I decided to skip it last time because it just felt like added stress to me. The fertility acupuncturists that are associated with my clinic aren't convenient and I felt like adding another appointment was just going to be more work than it was worth. In addition, it isn't covered by my insurance, so paying for something completely out of pocket when I was on the fence about it seemed like a silly idea.
What's different this time around? Well, in reality not much. I do have some money in an FSA that ended up not being spent on IVF #1 that could go toward acupuncture, but the clinics are still out of the way, and I'm still not a huge fan of needles- especially ones that just sit in your body for awhile. Creeps me out in a big way!
I've heard that it is the most relaxing thing ever and that I will feel SO much better after I just try it, but I'm not big on new things.... especially new things with needles. Yeah, and yesterday I told you that I wanted to do another fresh cycle instead of frozen.. please find my logic and return it to me!
I think my biggest reason for considering it this time around is relaxation. Last cycle I was very, very relaxed, but I have a feeling after the events of the last few weeks I'm stress level may be a little higher the next time around.
So tell me, infertility aside- on a scale of 1 to 10 how much does acupuncture relax you?
