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.
h&H 9 months!!!!!

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.
