Abstract

Objective

To observe the clinical effect of electroacupuncture for ovulatory dysfunctional infertility by ovulation stimulation.

Methods

Results

After six months (2 sessions) of treatment, the cure rate in the treatment group was 76.3%, versus 48.1% in the control group, showing a significant difference between the two groups (P<0.05).

Conclusion

Electroacupuncture can obtain better cure rate than oral Clomifene Citrate Tablets for infertility via ovulation stimulation.
