Hello there,


I've just started to do weekly acupuncture and originally it was leading up to retrieve my eggs end of January but now my husband & I have decided to wait for a funded IVF, so we think it will be around 6 to 8mths with our clinic.


I haven't mentioned this to the acupuncture yet, but I was wondering if there is a max amount of acupuncture that should be done or is it beneficial the longer you get it done?


thanks for your input.

Beneficial longer you have it.  Think of it the same as you would to eating healthy, exercising and taking to time to meditate.  It has a cumulative effect and the longer you incorporate healthy habits, such as diet, lifestyle, stress reduction and acupuncture, the more you will benefit.


I created this page for those on a wait list for IVF to allow you to be proactive.  I share many natural approaches you can implement while waiting to start an IVF
