I'm going for my first accupuncture today. Im kinda nervous and my hubby thinks im crazy! LOL! we've been trying to conceive for about 10 months, period is due this weekend so if i don't get a BFP then we're trying clomid. I really hope that the accupuncture helps even if it just helps to relax me!

Thanks! So apparently i misread it, it was acupressure that i went to today! LOL i really need to read things better! But it was still interesting. She focused on my reproductive organs, she said that she feels like i can expect to feel a change in the next 3-4 days. She asked if im due soon for my period and i said that im due either tomorrow or sunday so she said it could be thats what shes picking up on. I do feel very relaxed not sure if its from that or just from laying on a comfy table for an hour! Overall it was very interesting, we'll see what change comes my way in the next few days! I do still want to find a local place that does acupuncture.

Hi ladies,
I had my appointment yesterday, and it was amazing. I felt listened to or the first time in the TTC journey. We had a 45 minute chat, which covered all aspects of my health and family background. Talked about diet, stress, and my feelings. I explained I have a deep feeling my issues relate to implantation failire, and lee my acupuncturist said in 90% of cases he sees women know there bodies best and this should be explored. He has reccomended a specialist working for zita west the London based fertility expert, who has a fantastic reputation. I will book in for some iminology testing there. Alarm bells did ring as I know imune issues can be very expensive, but these tests are 200, and even if they prove negative it's worth it to me to have the piece of mind.
Yesterday we decided to work on building my yang, which lee thought was deficient which is causing my constant coldness, pins and needles and low blood pressure. He said improving this will help blood flow to the womb for maintaining early pregnancy. He put needle in my feet, calfs, two very deep into my belly, and between my thumb and index finger. Then placed me under a heat lamp for 30 mins.
I will update on how successful this is, but I walked out feeling relaxed, listened to, and very very optimistic. It was only 50 which included some Chinese herbs for yang called 'you GUI ke li' which I will drink twice a day. For me it was money well spent, and knowing he is affiliated to the Zita West clinic made me sure he was well trained. I will go back three times a month ongoing for 40 sessions.
Although I'm yet to have my BFP i'm very glad I went.

RKW I can relate to how you feel. I too felt listened to for the first time. My gp has been helpful for checking my bloodwork, etc but since all came back ok is forcing a wait and see approach. No real advice whatsoever. And I've been waiting for a fs appointment since October (scheduled for August this year). TCM makes me feel like at least I'm doing something good for my body

Thanks for your kind words Moorebetter :-)
Summer, I'm glad you know what I mean. I feel much more positive and like its a 'when' I get pregnant now and not an 'if'. Good luck for your FS appointment. Have you considered going privately to avoid the waiting lists? I had my appointment early, but there was a 44 week wait for a laparoscopy which I needed, and lucky my work paid for it privately, came to 2300, it was the same surgeon, same FS but much sooner. It is masses of money if you don't get help through work, but helps cut those waiting lists down.
Good luck

Moorebetter - I knew I would find you here . I remember you mentioning Acupunture. Thanks for describing your first experience! I was afraid of going, my massage therapist suggested it to me. If I don't get a bfp this cycle, I'll start next cycle. When is the best time to start the treatment? Probably before O time right?

I just realize my insurance does cover acupunture. Interesting.

Hmmm that's interesting. I had no idea you could book privately. Seeing as how I've already made it through 8 months of waiting I will be able to handle another couple months till my appointment

That's great Danielle about insurance covering acupuncture. Luckily mine is covered by insurance too.
