I'm considering having acupuncture before and after my ET early September. Has anyone had experience with this recently at OFC? Which acupuncturist did you have? How much did it cost? On the Riverside Centre website it says you have to have a treatment before ER as well... I do not want this - did you do this?  I would love to hear about any experiences, positive or negative. Thanks!

I went to Riverside acupuncture.  It is recommended to do acupuncture for a couple of cycles before transfer and the day of transfer (before and after).  They will do those treatments at OFC.  Both cycles that I did this I conceived.  Not sure if it was the acupuncture but I felt it couldn't hurt!
