    Hi SSB,

    Acupuncture helps in ovulation and very good for relaxation. I do electra-acupuncture just before ovulation. But I don't think that alone is sufficient if DH has sperm issues. I am taking acupuncture sessions with IUI, its helps a LOT to keep me relaxed..

    Hi SSB,

    I do ovulate naturally. When they monitored my ovulation cycle continuously one in 6 cycles I didnt ovulate. Thats why to ensure that I ovulate during IUIs, the doc has suggested a very low dosage of clomid (25mg). When I went to acupuncture, the therapist advised me to do basal body temperature (BBT)chart and examine the mucus. Based on the results of both it seems like I ovulated. I didn't take blood test or anything to confirm it. But the therapist did assure that her patients sees good results in ovulation after doing Acupuncture. I mainly go for Acu for relaxation. I am very anxious person, without even my knowledge I do bite my nails, and stay nervous for long time. I see very good difference after the session.

    During IUI, the therapist advised for one session just after the HCG shot and another one after 6 days to help implantation. I am planning to take those for this cycle.. Fingers crossed.... :)

    Good luck dear..
