Acupuncture After Miscarriage
(British Columbia, Canada)
I wrote to you a couple of months ago about my elevated FSH levels, but now I have a question about acupuncture after miscarriage. I started to see an acupuncturist a few weeks ago and she told me that I have Kidney Yang, Spleen Qi and some mild blood stasis (varicose and spider veins) deficiency. I also have cold hands and feet a lot, especially during the fall and the winter.
I had a couple of acupuncture treatments in July and had a 5 day long period at the end of the same month. I continued with 2 more treatments in August and I found out that I was pregnant at the end of August. I told my acupuncturist about my pregnancy and she adviced me not to take any further treatments during pregnancy. I wasn't also given any herbs.
Well, I miscarried in mid-September. I was devastated, as I was only 6 weeks along. This was my second pregnancy. Both pregnancies were over at 6 weeks. I went back to my acupuncturist last week and she told me that she read something in one of her books about 'slippery fetus'. What does this term mean? Do I need to take some herbs?
I also have prescription for Clomid from a fertility clinic, but I am hesitant to take it. Do you have any advice or suggestions for me? I attached my graph. I stopped charting my temperature once I was sure that I was pregnant. The graph shows ovulation on Day 19. My LH hormone surged that day (I used the LH urine testers).
Thank you for your help,
