In looking ahead to our next cycle, my RE wants me off any herbs before starting a cycle. I asked my acupuncturist, 'at what point do i stop taking the herbs?' (i am presently taking powder form chinese herbs picked by the acupuncturist)
his response was i didnt have to stop. so of course in this conundrum, i am staying out of it. i will let the docs talk it over and see what transpires. i would like to stay on the herbs if it is safe to do. my acupuncturist went on further to say in taiwan, pts who go thru ivf are given herbs and continue taking them when cycling and do fine... the concern is drug interactions and certain herbs causing the blood to thin which could lead to bleeding potential.
so out of curiosity, has anyone who has gone through IUI/IVF done so while taking chinese herbs during the cycle?
any comments and experiences are welcome. thank you in advance! and good luck to all!
