I also go once a week. She said that I should also go a day after my retrieval (which is the day I'd normally go so that will save me a little money) and then the day before and of the transfer. She also said that acupuncture helps you not miscarry and can ease morning sickness. I say find another d...

Hi,

I agree with the other post....stay positive and things change day by day.

I have an FSH of 12.5 and only had 4 retrieved my last round. I started doing acupuncture to relax and also to lower my FSH, and this time around I have 10 :)

Good luck to you and keep us posted!!
