My sister has been raving about the accupuncture she's recently started in Edmonton for stress, headaches, muscle tension, etc.  I'm a lover of massage, but was thinking about giving it a try. Seems like it's considered safe during IVF.

 

Any heartland patients know the clinic's stance on the treatment or have any recommendations for a practitioner??

 

cheers


I'm 41 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)

.... it stuck and we welcomed our boy March 2017!

back on this crazy journey again: June 6, 2018: FET #1...

I second that and am also a Rebecca patient. :-). I'll see her tomorrow.
It was long, awful & hard. We got very lucky and didn't run out of both emotional and financial resources. We saw some of the most beautiful of people in our lowest moments. Baby Girl arrived Apr 10/2018

I know Rebecca at Family Acupuncture takes appointments until 6:15.  But I honestly find that she's SO busy that you have to book those evening appointments weeks in advance.
