My mom was telling me about a friend who had 2 IVFs with no luck, and then tried acupuncture 1 time and got pg! I'm really thinking of doing since I have done 3 cycles of Clomid with not success. I'm just not sure where you get it done. I live in a town with a population of 5,000ish in Iowa, so not sure where to go. I think there is a chiropractor in town who does it, but I'm not sure if he really knows what he's doing! How did all of you go about finding your acupuncturist?
of course ill update ya'll im excited, but im not going to get my hopes up, im going to be relaxed, thats why im going tomorrow to another seesion!! ive also been taking a warm water bottle and placing it over my ovaries and lifting my legs up aganist the wall laying down for 20 mins. im sure I look like a total fool hahahah
lbortell whoa that is awesome!!!! I tried googling for you, and you must live in a very small town. When you do go, ask where they got certified. The more schooling the better, try and find a acupunturist- meaning they went to a school for many years, some chiro's just go to a few classes and say they are qualified. gl!!! please let us know if you end up going
Hi, I'm in Oxford, UK. Quite lucky, acupuncture is quite popular here so ican choose from about 8 good practitioners in my small town. Good plan with the hot water bottle, so much emphasis on warmth in so many TTC theories. All the luck in the world for tomorrow xxx
Well so far no luck finding someone in this area that does TCM or acupuncture. But my friend who is into the holistic lifestyle (she even makes her own deodorant!) gave me a buisness card from a girl she works with. Her sister is an herbal consultant specializing in fertility, pregnancy, hormonal balance, and babies/children. So I am going to give her a call and see if she knows of anyone who can do it or maybe even what she can offer.
Hope everyone enjoys their first appoitments! Has anyone found if their insurance doesn't cover the fertility treatments you are on, do they cover the acupuncture?
I was happy to find this thread as I've recently started sessions with a Dr of TCM. She uses a combo of acupuncture, herbs, laser therapy and massage. Just completed my 5th session and due to O today or tomorrow! Interested to see how this month goes. I think if nothing else it helps me to relax which can't hurt right? Good luck all
