Photos of My Acupuncture Experience & How It Helped With My Fertility Anxiety

By Aela Mass |

Acupuncture for Fertility

So tomorrow’s the big day: my egg retrieval. Last night, I could barely sleep. I’ve been so excited and anxious and nervous, that it’s been hard to concentrate on anything — even sleeping. Since my incredible fertility center has a healing arts center upstairs that specializes in fertility-related stress relief, and since by 1:00 this afternoon my anxiety was at its highest, I called to schedule my first ever acupuncture appointment.

It was outrageous.

Surprisingly, I had no anxiety at all about getting poked with little needles. And the entire experience left me in a very relaxed and worry-free state.

After the jump, check out the photos from my acupuncture session.

I could barely feel the "prick" of the needles.
