Been having acupuncture for about a month now does it boost fertility?

Both me and dh had it for about 2 months and then gave up. we were at our lowest point then, so maybe that's why it did'nt work, or maybe we needed to carry on for longer. Who knows??

We have been doing Accupuncture for over a year now. It hasn't worked so far, but it does help me relax I'm not sure if that's theory behind it!!!

I think it does as it helped me have two successful pregnancies - I didn't use it when I mc or lost baby late. That may be because helped me relax /feel less tired (it does help that) but I think it helps.

That said you need a properly trained practicioner who you trust. Not all acupuncturists are the same.

I tried it- hated it made me really stressed and actually think it ontributed to one early mc. The only thing I found calming and think helped a little was yoga as when I felt my body was totally out of my control I learnt I could make it do things. A handstand at 35 for example. Mad but it gave me another focus and I think warmed up some of my organs if that makes sense.

I loved it....had 2 failed ivfs and my last successful one was supported by having ir again for other issues....strong Yes from me !

My successful ivf cycle was with acupuncture, I do feel that it contributed to the success.

I had acupuncture from someone with a specific interest in helping couples to concieve, and had my baby when I was 42. I cannot say it was causal, I think on balance it probably did make the difference.
