(Australia Broadcasting Co) – Women having acupuncture to increase their chances of having a baby through IVF might be wasting their time, new research has found. A landmark Australian study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), found no difference in birth rates in women who had regular acupuncture, compared to those who did not. The study’s lead author, Professor Caroline Smith of Western Sydney University, said acupuncture might help to improve relaxation and reduce stress for women undergoing IVF treatment.
