TCM as an IVF Booster

I have included TCM as a booster to my current IVF round. I started taking chinese herb daily for a month in dec/jan followed by accupunture once a week starting mid jan and now i have progressed into twice weekly accupunture. The accupunturist recommended that i do one session each before and after for both egg retreival and embryo transfer. My physician Xia Rong was from Yu Ren Seng clinic at paragon, i decided use the Accupunturist Jin JinHua at Raffles Hospital TCM since my IVF gynae is from there. I find both of them to be very professional and friendly. During my accupunture session, i feel a tingling sensation when the needles are entered, followed by a numbing sensation at the needle area.

Some cost information. For the 1 month supply of chinese herb including consultation fee at Yu Ren Seng, it cost me sgd$280. For the IVF booster package for accupunture, i paid sgd$380 for 5 sessions package. I will need 2 of such packages.
