I am considering doing acupuncture with my IVF cycle to hopefully improve my chances... just wondering if anyone had any stories about doing IVf in conjunction with Acupuncture?

It can't hurt to do the accupunture. It helped me quit smoking before I did IVF. I would have done it if we had the $. I did do it w/ the IUI we did & it was very relaxing. Of course, my RE had an accupuncturist in his office so it was very convenient. I would make sure that they specialize in infertility so that they do the right course of treatment.

I thought it was a waste of money. I tried it before IVF b/c the lady told me she could get me pregnant in 3 months. Yeah, that didn’t happen! She specialized in infertility and I had to drive an hour to see her once a week. She would always ask me if I felt any different and I never did. I thought it wouldn’t hurt so I was going to try it when I decided to do IVF and when I called she didn't have time to squeeze me in before the egg retrieval So after I gave her all that $$$ she couldn't make 45 mins for me! I find them to be quacks. But that is my opinion. I had twins on the first round of IVF with no acupuncture. It’s a personal preference I think.
