Q: Can hypnosis really help me get pregnant?

A: In 2006, an Israeli study showed that women who were hypnotized during the implantation of embryos during IVF were twice as likely to get pregnant as those who weren't hypnotized. But the research is limited and it's hard to make an overall endorsement, say the experts. "Until we have the data on it, we can't say it's a treatment for infertility," says Alice Domar, Ph.D., executive director of the Domar Center for Mind/Body Health in Waltham, MA. "But if you think you might enjoy it and you want to try it, more power to you. Just don't be taken in by practitioners who promise they will get you pregnant--we don't have the data to support that."
