I don't have PCOS but I do believe in acupuncture. After 2 m/c I started going and got preg in 2 mo with my son and now ttc 2 after no luck I went back to acupuncture and got preg again right away even thought this one ended in a blighted ovum I do feel it works and I'll be going back again when I able to try again. Acupuncture has helped my mom after her stroke and she had a complete recovery, my brother has a ski accident and they wanted to cut open his knee and he tried acupuncture first and it worked. It's also just very relaxing. I also notice after every treatment I feel relaxed energized and I sleep great. If I could afford to go weekly I would. GL let us know how it went.

Thanks! Gives me a little hope My appt went great. The accupuncture lady doesnt believe i have PCOS bc i dont have the classic symptoms of the disorder. The only thing i have is basically cysts, and they could have showed up for whatever reason. But it realyl helped me get out how i was feelign as she asked lots of questions and was SOOOO helpful. She said i need an action plan and need ot see my doc and tell him how i feel about him diagnosing me with PCOS and wanting an update ultrasound in Jan, just so i can ease my mind. I def feel better and i slept great last night as well.
