Interested in Acupuncture? Here's How to Get Started. 

Speak to your OB-GYN Depending upon your age and health, your doctor may recommend a more proactive approach to fertility. He or she will help you weigh your options and establish a timeline that you can follow to feel more in control. You may have blood work done and then try acupuncture to address your specific needs. But if you have certain conditions, like endometriosis, acupuncture may not be worth your time and money.

Find a licensed provider Research your state's licensing board to confirm that your acupuncturist is licensed and up-to-date on all certifications because some expire after two to four years. If that's the case for your practitioner, find someone else who's current.

Know what to expect Your acupuncturist may ask you to take a basal body temperature reading every morning, check your cervical mucus, tweak your diet and/or incorporate herbs into your daily routine. Be prepared to make a few changes to your lifestyle if necessary. And always ask questions to keep yourself informed.
