Been married almost 14 years and never been pregnant. Just started acupuncture but she wants us to do IUI. Did already, not interested.

IUI (Intrauterine Insemination)
by: Jonathan

Not so fast! ... When you had IUI before, perhaps your body wasn't ready - ie in the best state - to make use of it.

If your acupuncturist thinks that acupuncture is making your body better prepared, why not reconsider it?

I don't know what acupuncture treatment you are receiving but if it is being done according to the ideas behind traditional Chinese medicine, then it will be improving your Blood and Qi, balancing your yin and yang, and making your periods better more consistently.

Of course you hope that this will bring you to conception the usual way, (and your partner's health and the health of his sperm should not be forgotten) but sometimes IUI can improve your chances.
