I just talked to the accupuncturist...she is AMAZING!!!! She spent so much time on the phone with me, was very empathetic. Totally knows her stuff when it comes to infertility, knew what all my levels meant, asked specific questions on whether or not certain things have been looked at (progesterone, FSH, etc). I told her how depressed and stressed I've been and she said she believes this plays a large part in infertility, that the adrinal glands pump out hormones and stress inhibits a lot of that. After hearing everything about me, she said "We ARE going to get you pregnant norina"...I had to choke back tears. Her rates are so much lower then I was anticipating...still a bit of $$ but worth it. plus she asked if I have any pain management problems...I told her my lower back hurts me quite often and so she said if my insurance will cover it she will bill them under "pain management"...AWESOME! She said she knows how much infertility tests and procedures cost and so she'd feels fine with billing and treating my back pain in conjunction with the infertility stuff! My first appt w/her is Monday the 26th!

So I'll let you all know how it goes. I have a good feeling about her

That is great news Norina!

I am looking to find a fertility accupuncturist for when we start our IVF cycle.
I have heard such great things about complementry medicine alongside conventinal
that i think it is well worth a try!

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Waiting for god to bless me with my 1st child when the time is right.

Norina ~ I'm so happy to hear that you are already comfortable w/ your acupuncturist. Good relationships are hard to come by. I think she has made some excellent points about the stress hindering pgcy. Hopefully all this will get settled sooner than later & you will be pg!
