Yes: Acupuncture can affect your body in positive and negative ways, just like any other medicine or treatment. It is not likely to affect your ovulation but it is possible.

Can accupuncture make you ovulate?

Depends: Women use acupuncture to manage stress. When stress levels are high, some women do not ovulate like they should do the stress. Thus, acupuncture indirectly helps reduce the physical effects of stress, thereby allowing women to ovulate normally. Do it regularly to see a result.
