Acupuncture - does it work? Any success stories?


Hi ladies,

I'm thinking of starting acupuncture for my unexplained fertility issues, 18 months TTC. I have luteal phase bleeding, but normal 30 day cycle. Has anybody found acupuncture useful? Any advice, or positive results?

Thanks in advance!

Hi jennahlou :-)

Me too, I'm willing to try anything but I don't want to waste money if it has little or no effect. There is an acupuncturist near me who is align to zita west the fertility expert, and has taken her classes, so I might give him a call and find out about costs. We are getting married this year though so don't want to be spending s if it doesn't work.

Hard to decided what's best sometimes! Maybe it's worth trying, if only to keep me positive.

I'm interested in trying it too. I posted this thread with a link to an article about it on one of the other forums:

An interesting article about TCM

I did acupuncture for four months last year and fell pregnant on the fourth month. I think it really works but you have to work with it as well, I mean, you need to live a healthy lifestyle. All the best to you.

Oh yes Moorebetter please do! I rang an acupuncturist today and made an appointment for next week. Fingers crossed it will help with TTC and the stress it can involve too. :-)

You don't need to go overboard....lol! My Naturopath advised me to eat good fats such as nuts, salmon and avacado as they are good for conception. Just eat well, not too much junk, alcohol or coffee but you can have some, you need to enjoy yourself. Hope you get your sticky bean soon.
