How soon should I start?? Hubby & I are having our first meeting with an RE on the 26th & 27th..I am so nervous!! I am thinking our first shout at iui..if we can do IUI, will be in march..maybe, so when should I start?
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)
After 2 unsuccessful IVF my RE recommended me to do Acupuncture..It's been 2 months since I have started and believe me I feel the difference..I feel more energetic & relaxed..Hopefully I will start my 3rd IVF in Jan-Feb so, hoping it will work this time.. Good luck!!!
Thanks so much for all the great replies ladies, I really think I will look into it, I need all the help I can get..lol I hope my insurance will cover some of it. Good luck to all still hoping for a BFP, and congrats to those who got theirs!
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!!
