Do you get acupuncture and take Chinese herbs?



  • Yes, I get acupuncture and do the herbs on a regular basis
  • No, I never have done that
  • I only tried it a few times or a long time ago

I am a firm believer in holistic medicine and have been going to acupuncture for the last 7 months....cramps have decreased, AF is brighter and not clotted ( a little TMI) and I think it helped me respons well in IVF #1 as far as egg production and am using it again for IVF #2.


It is very relaxing and I look forward to all of my sessions.


I also drink raspberry tea and do yoga. I am currently doing IVF #2, my last and final cycle. If it doesn't work, I am going to a TCM practioner/Dr. to get my hormones back in balance and will just try on our own while we decide what the next step is. My motto is to not give up until all avenues have been exhausted---or at least until there's no more $$$ in the bank:-)

Thanks for your input.

Yes I've been getting good results from acupuncture/herbs also, with regard to my cycles. My cycles are getting longer, for one thing. That is a good sign. As a bonus, I believe its helped me with my lower back problems and kidney yang deficiency. I'm hoping to try naturally, as I believe my RE has a bias about women in the 40+ category.
