I did acupuncture with my ivf cycle ! Unfortunetly it didn't work but the nurse that did it told me it gives you up to a 45% increase in getting preggers ! When i have my 2nd ivf cycle i am goin to get it done again ! It isn't going to hurt and if it doesn't work your not gonna wanna look back and think if you would have got it the results might have been different I recommend it to everyone even though it didn't work with me ! p.s it was only $350 more
silapooh: hi i tried acupuncture with my 2nd ivf,i did on the day of transfer too & i got my BFP & iam still doing acupuncture twice a week iam 8weeks&4days pregnent rightnow.so goodluck.acupuncture does help in fertility.
Hi, i'm not undergoing IVF at the moment but I have recently started seeing an acupuncturist in the hopes of increasing my fertility. We've been trying for quite some time no so I figured "why not give it a try".
I cannot believe the difference that it has made. Usually i have very little bleeding with my AF (insufficient lining for implantation), this past month I had tons - much like the periods I had back when I was around 20 or so. (I'm 36 now) Before acupuncture I had little or no CM. My CM this past month has been plentiful.
So although I'm not having acupuncture in conjunction with IVF - I certainly can vouch for the fact that it has the ability to change things in a woman's body. As long as your RE knows that you will be undergoing the acupuncture along with the IVF and is ok with it - then I say GO FOR IT!!!!
I can hardly wait to hear about your BFP very soon!
