Trying to conceive

Has anyone tried acupuncture to help them with conception? I'm not sure I understand how it helps but seen it does (or is supposed to at least) in various places online.

I have no idea how it works but my friend swears it worked for her

I've just started acupuncture to help me conceive and I'm going for my second session tmw. It's all quite new to me but I believe it works by bringing your body into balance, e.g there are different 'types' in Chinese medicine and I'm a cold type which means I need 'warming up' with warming foods, teas and essential oils and environments such as making sure u don't get too cold. Acupuncture I think enhances this and brings everything into balance so for example my body is able to shift whatever it is which is making me 'cold' and therefore I'll have a better environment to grow a baby in! I'm no expert in this so not certain if the above us medically correct but that's how I interpret what acupuncture does! My friend had it done and it worked for her and if u google the stats, particularly when it's used with ivf, they're pretty impressive. Too early to say if it'll work for me tho!

My friend had it and she thinks it did help balance her cycles, along with some Chinese medicine. She conceived so maybe it did work, I guess you can't prove that she wouldn't have anyway but it did seem to help her cycles

Didn't help me conceive but it was relaxing and definitely doesn't hurt.

I've definitely wondered about giving it a go too, so I'll be checking out the replies here! :-)

I've already researched this for TTC and I'm gearing up to give this a go in The new year.

I had my 2nd session this eve and I maybe a wimp as I find it does hurt a little bit :-/ the hardest thing about acupuncture for me has been the non- believers such as my mum and mother in law who are worried about me taking the Chinese herbal medicines my acupuncturist gives me - they're herbs!! I'd much rather try something natural first to hopefully conceive naturally!
