I have already left one review regarding my amazing experience at TCRA. I was infertile for 4 years (PCOS and allegedly low sperm count) and became pregnant 3 months into my acupuncture services. What I never expected was I am now pregnant

I first started seeing Kirsten and her team after 3 miscarriages. Kirsten had me start charting my temperatures and within our first few sessions she could see from my charts that my progesterone was very low. Sure enough the doctor

I wasn't a "typical" fertility patient. I had a miscarriage at 40, no fertility treatments involved, and just wanted to feel normal again - I had never tried acupuncture but had heard good things. Not only did they help me through that

We found TCRA after going to RMA for a fertility work up. After 3 1/2 years of trying and being told we had a male infertility problem ( although not that severe) the doctors at RMA found that I had PCOS. I was a little skeptical at first bc I had little symptoms of PCOS besides not getting pregnant and I had never heard of it. We were encouraged by the dr.'s to schedule an IUI. My husband was crushed bc we wanted so hard to accomplish conception naturally. I just had an strong urge to try acupuncture first and after reading all of the reviews I knew TCRA was the right choice. I was still worried I wouldn't have the same success as previous clients, which I guess is natural. It seemed like 3 months was the magic number for all of the patients to see results . I discussed my doubts a lot with David and the rest of the staff bc I only felt slightly different. My 38 day cycle never returned to 28, only to 34 days... but this did happen within the first month or so. At 3 months I was so upset when I skipped a period and still had a negative preg. test. Because I had never skipped I began to get really depressed and thought of quitting AP. David assured me that this could just be my period skipping a full month and he aggressively continued my therapy. Another month passed and no period but I had began to get increasingly ill. I went to the dr. who performed a pregnancy test... still negative. We were all baffled and I was inconsolable bc I thought I had made things worse! 5 days later I was so " weepy" and "nauseous" that I took another test AND IT WAS POSITIVE! Additionally at my first OB apt. we discovered I had been pregnant for 2 months! The entire time that TCRA had been helping me cope and get through what we thought was a "relapse" I was pregnant ! Which just goes to show that you might have a different experience then some clients but I still feel like 3 months is the magic number to "realign the universe" or whatever. I definitely recommend up to 6 months if you have a male infertility factor as well but hopefully you will only need 3 months. It's also nice that the AP does help with morning sickness. On a scale of 1 to 10 my MS was a 65. I couldn't even get out of bed. But AP did help for about 48 hours after an appt. My case was really rare though and i recommend asking for zofran rather then missing weeks of work like I did. It's very expensive but you'll be able to "make it through" the day. Also if you pay in advance they do give no-hassle refunds which is nice, or you can save your account until delivery time and return for "easy delivery" AP. All in all, I have referred 3 people to TCRA and it's the first place I'll return to if I have trouble conceiving again. ESPECIALLY since it allowed us to conceive naturally!

I was diagnosed with PCOS several years ago and was told that we would never concieve without the help of technology. After nearly 3.5 years of drugs, tests and treatments and to two heartwrenching losses we decided to try IVF. Just as we were about to embark on our first IVF cycle, I discovered that I had conceived on my own and later delivered my beautiful baby girl. That was nearly 5 years ago. When my daughter was three we decided that we wanted to begin trying for another baby, but nearly a year later, no baby and my weight was out of control, hormones completely wacky and hope was fading. My husband and I had agreed that we would not undergo traditional fertility treatment this time, but didn't know where to turn. In researching PCOS online, I found some articles indicitating that acupuncture was an viable treatment option. I discovered TCRA online and my husband and I hesitantly went for our consultation. David was wonderful. So warm, friendly, informative, and supportive. We felt encouraged and decided to give it a shot. I am thrilled to say that after only two months of treatment, we had a baby on the way. I have continued to have treatment for miscarriage prevention and symptom management and I feel so blessed to have Kirsten and David to turn to with questions and concerns. They are great listeners and truly care about you as a whole person. I look forward to working with them for labor preparation at the end of my pregnancy and will miss them in the interum, though I know I can call anytime and be met with support and kindness. I just can't praise TCRA enough. I highly recommend treatment at this clinic.

When I first came to TCRA I hadn't had a 28 day "normal" cycle my entire life. I had been told I probably had PCOS and would need medication to achieve pregnancy. My intention was to go and try to regulate my cycles and just see how my body responded and if there was a possibility I could become pregnant before turning to further medical intervention.

