Acupuncture for TTC/Fertility
Have any of you tried this? What was your experience? I had my first appt last night with an acupuncturist I've been seeing on-and-off for years (she's a Chinese medicine doctor from Beijing). She put needles in my stomach, arms, legs and feet, mostly focusing on my lower abs where the uterus/ovaries and such are. I was able to take a nap while the needles were in, so that was relaxing! She told me she doesn't agree with Western culture thinking it takes a year of active TTC to be considered having a fertility problem, and in her training 3 months with no PG is considered a fertility problem. She thinks it will be hard for me to get pregnant (which is what I have been thinking), so she wants me to come for acupuncture once a week until I conceive. Plus she has me taking Chinese herbs (on top of everything else) that she thinks will help with my "problems". I'm just grateful DH and I have good benefits for covering acupuncture, but if it takes a while at some point we'll be paying out of pocket.
