After second failed IVF 2 months ago, I decided to try acupuncture to prepare my body for the 3rd try. Two days ago, we saw a positive line for the first time in our 1 year and 7 months try. When I called the acupuncturist and I was told to stop all little Chinese herb pills. Today, I had an appointment. I was given 3 foods, Dates to eat 8-10 pieces a day, goji berries (they were too busy to explain how to take and we didn’t get a call today so I don’t know what to do with this), Yam powder drink to drink every morning.
I was looking for how to eat goji berries and found it is commonly recommended for pregnant women in China but in North America, it is better avoided.
Chinese yam is also to be avoided in North America.
Dates is for folic acid, but prenatal vitamin already contains 1000mg. Is overdose safe?
So, until I go there next time, I decided not to take any. I will be out of country so I cannot call to ask. Is there anyone who have taken or heard of them?
