MsGinkgo :  I would find an acupuncturist who specializes in fertility/infertility. My acupuncturist has told us to hold off 2-3 DAYS before, she has never said anything about waiting 2-3 weeks so I don’t think it’s some sort of TCM remedy (though what do I know…lol).  I would explore other options…that would be a red flag for me.

MsGinkgo :  I recently started seeing a fertility acupuncturist and have nothing but great things to say. He never mentioned anything about DH not ejaculating for 2-3 weeks. To be honest that sounds really odd! Does this person specialize in fertility acupuncture? If not I would see one who does. Mine came highly recommended from a friend who goes to school for acupuncture and later found out he works with the top IUI/IVF offices on LI.

I see my acupuncturist once a week and it lasts about 45 mins total. Everytime I leave I feel so amazing – as if I just left the spa – super relaxed. Since starting my skin has cleared up, I sleep better, I overall feel really good and my cycle became more regular. My acupuncturist said to start BDing every other day starting CD8. Once I get a + opk to BD everyday until I no longer have any O signs. I’ve seen him a total of 8 sessions so far. First cycle he placed me on these herbal meds that are supposed to strengthen my uterine muscles. Second cycle he had me taking these drops called uterine tonic that is suppose to help uterine circulation. Second cycle I found out I was pregnant! I truly feel the acupuncture helped so if your insurance covers it why not – just make sure this person knows what they are doing.
