Domar Questions Own Study Showing Acupuncture Doesn't Boost IVF Success

NEW YORK (Reuters Health),  April 16, 2009

A new study suggests that acupuncture does not help women undergoing in-vitro fertilization (IVF) get pregnant.

But the lead researcher says acupuncture may not have worked in her study because, unlike past research, her investigation wasn't limited to women who had good quality embryos available for transfer. "I'm wondering if my sample was just not a good sample, in that most of the patients in my study were probably not the best-prognosis patients," Dr. Alice D. Domar of Boston IVF, Inc., in Waltham, Massachusetts, told Reuters Health.
