Thread: Acupuncture in Western Sydney??

  1. #1

    Default Acupuncture in Western Sydney??

    Hello everyone,



    My first IVF cycle has been cancelled due to my poor response to the injections (not many follies). I'm thinking of trying acupuncture for my next cycle in January, and I was wondering if anyone can recommend an acupunturist in Western Sydney? Any other info about the efficacy of acupuncture would also be appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Vicki

    Pansy - I have made an appointment with John Crothers for this Saturday, so fingers crossed he will be able to help me!

    VIcki - good luck for saturday hun and from my experience ask questions galore, I asked a question every time they stuck a needle in a different point as I wanted to know why there, what does it do to help and how long will it take ... i think my acupuncturist saw me as the only patient that didnt relax and stop asking questions lol but once the needles were in *yawn* it is sooo peaceful and resting i used to doze off and send my prayers to the universe lol

    Hi ladies
    I was just looking at what you are talking about with acupucture and i think there was a query about this a week or so back at how it works for fertility and all. Anyway i think her name is SUSHEE the moderator, she reckons that acupucture in asian cultures is used for insomnia and some other disorders but was never used for fertility that she heard of. Sorry to put a dampener on the whole acupuncture thing, but she did reckon chiropractor's have been known to help in this department though and through family experience i think it does help, but then again if you find acupuncture helps sooth the soul and relax you, it may well be worth a try!!!!!

    I am not in the same situation as you with IVF but i am TTC #2 after 5.5 yrs of no contraception, good luck to all of us trying for that BFP

    Acupuncture is definitely used to assist women with fertility issues - my acupuncturist is a specialist in this area.

    Hi Pansy,
    It went well, although he came across as a bit odd LOL. But hey, if it works, I don't care if he wears a tutu! He put 4 needles in me: 2 in my leg, and one each over my ovaries, and I have some homeopathic remedies to take. I can't say I've noticed any difference so far, but I'm sure it will take a few treatments for anything to happen. All in all, I'm pleased so far. Thanks for asking!
    Vicki
