Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can reduce levels of circulating Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). This is of particular relevance to women with high levels of FSH who are often turned away from fertility clinics because they

generally respond poorly, if at all, to the drugs used to stimulate their ovaries

for IVF treatments. Many fertility specialists regard this condition as untreatable and advise women to consider using donor eggs. Experience has shown that when these women follow a course of TCM, their FSH levels may fall, improving their chances of success in an assisted conception treatment cycle using their own eggs.


I offer treatments to assist women throughout their IVF treatments. In the

Down Regulation Phase I will treat side effects such as night sweats, hot flushes,

vaginal dryness, insomnia and emotional mood swings. In the following Ovarian Hyperstimulation Phase I help to regulate distention and pain in the lower abdomen, breast tenderness and thickening of the blood, which increases the risk

of embolism and stroke. I then treat my patients before and after embryo transfer

to increase their chances for the successful implantation of fertilized eggs, which result in the birth of a healthy baby.
