She then gave me two types of chinese herbal tablets, one for worry and anxiety and the other for fertility which is supposed to 'warm' the utereus. However she told me to take 8 of each 3 times a day!! that is 48 tablets ontop of vitamin b6, vitex and pregnacare preconceive capsules that I am already taking!! This seems like alot, not sure if it could be good to put so much into ur system at once!Also the whole thing cost me 56 and she told me I need to go once a week! That is alot of ! Not sure where to go from here, any advice or help would be greatly appreciated!x

Good luck ladies with the acupuncture! I had a consultation to start acupuncture (had been trying for 14 cycles) and he had never had a woman go beyond 3 months of treatment without getting pregnant. I'd say a 100% success rate makes it worth it! Fortunately, though, I was just a teensy bit pregnant when I went in for the consultation and didn't have to do it after all

Hi all, Moorebetter, so strange your circumstances look so similar to mine, but I'm 18 months in. Let's hope this is our time :-)
Kittie, in a book by Zita West the fertility expert she talks at great length about warmth around the belly, and eating warm foods and the power of TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) so seems like your practitioner was working to the same lines. The zita west book is great, she has a website too, would reccomended it for a look -good luck! X
