I have heard conflicting information about taking herbs and then doing ART (IVF).

I have just started seeing an Acupuncturist who believes in doing herbs. Although I have not started the herbs yet he feels that 2-3 mo. would be required.

At this time I have started seeing an RE and am wondering if it is contraindicated to even start taking any herbs as they seem to impact hormones. Would taking herbs PRIOR to doing an IVF or just doing all the blood tests (Day3FSH) be negatively impacted?

I would be interested in continuing the acupuncture without the herbs but would love hearing your opinions.

Thanks so much
