You got it, Jules!
– can you confirm when it is contraindicated to needle the abdomen and low back during pregnancy Yes! First trimester do not needle lower abd and lumbosacral, after 1st trimester do not needle entire abdomen and lumbosacral.
– what is the definition of infertility we should be looking for for an exam question. The workbook lists for TCM its 2 years and for western its 1 year. Just wondering if they ask something like “how long should a woman try before being considered as having infertility” or something like that. Go for one year please! It is one year in the first half of the book, but two years in the second half (different sources). I will correct the TCM Illness one now as that is the most commonly accepted one. Thank you for that – ONE YEAR!!
