Accupuncture after pregnancy loss

Hi Dr Debbie

I went for a few accupuncture sessions with my ivf treatment, which resulted in a twin pregnancy. I unfortunately lost this pregnancy 2 weeks ago due to an infection of the membranes which resulted in premature rupture. I was 23 weeks pregnant and the dr did a procedure called a hysterotomy (similar to a cesar) to remove my 2 babies.

What I want to know is can I start accupuncture again immediately to a) assist in the recovery process and to b) assist with new fertility treatment (ivf) that I will start in Feb. The dr's have told me that we need to wait 3 months before attempting another ivf - to give the scar time to heal. I want to do as much as possible to be as healthy as possible when the time comes for the treatment.

Thanks for you input.
