What you'll learn

A growing number of fertility patients undergo acupuncture to increase their odds of conceiving. In this course we cover the basics of acupuncture, its "mechanism of action" on fertility, and the hard data about whether using acupuncture improves live birth rates. As with any treatment, acupuncture requires a financial and temporal cost. We'll cover both of those, along with the implications of using herbs and how to determine which acupuncturist to use.
