Scientific research has experimentally concluded that Chinese herbal medicine increases the likelihood of IVF success. In 2015, a research conducted by Karin Ried compared clinical pregnancy rates achieved with Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) versus Western medical (WM) treatment. Mean pregnancy rates in the CHM group were 60% compared with 33% in the WM group.

Coupling herbal medicine along with IVF treatment has clinically proven to help women achieve pregnancy. Herbal medicine enhances physiological processes that relate to reproduction and fertility. Herbs interact with the body to produce higher quality eggs, regulate menstrual cycles, increase blood flow to the uterus and increase the thickness of the uterine lining, protect DNA from damage, strengthen the immune system, and decrease the chance of miscarriage.
