I was diagnosed with low ovarian reserve. On ultrasound my ovaries had about three eggs on each side, half of what I should have at the age of 34, and my FSH is 17.7, and my AMH is 0.335. I did two IUI’s without medications with frozen sperm, then two WITH medication, and no success. My doctor said I should prepare for IVF. I started reading “Making Babies” by Sami S. David and it talked about not only all the little issues that could be preventing pregnancy (like too acidic cervical mucous, pelvic infections you don’t even know you have, inflammatory issues, etc), but how beneficial acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be when trying to conceive. I was desperate. I didn’t want to do IVF yet, and I was so blessed to have found a donor who was helping me try (I did home inseminations). It had been over a year of doing insemination after insemination with NOTHING to show for it. Never a positive test. I figured why not just try this acupuncture thing? I have nothing to lose and it’ll be good even if I end up needing to do IVF. So I found Acupuncture Fertility Specialists and saw Swasti and I immediately knew she was legit. I had learned a lot with all the research I had done about Chinese medicine and she touched on all the major issues, she did a thorough intake, and gave me a good treatment plan to get me started. I had blood stagnation, yin deficiency, and a cold uterus. She gave me herbs, she did acupuncture, and she gave me exercises and a diet to follow at home. I CONCEIVED THAT SAME MONTH! All I needed was a little help from Swasti and I was able to get pregnant! I’m currently 8 weeks now, and I’m so happy. All my doctors were telling me to do IVF, that it would be the only way and I would have a slim chance still. I am so glad I went to see Swasti. She has changed my life and I’m so grateful. I really thought I would never get pregnant, and thanks to Acupuncture Fertility Specialists I am! I’m still in shock! 😍 I highly highly recommend them. And Sylvia who runs the front office is amazing too. She’s so sweet and makes you feel comfortable immediately. They really care and they’re really getting women pregnant!
