i am on a waiting list with my clinic to start ivf.  I have to call 4 days before my period every month to see if there is an opening starting may.  so, when would it be a good time to start acupuncture if it isnt already to late.  I have read alot of people having complications from heavy bleading to bleading during the process.


How helpful is the acunpuncture? is it more for relaxation?

Acupuncture when combined with IVF for a minimum of 12 sessions leading up to a transfer (fresh and frozen) has shied an increase in live births


When working on balancing hormones, regulating blood sugars, increasing blood flows and correcting nutritional deficiencies to improve egg quality and uterine receptivity then starting months before is beneficial.


I have not observed these stories of irregular cycles or blood flow in women who have not gone through IVF.  Only IVF.  So I expect it is related to the birth control, DHEA, growth hormones and past IVF drugs that have lead to these imbalances.

So if you have started IVF cycle already then I suggest you start your acupuncture tomorrow if yo can and have 2-3 sessions a week until your retrieval transfer


And if you are able start it even sooner.  If you allow enough time you may conceive naturally ... http://www.acubalanc...gnant-naturally


Good luck!
