    Hi gals,

    We have been married for 4 years and trying to have a baby from last 2 years, but so far no luck :-(

    My doc told me that due to PCOS I am not able to conceive. I was on Clomid for 4-5 cycles..but it didn't work for me. Now I am thinking of trying acupuncture. I have heard many stories where people got pregnant after taking acupuncture treatment.

    I need to know if any of you or your friends have tried acupuncture? If yes could you please recommend me a good acupuncturist in and around bay area (San Jose, Santa clara, Sunnyvale, Milpitas)

    Thanks,
    Rashy

    Hi Rashy,

    I have gone through 2 IUI & 2 IVF and had no luck. I am going for acupunture session from past 2 weeks in Northern NJ. Let me know if you need more info.

    hey...I am sorry to hear about yr situation...n thanks for your reply. Even my doc recommended me to go for IUI or IVF, but I am thinking of taking acupuncture first before going for IUI.

    So how is acupuncture working for you? i guess it's too early to say anything....i just wanted to know whether u r taking herbs along with acupuncture?

    Have you tried injectibles instead of clomid for ovulation induction? I did not get pregnant on clomid, but did so on my first round of injectibles/iui.

    I went to harmony accupuncture in milpitas while I was doing clomid and found it very relaxing. but for the iui my doc told me not to do accupunture. you can do a google search on harmony accupuncture to find their address and phone.

    Rani try harmony accupuncture in Milpitas , they are certified nationally for infertility treatments. I went there for a few months while on clomid. did not get pregnant but did see an improvement in my cycle length, they bought it down from 60 days to 35 days. when I went for my injectibles/iui, my doc told me not to do accupuncture so I stopped. they also have this indian girl working there who gives good tips on what foods to eat for pcos. she was very helpful.
