Transcutaneous Electircal Acupoint Stimulation

TEAS (Transcutaneous Electircal Acupoint Stimulation)

There have been several reports in English published using TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine in Acupunct Med 2012:30:12-16), and TEAS (Transcutaneous Electircal Acupoint Stimulation in Fertility and Sterility 2011) to increase pregnancy rates in infertile couples. Based upon this data I have begun to offer TEAS to my gender selection patients both in the Gsmart method, and Gsmart combined with the IVF/PGD method.

Although the number of cases is small, it appears that using TEAS increases the pregnancy rate.
