Acupuncture Has Better Success Than Clomid For Pregnancy

Garden Acupuncture shares a new study showing that acupuncture is more effective than clomid for pregnancy. A new study finds acupuncture more effective than comifene for the the treatment of infertility. Clomifene trademarked as Clomid and Omifin, is the most widely prescribed fertility drug on the market. It is an estrogen receptor, which induces ovulation.

In this new study, 65 women with infertility due to dysfunction of ovulation were divided into two randomly chosen groups. Group 1 received electroacupuncture and group 2 received 50mg of clomifene tablets. After 6 months of treatment, the acupuncture group had a success rate of 76.3% and the clomifene group had a 48.1% success rate.
