I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

I did acupuncture but during a round of IVF not to treat my endo. I could definitly feel the blood flow concentrate in my lady parts though. If you have medical coverage then I would give it a whirl.

I started accupunture for the IVF. I have been doing it for 3 months now. It has given me a tremendous relief. In order to get through day 1 and day 2 of AF I had to take 600mg of motrin every 5 to 6 hours just to function. After the first month of accupuncture I was shocked. I took one 200mg dose on day 1 and day 2. The effects have continued. I highly recommend it. Also - huge doubter of accupuncture before I tried it.

I was a huge skeptic of accupunture. I started it for IVF. My whole life in order to get through day1 and day 2 of AF I had to take prescription motrin. I will tell you after accupunture, I o nly needed on 200mg dose on day 1. The results have been amazing. I highly recommend it.

i tried it for a small amount of time but didn't notice a different. do people find that there is a certain length of time you should do it for? would love some advice on whether this really helps or not.
