Acupuncture, like most other alternative therapies, is particular popular for indications that are:
2. associated with a high burden of suffering,
3. not easily treatable with conventional therapies,
4. are frequently resolved without any intervention.
Infertility or subfertility tick most of these boxes. It is therefore not surprising that acupuncturists the world over claim that acupuncture can cure infertility. But is this claim based on evidence or on wishful thinking?
