF/ICSI outcomes of women with PCOS. Expand
Acupuncture on the day of embryo transfer: a randomized controlled trial of 635 patients.
TLDR
It is suggested that acupuncture administered in relation to embryo transfer has no effect on the outcome of IVF and ICSI. Expand
Influence of Acupuncture on the Outcomes of in Vitro Fertilisation When Embryo Implantation Has Failed: A Prospective Randomised Controlled Clinical Trial
TLDR
In this study, acupuncture and moxibustion increased pregnancy rates when used as an adjuvant treatment in women undergoing IVF, when embryo implantation had failed. Expand
Effects of acupuncture on pregnancy rates in women undergoing in vitro fertilization: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Acupuncture improves CPR and LBR among women undergoing IVF based on the results of studies that do not include the Streitberger control, and more positive effects from using acupuncture in IVF can be expected if an appropriate control and more reasonable acupuncture programs are used. Expand
Therapeutic effect of acupuncture on the outcomes of in vitro fertilization: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Based on an analysis of the studies, acupuncture improves the CPR among women undergoing IVF, and Optimal positive effects could be expected using acupuncture in IVF during COH, especially in Asian area. Expand
Randomized controlled trial: effects of acupuncture on pregnancy rates in women undergoing in vitro fertilization.
TLDR
There was no statistically significant difference in the clinical or chemical PRs between both groups, suggesting that acupuncture is safe for women undergoing ET, and patients undergoing true acupuncture had differing sensory experiences compared with patients in the sham arm. Expand
Effect of acupuncture on in vitro fertilization
TLDR
The findings will summarize the current evidence of acupuncture on IVF outcomes and may provide guidance for clinicians and infertile women to select acupuncture for IVF. Expand

Influence of acupuncture on the pregnancy rate in patients who undergo assisted reproduction therapy.
TLDR
Acupuncture seems to be a useful tool for improving pregnancy rate after ART by comparing a group of patients receiving acupuncture treatment shortly before and after embryo transfer with a control group receiving no acupuncture. Expand
Role of acupuncture in the treatment of female infertility.
TLDR
Although the definitive role of acupuncture in the treatment of female infertility is yet to be established, its potential impact centrally on the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis and peripherally on the uterus needs to be systemically examined. Expand
A prospective randomized study of electro-acupuncture versus alfentanil as anaesthesia during oocyte aspiration in in-vitro fertilization.
TLDR
Electro-acupuncture has been shown to be as good an anaesthetic method as alfentanil during oocytes aspiration, and it is suggested that EA may be a good alternative to conventional anaesthesia during oocyte aspiration. Expand
Measurement of endometrial tissue blood flow: a novel way to assess uterine receptivity for implantation.
TLDR
Endometrial receptivity in terms of endometrial tissue blood flow (ETBF) measured hysterofiberscopically by laser blood-flowmetry and the technique's effectiveness in an in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection (IVF/ICSI) program was examined to conclude ETBF is superior to conventional parameters for determining endometrian receptivity for implantation.

Stress and marital satisfaction among women before and after their first cycle of in vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection.
TLDR
Differences in emotional status between pregnant and nonpregnant women were present before treatment and became more apparent after the first IVF and ICSI cycle. Expand
Assessment of uterine receptivity by the endometrial-subendometrial blood flow distribution pattern in women undergoing in vitro fertilization-embryo transfer.
TLDR
Endometrial-subendometrial blood flow distribution pattern assessed by transvaginal color Doppler before ET is correlated with the implantation and pregnancy rate of IVF treatment and is indicative of good endometrial receptivity, whereas the absence of both represents a poor uterine environment. Expand
Uterine contractions at the time of embryo transfer alter pregnancy rates after in-vitro fertilization.
TLDR
The results indicate that high frequency UC on the day of embryo transfer hinder IVF-embryo transfer outcome, possibly by expelling embryos out of the uterine cavity, and the negative correlation between UC frequency and progesterone concentrations supports the uterusine relaxing properties of progester one. Expand
Effect of Acupuncture Treatment on Uterine Motility and Cyclooxygenase-2 Expression in Pregnant Rats
TLDR
A significant reduction in uterus motility in pregnant rats supports the role of LI-4 acupuncture in inhibiting the expression of COX-2 enzyme that can be used to regulate complicated preterm labor. Expand
Comparison of changes in uterine contraction frequency after ovulation in the menstrual cycle and in in vitro fertilization cycles.
TLDR
High UC frequency in IVF at the time of ET results from delayed establishment of uteroquiescence after ovulation inIVF as compared with the menstrual cycle may contribute to the higher pregnancy rates observed with blastocyst transfers. Expand
