Hi everyone,

Has anyone tried accupuncture to help with endo pain during intercourse?

Any advice would be great thanks x

I have severe pain on day 2, but no pain during intercourse. I have done acupuncture for 3 months and my day 2 symptoms are much less severe. I am hoping it helps me get pregnant too, but it has definitely helped with pain.

I did acupuncture a year ago (this was before I knew I had endo) and it helped with a lot of my pain! The first day I was always really tired (so try to do it on a day where you don't have much to do) but the next day I felt amazing. It really helped with my stomach issues making them almost non existent (this was after going for a while, you won't be healed in just one acupuncture session). After my session, the doctor would adjust my back & neck as well and that would top it off. I would then go home and put some ice backs on my neck while watching TV and relaxing for the rest of the afternoon.
I even went once when I had a severe sinus infection and it was gone within a couple of days...acupuncture is absolutely worth trying at least a couple of times especially if you are in constant pain or having infertility troubles.
I am going to start going again in a couple of weeks before I start TTC. :-)
