Acupuncture for Infertility Robin came to me at 31yrs old. She had conceived a child naturally 2 years previously. Robin and husband wanted a second child. After giving birth to her son, Robin was experiencing PMS type symptoms all month long. When her cycles returned, they were irregular with heavy bleeding and cramping. Other symptoms were intense fatigue, heart palpations, poor sleep and a chronic feeling of being overwhelmed. Fertile cervical mucus was present all the time with cramping around ovulation.
