Just wondering if any of you have tried acupuncture? My RE has a very holistic approach to fertility and strongly encouraged me to try it. He said it also helps to thicken the lining due to increased blood flow. So, I gave it a shot (haha, no pun intended) tonight...don't know if it did a bit of good-but it was very relaxing.

So...what do you guys think of acupuncture? Have you tried it? Do you believe in eastern medicines to help with things such as fertility?

I started going to accupuncture prior to my IVF in October....Obviously, I didn't conceive, but I do feel that it will help with the process, if nothing else, I am incredibly relaxed afterwards, so that's always a plus. When I see my RE on Monday, I'm going to ask him about my accupuncturist coming the day of my transfer and working with me RIGHT BEFORE and RIGHT AFTER my FET

I'm fully convinced acupuncture helped lead to my BFP. I'd stopped all western fertility meds a few months before. I was waiting to start them again at the beginning of the year. I was doing acupuncture and herbs. My cycles were starting to regulate and I had a great temp shift when I Od, which rarely happened before. I searched for a really long time to find an acupuncturist who was specifically trained in and focused on fertility. A lot of acupuncturists say they treat fertility, but that doesn't mean they have been specifically trained for it.

Actually, one of my best friends is my accupuncturist! LOL! (and she's on her way over here right now! LOL!) Anywhoo.....I started going to her last summer as a way to get thru the painful periods without the dumb narcotics. She is AMAZING! We hit is off instantly and 2 months later she was going on our Aug. 08 cruise with us! She is working with me on the fertility stuff.....even goes to my Dr.'s appts with me. I could go on for HOURS about how I feel about accupuncture/eastern medicine......and what we are planning to do/why she's coming over here now.... But I won't bore everyone to tears with my babble. PM if you wanna chat about it!
Thank you so much AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!!

I am a strong believer in accupuncture, I did it both times prior and during the treatments and it helped us get pg both times. I never hurts to try, I absolutely loved the session I had so much energy and felt sooo relaxed.

I used accupuncture in the first two IUI cycles with clomid... obviously no BFP. I deffinatly don't think it hurt any.... I even went like 3 times each cycle, once at the begining of my cycle, once just before ovulation, and once during 2ww for 2 cycles...
I WAS very relaxing though.
