I’ve been using acupuncture for years (migraines, allergies, anxiety), so it was top of mind for me when we were TTC. I went twice a month while we were TTC (midcycle to stimulate ovulation, and week after O to support uterine lining buildup). I think it at least helped regulate my cycles as I came off BC. I’ve been going monthly since I became pregnant. There’s a great community acupuncture place near me (much more affordable). Even if the benefits are all in my head, I find it relaxing and soothing if nothing else!

I have used accu for lots of things with great success! In my last pregnancy my Bridal Party spiked and weekly treatments kept in a healthy range until after baby came, then it went back down naturally. But I have used it for insomnia and headaches, and just general well being and I really see great results with it.

Acupuncture has traditionally worked really well for me-it helped with spotting in between periods (actually fixed it!). When I got a Paraguard, the spotting started again and my acupuncturist said she didn’t think she could fix the spotting as long as the Paraguard was in. I now have it out and am TTC, still spotting around ovulation. Hopefully this will be the month!
Worst case scenario-acupuncture feels awesome, is relaxing, and is solid self care (at least for me), so I’m going to keep it up 🙂 My insurance covers it now so I can get private sessions! I used to go to a community acupuncture clinic, where there are multiple people being treated at the same time (they talk to you first in private so you aren’t talking about health info in front of other people, and you stay clothed while they are putting the needles in). I am a huge fan.

I go to acupunctures to regulate my long and irregular period cycle. I went from 56 days cycle to 37 days cycle now. So it did help. Hopefully my cycle will become shorter eventually. It’s actually quite relaxing for me and i usually get a good nap for one hour. I would definitely recommend it especially if your insurance covers it.
