Accupunture - how did you know where to go?

Postby boonie » Wed Aug 08, 2007 9:45 pm

I know the best way to figure out where to go is to get referred but I have no one to ask. I've called 3 places that specialize in infertility and the last place is like half of what the other two charge.

I'm not sure how to decide where to go???

Ask your RE's clinic, they should give you a couple of acupuncturists that they refer patients to....

Good luck!!

Hi, Vicky

Two years ago, we lost our little girl at 5 months along. Along with the emotional devastation, my body was a wreck and my cycle was extremely irregular. We TTC for another year with no luck. I found an acupuncture place by searching online and I've been going there for a year. It's been proven that acupuncture and traditional Chinese herbs improve IVF success by about 15%, so I was interested even if I couldn't conceive on my own. Within three months, my cycles were amazingly regular. Another year has just passed. We still haven't been able to conceive on our own, but I just turned 46. I went to a fertility clinic and had a number of tests done. The doctor indicated that he was very impressed at how healthy my reproductive system was - everything looked great except for the small number of eggs that I have left rattling around in there. So it's just that I've run out of eggs, which acupuncture cannot cure. I am now hoping for an egg donor.

I'm in BC, Canada - the clinic is in Vancouver: www.acubalance.ca
They have a strong network connection with other clinics; perhaps they can refer you to one that is close to you?
