I love acupuncture!

I loved it! It was very relaxing and I felt good after we were done. I also really liked the doctor. She went over my treatment history and asked me questions about my menstrual cycles. Then she had me lay down on my back and she started the acupuncture. She put four needles in my lower belly to encourage blood flow to my uterus. She also put one in my ear, one in the top of my foot and one in my ankle. She turned heat onto the ones in my lower belly. She brushed her hands over the tops of the needles and asked if I could feel them. I could :) I laid down for about 30 minutes.

I am scheduled to go in again on Monday, which should be just after my IUI's. She said to let her know where I am at in my cycle and she will adjust the needle placement accordingly. I am really happy I am doing this alongside my treatments. Western medicine meets Eastern medicine :)

  1. I'm glad you liked it! I always feel like I'm giving things my best shot when I go :) Good luck with your IUIs this weekend!!

  2. So glad it went well! What did you think about the one in the ear? That's the one that always hurt the most to me. You're PIP is hilarious too.

  3. bran - I could definitely feel the one in my ear the most. Plus I accidentally bumped it. Ouch :/
