    Dear,

    I am starting IVF in few months from now. My gynec told me though there is no proof that Acupuncture increases the success rates, but it is said to keep stress levels under control and that helps IVF. I have started ny breathing exercises and will start Acupunture one month before IVF.

    Acupuncture mainly focus on calming down the anxiety and increase blood flow to the uterus.

    Either way, both of these are helpful while TTC. Good blood flow to the uterus helps in better implantation. There are no side effect for this treatments.

    When there are no side effects, what's wrong in trying. This is my attitude.
    You never know what contributes to the success of IVF.

    good luck.

    Hello Ladies,

    I found this pdf on Acupunture and thought of sharing it with you all...

    View attachment Acupuncture_for_Infertility.pdf

    I am also thinking about it since my fertility doctor advised me to go for it....

    Hope this pdf helps clarify some doubts regarding Acupunture....

    My journey of TTC was successful and I owe all the success to acupuncture.I had 2 failed fresh IVF cycles and when I was preparing for an third attempt I wanted to try acupuncture.I conceived naturally in the cycle when I went for acupuncture.It's a miracle.Only thing that was different in the cycle was that I was not thinking about TTC and enjoyed all my sessions of acupuncture and I was able to taste the success.Hope my post is helpful.

    Thank you "Ihavehope"..
    I am sure you will taste the success soon.It's good that you have decided on taking an appt. Do check if the acupuncturist has any experience treating fertility patients.It's not a must but it will boost your confidence if you hear any success stories from the clinic.Discuss your TTC story in detail so that he can treat you well..

    My best wishes.

    I started acupuncture from day 4 of the cycle.It used to be 2 sessions per week.So I attended about 12 sessions.4 of them were after the pregnancy was confirmed.The acupuncturist also gave me some chinese herbs and advised me to take them with luke warm water twice everyday.He said that it helps in maintaining the right temperature for the abdomen to aid conception.Hope this information is useful.Lots of baby dust to you!!
