Abstract

Objective: To obsere the curative effect of acupuncture plus medicine in treating ovulatory dysfunctional infertility. Method: All 36 cases with anovulatory infertility were randomly allocated into a control group (19 cases) and an observation group (17 cases). The cases in the control group were treated with 50 mg of oral administration Clomiphene once a day for 5 d, and 50 menstrual cycles were observed. The cases in the observation group were treated with combined acupuncture and the same medication as those in the control group and 45 menstrual cycles were observed. During the treatment sessions, the follicular development, ovulation, thickness of the endometrium, cervical mucus and pelvic fluid were observed and recorded. Results: The cases in the observation group showed significantly highter ovulation and pregnancy rates, along with thickening of the endometrium. In addition, no luteinized unruptured follicle syndrome (LUFS) occurred in the obsservation group. Conclusion: Acupuncture coupled with oral administration Clomiphene can obstain higher ovulation and conception rates than oral Clomiphene alone.
