I have done 5 or 6 acupuncture treatments. Trying to conceive. I got my period 3 days after my 1st one and it was the first time I had a pleasant period no cramps. However my period was due 4 days ago...I have had the uncomfortable cycle is about to start feeling for over a week now but nothing. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. I am pretty upset because I had a ver regular 26-28 day period. Could it be the acupuncture or the herbs?? I was very optimistic going into this but now quite nervous!!

Does your acupuncturist specialize in fertility? Mine does and we do CD3 or 4, then 3-4 days later, then 3-4 days later.  They stop before ovulation and don't start again until next CD3 or 4.  I know of people who have had acupuncture regulate their cycle but not sure about delaying it.

 

Not sure about herbs.  I never took anything but maybe if you post what you are taking someone would have some advice.

 

I usually have a regular cycle but it seems at least once when we are gearing up for fertility stuff I get delayed and I just figure it is stress of it all.

 

I hope AF comes soon and hope everything works out for you!!!

No he doesn't specialize in fertility. I wonder if I should stop going.... I am taking Xiao Yao San. The first 3 weeks I was taking Gui Pi Tang. I stopped taking today thinking maybe that is what was doing this. I have all my normal pms symptoms but nothing.

I would try to find an acupuncturist specializing in fertility but it may not be related at all.  Our bodies are weird and do their own thing sometimes lol

Mine specialized in fertility too and actually helped bring on a period when I was late and irregular. My guess would be the herbs. And my clinic supported acupuncture but not herbs while I was cycling.

I'm 39 with endo

 

IVF #1: March 2016: Long protocol: Suprefact (200)/Menopur (225)

    9 follicles => 4 eggs => 3 mature => 3 fertilized (ICSI) => 2 blasts (one transferred, one frozen)

    BFN

 

IVF #2: June 2016: Microdose flare: Suprefact (40 BID)/Menopur (150)/ Gonal (300)

     7-10 follicles (?) => 12 mature eggs => only 4 fertilized w/ICSI => transferred 2 @ 3days and 1 blast frozen

     BFP:  day 14 beta = 93, day 18 beta 557 (37h doubling time)

     Ultrasound July 21 = single, live intrauterine pregnancy

     .... so hopeful it sticks!
