where do needles for acupuncture go for fertility treatments?


New member
I'm interested in trying acupuncture for fertility and I would like to know where they place the needles. I'm not asking for specifics, just general location like in the back of the neck or stomach or legs.

It's going to depend on what the TCM (traditional Chinese Medicine) diagnosis is... but generally, you should expect to have some needles in your lower legs (near the knees, near the ankles or on your feet) and a few either in your abdomen or your back. And it's also possible there will be one/some near the wrist.If you're nervous about the needles, let your doc know. There are things she can do to "distract" the nerves so you hardly feel a thing.Good luck!
