So now here I am about to embark on around 'round' and wondering if I start it sooner if it will give me a better chance at liking it or whether I should just go to massage. My RE's clinic offers accupuncture, even before and after ET, and they have an option of lazer accupunture, which I should maybe look into.
Lots of people and studies say it helps. I wish I could just get past the part of having an axiety attack the minute she leaves me in the room alone with needles sticking out all over me. Just the image of what I must look like freaks me out!
Here is a good basic 'what to know' about accupunture and infertility, specifically talking about during IUI, IVF treatments.
even the media was looking into this over 6 years ago.. wow, I guess I should have thought about this a bit sooner?
So in looking around I found this 'how to'on accupressure, maybe I can do this myself?
either way, there is something to relaxing during this process and allowing yourself the time to chill out. I have just started meditation...the art of quieting the mind. Its really HARD! I can do it for about 30 seconds and thats about it. Its easier when someone else is working on you like in a reike session or massage as the movement and touch is almost mezmorizing which helps you feel a bit sleepy and relaxed. I need to look more into this. I know stress plays a factor on infertility and most stressors you cant take out, but I guess the way you deal with them is something that can be controlled.
even Britney Spears knows how to relax...
