|Fertility experts have championed acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicines, saying they can boost the success rate of IVF, according to a report in the Herald.
The advice from the experts, who were attending an event in Edinburgh for the 30th anniversary of IVF, goes against a recent study claiming that acupuncture does not improve the likelihood of getting pregnant.
But fertility awareness practitioner and event organiser Juliet le Page said in the Herald: "When you look at all the IVF clinics in the UK, NHS or private, there is only one I think which employs an alternative therapist who works in conjunction with the gynaecologists and their success rate certainly seems to be better than average."
