Has anyone had accupunture straight after embryo transfer?

Just wanted to know your thoughts on this! I have found a accupunture place and they recommended accupunture before transfer (on the day or the day before) and right after transfer (within 4 hours!)

Just wanted to know if anyone has had this done and your thoughts on it. X

Yes I did but I still had a bfn. I would do it again (although due to the location of my clinic now, I won’t logistically be able to) because I find Acupuncture generally helpful and, whilst I know it can’t fix an unviable embryo, I believe it could help a good one to stick!

I didn't have it within 4 hrs but I had it the following day. My acupuncturist is really lovely and I found being around her and our chit chat sort of soothing. I'm pregnant now so perhaps it did have an impact? What is for sure is that it made me feel calm and relaxed :)

I’ve had it before & after with both transfers, both unsuccessful but I’ll probably still do it again for the next as there is some evidence that it can help. Good luck xx

Yes I had this too. I didn’t fall pregnant but I do think it is worth a shot as I believe in its benefits x

Yeah I’ve had it 3/4 of my cycles before and after - 2 of those I did become pregnant. I’d have it again as I feel it helps me relax a little. Good luck on whatever you decide xx

Absolutely swear by it! It would be good if you can get some sessions in on the run up to your transfer too.

Hi there I had accupunture just before and after egg transfer but after not within 4 hours she said it was fine to have it done within 24 hours so I had it the next day. I'm feeling blessed our first go worked so I can't say if the accupunture helped or not but it's certainly worth doing. I drank one glass of pomegranate juice everyday from injecting and now at 9 weeks pregnant I can't even look at the stuff lol. Good luck 💕 Xx

I know this post is a couple weeks old but i used accupunture throughtout the cycle. Im awaiting my OTD this sunday so not sure if it worked but i felt it helped as mine was followed my reki and was extremely relaxing. If i get my BFP then im going for more sessions to help the health of growth. I think you need to believe it works and embrace it fuĺly. There are studies online which greatly support this therapy. ☺

Hi there

I had been having acupuncture when hubby and I were trying to conceive naturally. I then didn’t for my first IVF round and got a BFN. I did all the way through my second cycle and especially after ET and we got a BFP. Could just be a coincidence but I think it helped me relax. Xx
