Good morning all
This is my first post but have been following for a week since we got a start date for our first IVF. I've already seen what a fabulous supportive community this is, so..... I thought I'd ask for some advice.
I've seen some great advice on here about preparation in the run up to the treatment and have given up alcohol & caffeine and am mainly eating healthily and exercising. I've also been taking a higher dose of folic acid and prenatal vitamins since we first saw the GP 18mths ago. I was wondering whether there was anything else I could / should be doing?
A friend recommended acupuncture, do you guys think it's worth it? And if so, do you have any recommendations for practitioners in East London? (Please Inbox me if we're not allowed to post on here). I spoke to an IVF specialist near work yesterday and he was so blunt about how low my success chances are given my age (40) he effectively said he would hesitate to take me on as I'd impact his success rates!! I was obviously well aware that the odds are not in my favour hence trying everything I can, but was a bit shocked by his approach and would now obviously prefer to go with a recommendation rather than just credentials on a website
Any help gratefully received.
