It was in acupuncture literature suggested that some acupuncture points have risks for pregnancy. Acupuncture has been widely used in many obstetric complaints such as nausea and vomiting, insomnia and low backpain etc. Also acupuncture was suggested to be beneficial for threatened miscarriage. Are there scientific bases for the suggestion of forbidden points? Recently some articles argue that these points do not exist. Cummings in Royal London Hospital, London, UK did research and examined the proposed risks. He did not find any possible physiological mechanism for supporting the exist of forbidden points. Da Silva AV et al did a research on these and they found that current available some publications though limited do not support that the forbidden points exist. Guerreiro da Silva AV et al did an animal research to investigate 4 acupuncture points LI4, SP6, BL27 and BL28 to see if these points cause harm for pregnancy. They found that these points did not cause embryonic loss after implantation or fetal death or abortion or resorption. They concluded that these acupuncture points has no harm to pregnancy.
