    Acupuncture and IVF - does it help

    Has anybody tried acupuncture whilst undergoing IVF? Did it help / work? Any good recommendations of any acupuncturist?

    Just starting to look into this as IVF has been unsuccessful.

    a recent study said that acupuncture did not affect ivf results. http://www.ivf.net/ivf/acupuncture_d...nce-o3842.html


    however, you will find many women, myself included, who disagree with that study, as well documented as it was. there are other studies that suggest otherwise.

    Hi ggai. I'm afraid I don't know anything of the acupuncture side. Hope that it helps you.

    However, may I ask where you tried the IVF that didn't work? Thanks!

    diagnosis/maternal is just as important as the lab/clinic.

    if you do a search, you will find a few threads on the fertility drs in hk, and their pros and cons. if you know your diagnosis, make sure you ask the dr how they plan on treating it.

    I have a friend who was trying for 8 years. She eventually tried acupuncture and after six months of that (the recommended course by the acupuncturist), she conceived. I'm just not sure whether or not she conceived naturally or whether she did IVF again. She went to Troy Sing.

    I have tried accupuncture and chinese herbs and after almost 3 years of trying I fell pregnant after only 2 months of treatment. I REALLY DO THINK it helps. Give it a try, it won't hurt. Besides it's really relaxing. I see Gianna Buonacore at IMI. http://www.imi.com.hk/

    Good luck to you.

    Has anybody heard of or tried Dr. CK Sum of "Health & Joy Traditional Chinese Medicine Clinic" for acupuncture?
