Not to get too personal with the first sentence but it has been 3 months since I had a period.
For some women that would be a blessing or a good thing. For me it has been frustrating. My husband and I would love the opportunity to potentially try again to have a baby.
We cannot do that if I cannot ovulate. Ovulation cannot occur if there is no period. It’s apparent something needed to give.
I am not a fan of western medicine and have tried to avoid it as much as I can. I am the person who will be sick for days before taking a pill or have a headache for at least 24 hours before taking something for it. I would rather sleep it off if I can.
So naturally for me I started researching acupuncture to promote self healing and hopefully get my body to get back into the swing of things.
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical practice that uses the body’s acupuncture points (acu points) to trigger the body into healing itself. As of this coming Friday (12/2) I will have had 3 appointments total. So far I believe they are working.
I am following the orders given by the doctor and taking the herbs he gave me as well as exercising. The combination will hopefully re-regulate my body into its natural journey.
Fingers crossed this is the answer we have been seeking…the nice part is other than a co-pay the acupuncture treatments are covered under my insurance. That provides a little peace of mind.
In closing I would like to apologize for my lack of posting. The holidays have me distracted. I hope that after the new year I can stay consistent with my posts.
I will provide an update in the future as to how the acupuncture worked once I have more treatments.
Thank you as always for your support
