Hi Ladies , I am currently studying to be an Endorsed Enrolled Nurse at TAFE, we have been asked to complete a research assignment. I have chosen to do mine on the use of acupuncture in conjunction with IVF. I have chosen to do this as I am currently doing my 2nd round of IVF and thinking about doing acupuncture myself, but wondering if it will help??
Anyway, I would really appreciate if you can help me by filling out the questionnaire below by copy and pasting it in reply message… Thank you
PS. Once completed I will reply at the end with my conclusion so you can all see as well.
