Acupuncture to Increase Fertility?

Has anyone heard about/tried acupuncture to help with conceiving? I read something online about it and was curious. Some say it helped them conceive. I am going onto cycle #3 of TTC so by all means I have not been trying long but I figure if it helps speed up the process then why not?

Hey Ashley, I have been doing acupuncture once a week and Chinese herbs to help with my infertility, PCOS and possible endo... nothing so far so let me know how it goes for you! We have been TTC for 6 months and Just recently been unoficially diagnosed with endo(need to get laparoscopy soon to diagnose it officially). We have been a fertility specialist and going to a different one today to get a second opinion.
I heared great things about acupun****ure, so I hope it helps you a lot!!! Im still waiting lol

A friend of mine was diagnosed with secondary infertility, lost 40 pounds, and did acupuncture weekly for several months. We have the same RE and she was told she had a 5% chance to conceive naturally but she did! She is now due in about a month. I would really like to do it as well but my insurance doesn't cover it and hers did.

Hey, Ashley. My coworker tried acupuncture when she was TTC #1. It ended up working for her and she actually recommended it to me when I was TTC my first. I didn't do it because I ended up pregnant before I made the appointment. I'm thinking of trying it this time around.
