Unexplained Infertility
The state of hypnosis makes positive visualisation much easier and more effective too.  If you are about to start an assisted fertility cycle, hypnotherapy can help you to feel mentally, emotionally and physically prepared.  Hypnotherapy is a very powerful way to overcome any fears or phobias you may have which may be impacting on your treatment.  E.g. fear of it not working, fear of injections, fear of childbirth.  Relaxation techniques and visualisation for IVF help to increase the effectiveness of the treatment, and studies have shown that when hypnosis is used during embryo transfer it doubles the successfull outcome of the treatment.  This would also apply when using hypnosis for home insemination.

Hypnosis Doubles IVF rate

According to an Israeli study presented to the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology conference in Berlin in July of 2004, hypnosis can effectively double the success of IVF treatments.  The study was conducted by Professor Eliahu Levitas and his team at Soroka Hospital in Beersheva to determine if hypnosis could improve the success of the embryo transfers stage of IVF.

The study of 185 woman found that 28% of the women who were hypnotized for the IVF treatment became pregnant, compared to 14% of the women in the control group.  Professor Levitas studied the effects of hypnosis for the IVF treatment and embryo transfer only, because prior studies that demonstrated the stress of the procedure created small contractions of the uterus that prevented the successful implantation of the fertilized egg.  The professor indicated that tranquilizers had been used in prior studies, but nothing worked as well as hypnosis. 

"Performing embryo transfer under hypnosis may significantly contribute to an increased clinical pregnancy rate," Professor Levitas told the conference in Berlin. He also hopes that this study will spark continued investigation into the use of hypnosis as an adjunct to fertility treatments. 

Hypnosis and the Stress of Infertility 

Two studies conducted by Alice Domar, PhD, showed the efficacy of mind/body techniques in removing unresolved issues about having a baby. In the first study, published in 1999 in the Journal of the American Medical Women’s Association, 42% of 132 infertile women participating in a mind/body program conceived within six months of completing it. 

In the second study, published in 2000 in the journal Fertility & Sterility, 55% of the previously infertile women who met regularly in a mind/body program conceived, compared with 20% of the control group who used no mind/body techniques
