The Centre for Complementary Medicine Research at the University of Western Sydney, in conjunction with IVF Australia, Fertility Plus, Assisted Conception Australia, Fertility SA and Flinders University, are conducting a new study to examine how acupuncture may increase live birth rates for women undergoing IVF treatments.
To be able to join the study women need to be less than 43 years, undergoing a fresh IVF or ICSI cycle, and who have two or more previous unsuccessful embryo transfers (ET) (fresh or frozen) and unsuccessful clinical pregnancies of quality embryos. You will also need to confirm you are able to attend a treatment session during the time you are administering stimulating medication before egg retrieval and also for two appointments on the day of embryo transfer (one before and one after). You will be allocated randomly to either acupuncture or placebo acupuncture. All acupuncture treatment sessions are free.
If you don't wish to receive acupuncture then we would be grateful if you could provide information of your IVF experience.
If you would like to be part of this research study please contact researchers for more information, check out our facebook page ‘Acupuncture to Improve Live Births for Women Undergoing IVF’ or follow us on Twitter ‘ACU-ART@UWSCompleMed’. Researchers can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 02 4620 3290.
