Are there any risks or side effects that I am exposing myself to in the long run if I embark on a TCM fertility treatment?
Thanks for the D2D. For patients undergoing acupuncture, some may experience slight bruising or bleeding after acupuncture.
If this occurs, apply small pressure to the affected sites and the slight bleeding should cease soon after, bruising and soreness will usually disappear after a few days.
In rare cases, patients may feel dizzy, weak and nausea during their first treatment. This is normally due to anxiety, poor health or hunger. Should there be any discomfort or concerns during an acupuncture session, inform the physician right away so adjustments to the treatment can be made accordingly. It is also advisable to eat an hour before the treatment to help prevent this.
