Hi ladies, I'm new to this forum. Me and my husband have been trying to conceive for three years. I had an ectopic pregnancy last year which was just horrible. After continuing to try and having various tests it was discovered that I have a low egg count. my husband's sperm count and mobility are good. So we are in the process if IVF. My injections should hopefully start at the end of the month and then it's fingers crossed I guess!

I have read so many articles on how acupuncture can be really effective just before and after embryo transfer. I have been looking for reputable practitioners with not much luck.

does anyone know of any good ones in the Manchester/Stockport area?

Would be grateful for any advice!

Hi littlebean,

The best place to start would be http://www.acupuncture.org.uk/ where u can do a search by post code...am sure some other ladies would come along here and give u advice based on personal experiences in ur area but u can always find a few through the link and make enquiries and decide after speaking to a few of them.

My only suggestion would be to find and go with someone who specialises in fertility as acupuncture is for a whole load of problems and u ideally want someone who can help with this particular issue so when u speak to them or get references, just make sure they are well trained for fertility issues...Hope this helps and good luck with ur IVF cycle ^hugme^ ^hugme^

Hi, I see an amazing acupuncturist called Abbie who practices in Chorlton and Prestwich (web link below), I've been treated by her for 3 years now for other health problems and most recently to support the IVF. She is amazing and I can highly recommend her. x

Thanks Ast, I found a great acupuncturist in Whalley Range. She is going on holiday around my egg collection/transfer stage so if her recommendation doesn't come through then that info would be great.

I can recommend Abbie in Chorlton (and prestwich) too. She's been amazing and I saw her throughout my treatment and got a bfp first time.

Interestingly there is a cochrane systematic review that synthesises all the research trials into acupuncture for ivf and they concluded that there was some evidence for it beng used on the day of embryo transfer to aid implantation. We did this and got our bfp first time n
