Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
If I choose acupuncture as a fertility treatment, how long does it take before I can try to become pregnant?
A: Generally speaking, acupuncture treatments are subtler and require longer time to take effect. Depending on the condition and underlying issues, usually changes in the menstrual cycle can be detected between eight and twelve treatments. Preparing the body for conception could take four to six cycles, although attempts can be made after the third cycle.
You may find these specially formulated Traditions of Tao herbal supplements helpful in improving your chances of conception: “Women’s Wellness”, “Enduring Youth”, “Yang Exhaustion”, “Passages Plus”, and “Feminine Desire”; for your husband, “Dragon Male”. Of course, discuss with your physician before beginning any new health regime.
