How early before your transfer did you start with the accupuncture?

I didn't do acupuncture with IUI but I did with Ivf. I had a failed fresh cycle, 2 frozen transfers both ending in mc (one at 12 weeks one at 6 weeks) I then started to see a psychologist (to clear my head) and an accupuncturist about 2 months before my transfer (another fet) and got another bfp that resulted in my precious little miracle (who turned 7 months yesterday). I believed it made all the difference (if anything it was so relaxing)

Sorry, I didn't see your response.  2 months before transfer also.  But you don't have to wait so long, you could start as soon as you start with an RE.  It's all good.

I am going to do a few rounds of acupuncture before my IVF and I will do some acupuncture on the transfer day too.. it can only help, not hurt.

I've been doing acupuncture for a month now and had an IUI last week. The acupuncturist did recommend I do it twice a week before the IUI and at least for two weeks before I started the Chlomid. The acupuncture works on so many levels- it helps blood flow to the mid section and also clears the channels in the body to be more open to receiving the benefits of any medication. I don't know if it worked this round but I suggest acupuncture to everyone. It does amazing things for the body! I also read about studies that were done and it has been noted that women who did acupuncture and ivf had an increased percentage of pregnancy. Good Luck!!
