    I was going to say Sharkeys too! Although I'm in Sydney, I was on their program by correspondance. I'm not one of their success stories yet, but my DH & I have definitely improved our chances by following their advice. His sperm count went up by a factor of 10 and my once short luteal phase is now perfect. Currently trying our luck with ICSI because even with a 10-fold increase, DH still has a low count.

    I don't think they do acupuncture, but they could probably refer you to someone that does.

    Hi Mel19681

    The namesake Ruth Sharkey, no longer owns or works in the business, and has sold the business to someone else, but they still specialise in fertility treatments.

    I did see one of the naturopaths at Sharkeys early this year, before we started on the IVF. I didn't get the result I wanted, but I did actually feel alot better - more energy etc. I wouldn't hesitate to go back to them, and would recommend them to others.

    Good luck!

    Hello.

    I can recommend a brilliant acupuncturist. Brad Fennell from Studio Qi at Burleigh Heads. He is amazing and specialises in fertility.

    Good luck.

    Hi Mel19681,

    I noticed you were in Northern rivers so thought I'd let you know about a fantastic accupuncturist in Tweed Heads South that I have used during my IVF cycles. Her name is Sarah Garnett and she specialises in IVF and pregnancy. Her number is 0401357371.

    Good luck!

    Stacey Roberts now consults at Sharkeys and they appear to have a high success rate. I had to give it away as it was too expensive and we are now donor eggs. If I lived local I would still be seeing her.

    Hi

    I have been going to Samantha Harris, she is an acupunturist. She is fantastic.

    My in my cycles (5) before seeing her I was getting about 7-11 eggs. But after seeing sam my first cycle with her 16 eggs and my last cycle 20 eggs. She is worth it. You can get her phone no from the reception area at City Fertility Centre at Robina. At the moment she is in Tugan on a Monday, Robina on a Wednesday and Main Beach on a Friday and Saturday. Hope that helps.

    lilangel - good luck

    Thanks so much Ladies.
    I will give them a call and tell them my story!
    Im not sure if Sharkey does acupuncture?
    I have been seeing a lady in Northern Rivers but she tends to rush and its best to have someone who specialises in IVF with acupuncture.
    thanks again
