I'm about to start my second round of IVF in August. My first round last May was cancelled because the BC and Lupron I was taking over-suppressed me (I only had one follicle in each ovary). In June, I started participating in acupuncture to increase my chances at IVF success. Have any of you tried acupuncture to better your chances at a successful IVF cycle? Did it work out for you?
i did acupuncture and herbs with my first IVF cycle and am almost 18 weeks pregnant :)
who knows what part it played, but if nothing else it was very relaxing to do acupuncture before and after the transfer.
I did acupuncture on my first round of IVF and am 9 w4d. Like happynifer said, who knows if that's what did it, but I do think it helped. I had treatment 30 minutes before transfer and immediately after, which is what my RE recommended. Good luck to you!
I'm so haapy for all of you! Congratulations! I hope a month from now I can tell you I got a BFP :)
Did you take a break from the acupuncture during stims? My acupuncturist said I won't get any treatment while I'm stimming. Just wondered if this was common practice. How about the herbs? Did you take the herbs while you were stimming?
