Auriculotherapy procedure for assisted reproduction therapy

Submitted By: bahauch

Hello,
 
In researching acupuncture treatment modalities that can be used to support patients with various infertility issues, I came across an article “Influence of acupuncture on the pregnancy rate in patients who undergo assisted reproduction therapy” (Fertility and Sterility. 2002;77:721-724).    
The article describes the use of the following auricular points: 55 (Shenmen), 58 (Zhigong), 22 (Neifenmi), and 34 (Naodian), but not the particular map/system of auriculotherapy to which they pertain.  Has anyone read this article who could possibly clarify this for me?
 
Many thanks!
