Has anyone tried Acupuncture ?

Hi girls

Just wondering have any of you tried acupuncture and if so did you find it successful?
I'm thinking of trying it but would love to hear about other people's experiences with it.

Hi Beequeen, I didn't want to not reply to this question - I did acupuncture to try to regulate my 40 -47 day cycle when ttc. I found that after 6 weekly sessions I had a clockwork cycle of 31 days which had never happened me. It has really good effects on the body in that it relaxes you and perhaps that's what actually helps in the end. I am now 24 weeks along woth our first baby.
However, just to be clear, I would look into getting an acupuncturist who specialises in the area of fertility if you are doing it solely based on ttc. And like everything nothing is a certainty but for me it had the calming effect and helped hugely to keep me mentally sane. I found ttc to be a dreadful time it had an awful mental toll on me and in the grand scheme of things I wasn't too long at it although it felt like forever at the time. I got pregnant in September and hadn't actually been to a session for a month and my cycle had gone straight back to long as soon as I stopped so you just never know. My philosophy is that it can't hurt. And the needles are fine they don't hurt a bit.
Best of luck to you I hope you get your bfp soon x

Do you live in Dublin BeeQueen? I knew a girl who does it and she is so lovely. Looked her up there and she has a website acubaby . I never attended her but she is passionate about what she does and is a lovely girl in general.
