[quote=OnlyNeed1]We’re getting ready to do our second IVF, and since we’re going to have to borrow $, want to up our chances. So, I’m looking into acupuncture for one, or both of us. I know there are people out here that have done it, but I didn’t see a thread for just acupuncture.
Anyone done it (male/female) and seen a difference? Considering it’s more money, how many treatments? Did you both go? Would it be more beneficial for him, since he has low motility? Any info would be greatly appreciated!![/quote]
I had accupuntcure done before and after my IVF and during that subsequent pregnancy. I am also getting it done now with my FET cycle.
You should find a accupuncturist that speciallizes in fertillity issues and have a consultation.
I think anything is worth a shot, when you are investing so much time and energy. I was able to buy packages of appts. at a discounted rate, which helped me a lot, cause it adds up. I had never done accupuncture before my whole IVF experience. If anything, it trully helped to relax me, maybe not right away, but a couple hours after the appt. I would feel very sleepy. As I’m sure you know, dealing with IF is a very stressful time so any kind of added relaxation helps a lot. It also helped me a lot with nausea.
If I could only afford a few appts, I would do right before ER and transfer, as well as right after both procedures. My DH didn’t have any appts. since we knew were were going to do ICSI/TESE I didn’t see the point in adding more $.
I hope this helps you a bit.
