Scientists say acupuncture could boost pregnancy success rates in both men and women.

They found it helps get the body primed and maximizes the potential effects of fertility treatments.

Two studies in the Journal of Endocrinology Investigation show it helps to manage stress and may help by improving blood flow to the ovaries and uterus.

They add, two areas that appear to be consistently helped are in vitro fertilization and women who are infertile due to polycystic ovary syndrome.
