A 40 year old female patient, who had never been pregnant, came in seeking acupuncture fertility treatment supporting her second IVF procedure. Since she already start the hormonal treatments, we decided to use acupuncture every other day until ovulation, plus moxibustion. After transfer phase, only acupuncture once a week for two weeks. Our treatment approach uses acupuncture and localized heat application on carefully selected points targeted to enhance uterine blood flow, enhance the parasympathetic system, correct imbalance in the autonomic nervous system, and recover quickly from the stress in order to avoid the harmful consequences of prolonged stress. She had much better result on each phase and no stress at all. She became pregnant during the second IVF cycle.
