Acupuncture may adjust FSH and LH and normalize oestrogen and progesterone levels, thus affecting ovulation

Acupuncture has been found to be effective in normalizing the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis and thus regulating ovulation. Studies show that acupuncture may adjust FSH and LH and normalize oestrogen and progesterone levels, thus affecting ovulation. Its efficacy to treat female infertility should be further investigated.
