According to new research from Thames Valley University

A,15% of practitioners supporting fertility issues said this constituted a large proportion of their case load.

B,Eighty percent of practitioners reported most fertility work was related to assisted conception.

C,More than 60% had specialist training.

D,Practitioners' perceived benefits included stress reduction, relaxation, regulation of menstrual cycle, and emotional support.

E,Point-specific acupuncture protocols were common (70%).

F,Thirteen percent reported problems working with physicians.

G,Use of acupuncture for male fertility issues was uncommon.

Their conclusion is A minority of acupuncturists have become specialists in supporting fertility issues. The use of an acupuncture protocol is common but does not conform to traditional acupuncture as it is taught and practiced for other conditions.
