Acupuncture, Clomid, and Sperm Tests
I have been going for acupuncture for the last 3 and a half months for about 3 times a week. I take Chinese herbal liquids provided by my acupunturist daily. I feel much more balanced and enjoy my sessions. I have become less irritable and less stressed out since I have started and truly believe it's helping me.
I had a very purple coloured tongue from years of drinking. My acupuncturist says that I have issues with my liver, spleen, heart, and kidneys, as well as a cold uterus problem.
Since I started taking herbal teas and getting acupuncture treatments, doing fruit and vegetable detoxes, cutting down on drinking and really watching my diet with less acidic foods, such as meat and so forth, my tongue changed to a pinkish hue, but still has crinkle purple sides.
My periods are less painful, I am less bloated and feel less irritable, although my period is still brownish and red in colour.
My husband and I have been trying for almost 2 years without news. I am 37 and my husband is 41 this year. He drinks a lot and does not seem to think that it is a problem. We're scheduled to see the gynocologist soon and hopefully we will be able to determine if his sperm count is good.
I went to have myself checked with my doctor last year and she said everything looks good from the ultrasound sound so far. I asked to take Clomid, but she was reluctant to put me on it and told me to try for another few months. It's been more than 4 months now so I am wondering if I could do Clomid and acupuncture together to see what pans out??
Much to my acupuncturists dismay, since he only wants me to take his medication and acupuncture treatments, I'm thinking of trying Clomid. He doesn't believe in combining the two worlds together.
I am thinking of taking Clomid if my gynecologist agrees and continue with acupuncture/herbs without telling my acupuncturist. This is my instinct so far. Am wondering if you can give me any advice on this. I am starting Pilates and want to try yoga and qi gong soon too. I really look forward to hearing from you.
