High FSH Acupuncture treatment

Treat High FSH with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine

By Dr. Richard Zeng

Want to try IVF but have high FSH?
Diagnosed as Pre-matured menopause?

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine may help reduce your FSH and achieve pregnancy.

Many of our clients are told that they have high Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), or they are diagnosed are pre-matured menopause.

High FSH is linked to poor egg quality and conception rates, both stand-alone or in IUI/IVF cycle.They are told not able to conceive naturally or if they choose to do IVF, their IVF specialist won't be able to help them unless their FSH level are below 12, because their ovaries will have no or less response to the IVF drugs.

The reason that you have high FSH is because your ovaries are not responding adequately to its hormonal message from the high levels (pituitary gland). Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can improve blood flow to your ovaries, and provide more nutrients to your ovaries, consequently improve your ovaries' response to pituitary gland, and ovulation happens.

In our clinic we have treated many women who have high FSH with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. Generally after a few weeks' treatment, FSH level can be lowered below 12, or under 10. Many associated symptoms can also be improved a lot, such as abdominal discomfort (pain in the ovaries, cramping), hot flushes, fatigue, emotional instability. Many patients achieved pregnancy after the treatment either naturally or through IVF.

Should you have more queries, please feel free to contact us or
