I went once a week for 6ish weeks got got pregnant that cycle (after 6 months of trying), so I am definitely a believer!

I had 6 weeks worth, paid for another 6 week slot and found out I was pregnant a week later! This was our 11th cycle trying. It’s still very early but I’m cautiously optimistic. I had the acupuncture through a natural fertility centre so I was seeing a naturopath at the same time. In my head I was going to give it 3 months before moving on to clomid, not because I didn’t think it was helping, but because it was getting so hard emotionally.

I started going to accupuncture after 10 months TTC, 4 cycles of Clomid, an A+ SA from my Darling Husband, and zero pregnancies. It wasn’t covered by insurance, and $80 a week was steep, so I gave it 100% effort for 8 weeks. It didn’t help at all (not shortening my long/irregular cycles, not making my period any more manageable, etc). So I stopped going. We were eventually diagnosed unexplained and only got pregnant after 16 months and Clomid + trigger shot + IUI.

It shortened by periods within a month and I was pregnant by month 3 of going. My cycles were long/irregular. I went once a week. I just stopped going when I entered my 2nd trimester.
