After 1 cancelled IVF a mo. ago(due to poor response) I had made a decision to start acupuncture (with a Fertility specialist). Have gone to 4 sessions but at the same time changed RE's and am now at Cornell and was slotted in for their next series for IVF which is to start for me in a few days.

The dillema I have is this.. would it be worth putting off IVF for a month or 2, taking the herbs combined with acupuncture and THEN going for IVF if don't conceive? Have a course of herbs/acupuncture proven to greatly help in conception over 40? I am not taking any herbs at this time (RE's advice) but wonder about the efficacy of the acupuncture alone.

I'm 43.1, had 2 pg (1 m/c, 1 abortion 5 yrs ago) FSH was tested twice: 11, 9.3. Have no other problems: HSG normal, sperm normal... I'm prepared to do DE if my next IVF fails but truly want to give this my best shot.

Thanks for your opinions
