Holy cow, BFP after acupuncture!!! Been trying 4 years!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

We've been TTC for 4 years, using alternative healing modalities for various reasons.  I have cystic ovaries and DH has kinda mediocre sperm.  In early January we both started twice weekly acupuncture from a Chinese-trained TCM doctor and voila!  I can't believe it!!!  Did acupuncture in the past, but only once weekly with a different practitioner.  Just wanted to give a shout out for the acupuncture and herbs.  I had just about given up on ever becoming pregnant again.  I'm almost 6 weeks along, just tested positive this morning.

Congratulations!!!

 

We started acupuncture and herbs in January too (but only trying for a year).  No BFP yet, but I'm 2DPO right now, so here's hoping!

I know the forum is a little inactive, but I am hoping someone will see.  Congrats on your BFP.  I am exploring acupuncture myself.  I am curious where the put the needles.  Hands, belly?  Thanks!

I am getting accupuncture right now as well.  I didn't get pregnant with this first cycle of injectables and IUI doing it, however I feel very relaxed after I go, and if nothing else that is a great benefit.

 

They put my needs, depending on where I am throughout my cycle, in my feet, knees, sometimes belly, hand/arm, and head (sometimes on my forehead, sometimes on the top of my head, sometimes in my ears.)

 

My accupuncturist said it would take at least 3 months of going once a week to start working properly.
