In recent years there has been increasing discussion in the use of acupuncture in the field of fertility. Dr Curtin has a particular interest in the use of acupuncture alongside IVF. Some studies have shown that the addition of acupuncture to a programme of assisted fertility can improve the outcomes, other studies have failed to show this effect. There is also some evidence that acupuncture can improve the symptoms of anxiety in women undergoing IVF.
For more information regarding acupuncture and fertility, please don’t hesitate to get in touch or book an initial consultation with Dr Michael Curtin in one of his clinics in London, Bedford, St Albans or Hitchin.
