I had acupuncture for anxiety and also to help balance out hormones. I don't know if it helped hormones but it helps anxiety. I have heard many say it helped their fertility

It generally is really good. I found my GP was amazing, the private acupuncturist was good but my doctor seemed to help my anxiety more. She probably used different points. It doesn't hurt, with the exception of some points like your toes, but you can ask them to avoid any points which are painful if you don't want them done. There's always another point they can use. It's normal to feel something, but once the needles are in and have been in a few seconds you don't feel a thing. Try to avoid moving, especially if you have them in your face anywhere, don't frown or anything as that can hurt lol

I was actually booked in to have fertility acupuncture before I got pregnant with my lg. I never had an an appointment though because I got my bfp, very unexpectedly. I had read wonderful things about it though, and I hope it works well for you.

Thank you, SadakoS, and congratulations on your pregnancy! Worked so well for you you were pregnant before the appointment!

Happy cupcake, I have had acupuncture before, but just ďnormalĒ acupuncture, so just wondering about the specialist fertility.

I guess I can come back and share next week!

Oh so you know what to expect then many don't and it's hard to explain how it feels. It's incredibly relaxing though whatever you're having it for afterwards, I always just wanted to curl up and go to sleep after
