Has anyone ever given any thought to or tried alternative medicine for infertility issues? I've been doing some research but I'd be really interested if someone has any first hand knowledge. Things like organ massage and acupuncture? Do these tactics really work on women who are having somewhat advanced fertility issues? I found a local Center for Wellness that has a "Fertility Assistance Program" consisting of acupuncture and organ massage that states that it can be used with other fertility methods such as Clomid or IVF. I'm heavily considering it - because it couldn't hurt, right? Any thoughts?

I did acupunture but it didn't really help me ONLY because I didn't really have any issues....but if you have irregular cycles, spotting, etc. I have heard acupuncture helps.

I do use alternative medicine (essential oils, homeopathic meds, H2O2) for sicknesses and it works fairly well.

Addie (yarngirl) used acupuncture during her IVF cycle, and Celry got pregnant with twins usling only acupuncture (after trying Clomid unsuccessfully). These are the only 2 success stories I can think of off of the top of my head, but I'm sure others will jump in!

I haven't attempted any natural stuff as of yet. Thought about trying acupuncture while we are on our MA break to see if it will help me O on my own.

Let us know if you find something that works for you. I'm always looking for another success story!

I know several ladies on another board I am a member of who credit their BFPs to Maca Root... I can give you their names if you would like!

to the Maca Root. There is actually a sticky up top that was started back when a lot of ladies were raving about it. Worth the read!

I did some reflexology and i could definately feel things moving and working around in my uterus area. I always felt cramping when I was there. Not sure it did anything significant, but I enjoyed it.
