Hydrosalpinx and other fallopian tube obstructions which cause infertility can be effectively treated with acupuncture and herbs.
Clinical results have proven that a combination of acupuncture and herbal medicine has a 90% success rate of clearing blockages and therefore boosting fertility, compared to a success rate of only 53% when receiving a treatment of pharmaceutical medicine alone.
Recent research conducted at the Maternal and Child Health Care Hospital of Puyang City shows that a minimum of a 3 month course of treatment was needed to gain these results.
