Has anyone had any good results with accupuncture? My RE recommended someone and said she has had good results with him. I am planning on doing it for my FET if I can hear of some positive outcomes. I am to go at least once a week before my FET. Then, he will come to the procedure and do a treatment immediately before and then one immediately after. Does this sound familiar?

I've never looked into accupuncture before, however now that you have been discussing it I checked the net for clinics and I've read few articles...It sounds very interesting and I don't think there's no harm in trying it!
Good Luck all....

I had accupuncture alongside IVF because I had heard/read about it increasing your chances of embryo implantation. Cant prove it, but Im sure it helped me! Certainly helped me relax anyway! (Which is a welcome relief when coping with all the emotional stuff that goes with IVF)
There are a few accupuncture threads posted previously on this forum, if you go back a few pages, which you may find useful.
Wishing all of you BFP's!

I started acu and TCM (traditional chinese medicine) after my 1. IVF (failure) and am sure that is why I got naturally preg in Sept. (unfortunately lost) and am now waiting for my little girl from my 2.IVF. I have only good things to say about acu.
