MAO Qun-hui;Akupunktur ved;




Objective To share 20 cases of women with diminished ovary reserve(DOR) and low Anti-Müllerian Hormone(AMH), who had unsuccessful in-vitro fertilization(IVF) trials and to whom the author has successfully treated. Methods Twenty women with DOR had gone through the failed IVF from 1 to 5 times. The acupuncture protocol consists of electroacupuncture, manual acupuncture, acupressure and sliding-cupping, which are the multiple interventions. The acupoints were used based on 5 phases of the menstrual cycle. The electroacupuncture was used twice a week in the follicle phase and the acupuncture without the electricity was used once a week in the luteal phase. Most of them had been treated for three menstrual cycles. Results All of 20 women got pregnant by IVF(17 casese) or naturally(3 cases). Conclusion Acupuncture might improve IVF outcomes for women with DOR by acupuncture treatment for three months or help them to receive naturally.
