RA #3

C.J. and I had our 3rd appointment with our RA (Reproductive Acupuncturist). So far, so good. The actual treatments are so uneventful and painless. I was a little naive and was picturing painful and huge needles all over our bodies, but that hasn’t been the case. Also, it forces us to sit still for 30 minutes with no distractions and rest, so it has been a nice (and expensive) way to relax.

We have been overly impressed by our RA and her dedication to our journey. She is doing a lot of research on our ‘issues’ and even reached out to one of the main acupuncture doctors for male infertility. She said protocol for new patients is to be treated 2 X week for 12 weeks, but she feels since we are so healthy and have made a lot of changes she suggested that we come 2 X week for 6 weeks. We are probably going to spread out the treatments a little more than that, but after the initial 12 treatments are over we will both get tested again to see if there are any improvements. We are really praying that God uses her knowledge and wisdom to continue the healing process of our bodies and become fertile again 🙂

    Here from ICLW- thanks for commenting on my blog!

    I have just started going to acupuncture myself- I don’t think that I could get my husband to go as well so I’m a bit jealous! I hope that it starts to help soon!

    Acupuncture can do some incredible things! I went weekly for years and I believe it helped me to have my successful IVF cycle. Good luck!!

    Happy ICLW!

    Visiting from ICLW. Good for you for doing acupuncture. I haven’t come to that fork in the road yet, but I am not ruling it out. And by the way, love the pictures of you and your husband in your blog title. 🙂
