When should I have acupuncture in my menstrual cycle?
A lot of my patients ask me when is it beneficial to have acupuncture in their cycle. As acupuncture can tackle different aspects of fertility, it is beneficial to have it during most part of the cycle. Personally, I don't believe it's necessary to have acupuncture when you're bleeding heavily at the start of your menstrual cycle as your FSH levels are still low.
From around day 4-5 of your cycle, when FSH levels start to rise, having acupuncture can help with follicle growth and maturation. Once ovulation has occurred, acupuncture can help with implantation 5-7 days afterwards. The last week of the menstrual cycle, acupuncture can help with the anxiety and emotional stress of wondering if you are pregnant or not.
