    I tried it twice in a 2week span. After not having a period for 6 months (Pcos) I managed to O and become pregant between the two sessions. The second session felt weird and uncomfortable so I never went back.

     

    Looking bacK, I really give acupuncture credit n my BFP. it was the only thing this year I did any differently. Didnt love The experience itself though.

    I’m not TTC yet but I go for endometriosis and have hopes that it will help me some day when I am TTC. I absoutely love it, couldn’t recommend it more. Except it’s very pricey. I pay about 70 a session out of pocket so I can only really budget twice a month.

    I had a trial session education type thing for school where they put two needles in my arm.  Honestly, I liked it!  It felt more like someone was putting pressure on my skin with thier finger than having a needle stuck in me.  It was relaxing!  I would sign up for sessions if I had more money!

    @ChuckNorris:  🙂  Good vibes your way!  I think you already told me this, but when are you trying?  We’re hoping to try at the end of this month or the next…

    I have HMO but she does take insurance but the difference in monthly cost for a PPO only saved me a little and I was worried that if I had to have surgery again it would cost more with my ppo where my HMO covered everything. I may change to PPO this year though since we might start TTC and would want to go more than 2 times a month. Also, I didn’t mention before but one of my coworkers was having a hard time concieving and she started seeing my acupuncturist and taking herbs and within 4 months she was pregnant!  Best of luck, I’ll be waiting for a great update from you:)

    @ChuckNorris:  I initially started going to acupuncture back in January as coming off BCP really messed with my hormones and I was a moody mess!  It helped tremendously with the hormone regulation and then we started focusing more on fertility.  I had very irregular cycles so the last cycle we focused on “stimulating” my ovaries (LOL..sounds so funny) with this little electrical machine hooked up to the acupuncture needles and that was the cycle I got my BFP!  So even though I went weekly for about 6 months, that was really only 3 period cycles for me. 

    I used my Flex Spending account through my health insurance to pay for each treatment so at least I save some money on taxes. 

    I’m about 9 weeks now and have been continuing to do acupuncture throughout my pregnancy thus far. According to him, it really helps decrease the risk of MC as well as any KU symptoms.  After 9 weeks, he doesn’t feel the need for me to go weekly anymore, but can come in for symptom management.

    Anyways, long story short…I’m a big fan!! It may be more expensive but I think it’s worth it!!  good luck!! that’s great about your darkest OPK yet!!

    @ChuckNorris:  My husband is an acupuncturist so I get it whenever I want but I was seeing a fertility specialist before I got pregnant to get my period back.  I LOvE it!!!  I find it totally relaxes me and brings me to a totally different state.  It is a little hard now tho because I cant really lie on my back anymore but as soon as she comes out i am getting a treatment!! 🙂

    I’ve had it for another condition, but would certainly consider it for fertility at some point.
