Help with IVF Cycle
(New London, CT)
I am currently going through IVF #2 --IVF #1 was in August 2012. Since the first one failed I have been seeing an acupuncturist weekly. I would have likely continued with acupuncture and not undergone another IVF if I didn't feel time was ticking...(I will turn 38 next month.)
I was taking herbs until I started the IVF protocol. The infertility concerns lie with my husband, he is 34, (who also is going to acupuncture weekly.) He has low morphology (4%) but his motility and counts are on the rise.
My acupuncturist didn't mention specific foods to eat except to eat "warmer" foods and keep my feet warm.
As far as why IVF #1 was not successful, the RE stated that my ovarian reserve is good, egg quality good, fertilization was good. I am wondering if you have any advice for food choices for fertility, whether I should have an acupuncture session prior to the transfer and post transfer (Is this done on the same day?)
I am also not drinking caffeine, alcohol, and doing daily meditation as well--which is different this time around.
Thank you your time,
