    For those who have or are thinking of having, when should i go? im terrified at how much its going to cost and i dont want it be be a waste of time.

    I has a miscarraige just over two weeks ago, should i wait until ive had my first period or just go? my body feels really run down, so would it help to go now? i keep going to call and decide to wait.

    I was going to book it last time but then fell pregnant, lost the baby at almost 12 weeks so even though im TTC should i wait until ive had a cycle so i can better be assessed?

    Im not sure if its true but you can get a boost in fertility after a d&c so should i wait first, or should i use it to aid that? any advice, hopful stories etc welcome

    i go to acupuncture and love it, it moved my Ovulation date by 4/5 days - i am a chronic late ovulator - now I'm day 14!

    as far as miscarriage, i know with people who have had one the acupuncturist usually spends a couple cycles building blood flow and reproductive strength, wait for your cycles to get regular and then encourage trying again. however a friend of mine had more than one MC, finally went to acupuncture immediately after the last one, took herbs, and got pregnant the following cycle - BEFORE she had a normal period. carried the baby to term!

    Whitglass, do you have specific fertility acupuncture or just general? x

    i've been going on and off for years (consistent is best though, best results that way) and just recently decided we wanted to casually try after charting for a year after getting off BC but using protection. noticed that my luteal phase was on the short side and i ovulated late, so i started having my acupuncturist do specific fertility treatments to prep my body for conception. been casually trying for 2 months, not charting or temping just having unprotected sex - so we'll see. so far i can say the acupuncture is directly related to my cycles becoming healthy, because for a year they were not, and the month i begin herbs and acupuncture, they normalized. i ovulate on day 14 and have a 13/14 day luteal phase now!!!

    I had 3 sessions of acupuncture (I was planning to do a block of 12 though) as well as drinking herbs twice a day, every day and it brought me my BFP after 7 previous cycles of getting nowhere. During one of the sessions he said he felt a 'block' on my left side, so he worked on that area and said it should be ok. That cycle, I ovulated from that side and fell pregnant.
