I hear lots of ladies talking about acupuncture during IVF but has anyone tried hypnosis - don't know but it might be worth a try. A study carried out in Israel showed that IVF rates doubled with hypnosis before and after transfer.

With my OE..went straight to doctors office after an IUI..he was a psychiatrist who had certification in hypnosis..I got pg from that cycle! I also did it after my DE transfer which resulted in my BFP!
I am a real advocate of it!

I used hypnosis for my fresh and frozen de cycle, and I didn't even get a chemical (which at least I got with my own eggs...).

However, I am sure it has a similar effect to acupuncture if done right.

One question I have though, how can something like hypnosis help us when stress is proven to not hurt our attempts?

My understanding is, hypnosis has less to do with relaxation and more to do with mind over matter..

I wonder what they tell you to do...

Just relax a lot?

It FEELS like acupuncture. That's an interesting comparison. The relaxation is acupuncture-like.

I tried hypnotherapy during two failed DE transfers.

It did not work for me.

I don't believe in it, and its also very expensive; I think I paid at least $100 per session.
