Hello! I saw this and had to tell you that I received embroyos that were donated and did acupuncture thru the fertility clinic and was glad that I did. It made the fertility drugs easier to deal with and gave me peace on some days when I did not feel I could have any by just relaxing for about an hour. I did acupuncture the day of my transfer and for two days after. I week later I found out I was indeed pregnant and then I had it done to help with the naseous feeling I had. The acupuncturist was great and he helped me just by being positive. I was glad I did it and my husband who thought it was like just having a massage to relax showed me with a smile on his face the paper when this came out this last week. I told him I was glad that I did it especially after lookking at our little boy! good luck with it and don't give up hope. I did even after fertility treatments on and off over the course of 10 years and here I am a new mother!

Congrats new mom ! Thanks for sharing your story with us. I swear by acupuncture and wish i could afford it more. My DH also did it and it seemed to increase his morphology/motility/mobility of his swimmers...plus it really helped him destress.
