Acupuncture frequency?

Yesterday I had acupuncture for my endometriosis. As soon as I mentioned infertility I saw pound signs in the practitioner's eyes and she tried to convince me I needed to go on this £400 month plan of acupuncture twice a week along with Chinese tea and tablets. I didn't sign up for this because I was just planning to have a session once a month or something along those lines. I just wondered if anyone has had any luck with acupuncture if so, how often they had it? And has anyone tried the additional Chinese medicines?

Hi have had acupuncture and had about once a week for six sessions the. Fort nightly and then monthly.

This has helped pain but not hugely. Just helped relax me and generally cheer me up a bit. I didn't take any tablets

If any practitioner is trying to get you to sign up to a long plan and tablets I'd suggest trying someone else. You want someone who is interested in helping you and working with you and having a plan for you and that feels right for you.

Good luck
