With these things in mind, I'm considering acupuncture. I've been looking at all my options here in the valley. I was surprised to find that there are a lot of options with quite a few acupuncturists specializing in female hormones and infertility. I have heard amazing success stories of women who had gone through multiple failed IVF cycles and then trying acupuncture and getting pregnant.
I know it's sort of hippy-like of me, and totally not a normal thing I would consider, but I really don't want to use drugs. I don't like the idea of forcing my body to do something, even though I may resort to that at some point. I also hear that acupuncture is a great stress relief. Since my last miscarriage last August, my hormones have seemed very out of wack, with bad skin and all. My skin is worse than it was when I was in 8th grade. That'll piss a 25 year old girl off. Acupuncture doesn't sound so bad after all.
What do you think? Have you ever tried it? Do you have any success stories to share?
