Anyone tried acupuncture with IUI?

Postby Elli » Fri May 06, 2016 12:09 pm

I'm on my third cycle of IUI - well, I was...

First cycle I only had one follicle, second cycle I had two. Both BFNs. This time around I decided to have acupuncture as I'd heard this was a good thing. Went for my first scan today and they've had to call a halt on this treatment cycle because there are FIVE big follies! (They won't continue with treatment with this many.) I've messaged my acupuncturist to tell her she's too good! I'm pleased that the signs are it's definitely working though, and pleased too that the clinic told me to try a natural cycle next time (have been on clomid so far). Would rather grow eggs with acupuncture than drugs, I guess, if I have that option.

Is anyone else having acupuncture alongside IUI? Any experiences to share?

I couldn't go ahead with the IUI this time because of there being too many follicles. So I have to wait another month, which seems like years!
Hope yours is a success.
