    Hi Glimmer, how are you doing?

    I did acupuncture for 3 months , I had relief in PMS symptoms & was feeling good generally, but no success in TTC so I stopped taking few months back & didn't take in IUI cycle, in fact I stopped all supplements except folic acid. I am thinking whether to re-start acupuncture

    Any experiences with acupuncture in India?

    Hi Ladies

    I went back to my tcm doctor last week after my miscarriage earlier this year. Because l felt after my mc my periods are relatively haywire. Then the doctor said l have to recover and heal first for the next 2 months and then can continue trying again. So l have re-embarked on this journey again.

    Hi /yettobemom,
    How after do you do acupuncture in a month? Mine is usually twice a month but l have herbs to take every day. Morning and Evening. Does your acupuncturist gives you herbs to take as well?

    Hi glimmer,
    No herbs for me, they did daily for 1week then twice a week. Isn't this sounding too much? That's why I stopped it as I doubted whether they are doing it correctly here in India. I have heard max they do once a week other places.

    Hi YTBM

    No l dont know know if that's the right way. My tcm doctor didnt start acupuncture on my instantly. I have to plot my BBT daily and the drink herbs then she monitor my ovulation then after 2 months only she started acupuncture for me. For the first month l did acupuncture only once in that month. Subsequently the second month l did twice and that was the month l conceived but sadly ended in a mc.
    Do you remember where does he/she put in the needles? For me its on my head, my tummy, legs and wrist part near the thumb.

    Hi glimmer,
    I remember. He put on 4 on legs, 6 on tummy,1 on wrist, 1 near thumb & 1 near elbow. He did for a week continuously then twice a week. Even after ovulation same points. as far as i know there is no TCM specialist actually in India they are all acupuncturist, they know nothing about herbs.

    Hi YTBM

    I cannot remember how many needles exactly. But l can remember its 1 needle on the middle of my head. I remember this very very well. After putting in all the needles she will place like a hot lamp on my stomach.
    I don't know what is that for though.

    Hi glimmer,
    For how much time they keep needles & the lamp?
    I got needles for 20 minutes.
    Also do you remember herbs names?
    Is Vitex chaste berry & ginseng one of them
    I read fertility cure by randine Lewis..it's about TCM very nice book, but I got disappointed by the acupuncturists here

    (Pls delete messages from your inbox, I tried to PM you but bounced back)

    Hi

    Yes it's around 20 to 30 minutes. It's a mixture of herbs. I don't know what they're also. The assistant will mix various types of powder and it'll be divided into different sachets for me for consumption for one week.

    My periods are random ( have always been) unless I am on BCP- which was for years. I quit the pills 8 months ago. 4 normal cycles and then no period.Provera induced one period and again none. The doctor prescribed provera again. I dint take it yet. Pretty soon the Ob-Gyn is going to put me on clomid. I want to get help from acupunture before that to see if it will help. I am sick and tired of pumpimg all the harmones into my body.
    I want to do things naturally if I can. Will keep you all updated.
    I am here looking for some support.
