Abstract
A woman with the problem of infertility receiving osteopathic treatment has an increased chance of becoming pregnant.

Objectives: Since the end of the century the number of childless marriages in industrial countries are continuously climbing. Nearly every 7th couple stays unintentionally childless.
Through the variety of treatment possibilities the question for the efficiency of the treatment is becoming more important.
The purpose of this study is to prove that these women, who receive osteopathic treatment have a higher chance of becoming pregnant either during or after a course of treatment and that osteopathic intervention is an important support mechanism for them during that time.

Design: A “within subject design“ was decided to use as special form of “repeated measure design”.

Methods: Treatment of 10 women between the age of 25 - 40 years who have failed to conceive after a minimum of 16 months. These women, who are expected to demonstrate special conditions, got osteopathic treatment for six months. There was no treatment, either osteopathic or otherwise, for the next three months.

Results: 70 % of the women became pregnant within a period of nine months after the beginning treatment.

Conclusion: Even it is a small study of 10 women, the efficiency of the treatment is clearly recognizable. 70 % of the treated women became pregnant. Further all of the women allege that the osteopathic treatment was very comfortable and would recommend this kind of therapy to other people who also have the problem of an unfulfilled wish for a child.
This leads me to the confirmation of my thesis, that a woman receiving osteopathic treatment has through this kind of therapy an increased chance of becoming pregnant.

Key words: osteopathic treatment, infertility, pregnancy