Not only did I have a 28 day cycle the first month of being a patient at TCRA, I was pregnant the next month! In fact, they were the ones who recommended I take a pregnancy test and they were correct. I then continued their services until I was around 20 weeks to keep both me and the pregnancy healthy and thriving. Now I am 32 weeks pregnant with a baby girl and can hardly wait until I get to go back and prepare for labor and delivery.

I firmly believe I would not have had such an easy and successful time with this without the help of the acupuncturists at TCRA. And, almost as important, I have had such a blessed pregnancy because of the acupuncture. No nausea of any kind, no discomforts, and they were even able to help me keep any anxieties at bay. They say acupuncture can help a pregnant woman feel better, however, if you are already getting acupuncture treatments when you conceive you the results are so much more drastic. I believe that now very firmly.

The staff at TCRA became more than service providers, they became my second family. In fact, I was more excited to tell them I was pregnant than my own family! Sorry mom and dad. I worked mainly with Dixie and Emily (who even acurately predicted the sex of the baby at 5 weeks), and Kirsten was my case manager, but I am sure that anyone they would employ would exceed anyone's expectations. The front desk staff was so informative and caring, walking in the front door alone was such a calming and healing experience.

I even joked with Dixie that I wouldn't recommend walking down the sidewalk outside TCRA if you weren't interested in being pregnant, they really are that powerful of a group. It is a commitment, you have eating guidelines and herbs to take, but I just turned myself over to them, gave it 100%, thinking, if it didn't work what had I really lost? At least I would have had some acupuncture. Instead, I've walked away with a dream I never knew I wanted so badly. Whenever I speak of them to someone a huge well of emotions usually comes up, but once you've met these people you will understand. I can't wait to take my daughter up to meet all her adoptive aunties who were such an important part in her creation. Call them, they will help you. - TR, due 4/8/2010

All you have to do is read through their website to see that this is a place focused on healing and hope.

I found TCRA sort of by accident. I had fertility issues for 2.5 years that resulted in using fertility medicine to get pregnant, which ended in a miscarriage at 10 wks. I moved to SA shortly after and didn't want to focus on fertility but wanted to find an acupuncturist because I feel better when I get it. I had seen other acupuncturists in the past who tried to help with my fertility issues but weren't fertility specialists. I happened across TCRA online and decided I'd try them but not focus on fertility. After meeting with David, however, I had a renewed hope for the possibility of having my problems healed through the use of acupuncture, herbs, and the diet that they recommend. I signed up for 6 mo of acupuncture and herbs, my periods continued to regulate, I felt better, and 3 months later I was pregnant!!!

I continued to see them through my first trimester, which helped greatly with my anxiety over whether the pregnancy would last. It also helped with my nausea and fatigue. With a healthy pregnancy under way at 14 wks, they happily sent me on my way to enjoy my second trimester and return at 34 wks for more acupuncture to help prepare for labor. This was great for me as well. I truly believe it helped me have a fast and smooth labor that came naturally and on time!

David and Kirsten are wonderful people who care about their patients. They have great wisdom in fertility, acupuncture, and health. They are friendly and enjoyable to be around. I always looked forward to meeting with them and found that they were always willing and able to answer any questions I might have. Kirsten also was wonderful to help me in my journey to become a mother as she is a mother herself and has great insight and advice.

I recommend TCRA to anyone who is struggling with infertility or anyone who has female health issues. May you find healing and hope at TCRA as I did.

I was diagnosed with both PCOS and endometriosis several years ago after suffering through painful periods that got worse and worse and that eventually took over the better part of my months. Last year, the pain from my endometriosis led me to having laparoscopic surgery to have excess tissue removed.

After my surgery, my doctor put me on continuous birth control. This caused insane mood swings, and my pain didn't go away; in fact, it grew to the point of my taking three Aleve a day. And still, I was in pain. Many "normal" women only have pelvic pain during one week out of the month, if any time at all. I was the opposite: there was only one week out of the month where I *wasn't* in intense pain.

Back in March, I heard about TCRA and decided to give it a chance. I wasn't sure that they accepted patients like me, since I'm only 20 years old and am not a fertility case. They do. After much thought and several weeks of acupuncture, I stopped taking birth control entirely, and I immediately had a period. Since that time, my menstrual flow has changed from the dark brown characteristic of endometriosis to a bright, healthy red. My periods have already stabilized to around 28-31 days. I've been consistently ovulating around mid-cycle, even with my PCOS. And today I am ecstatic to report that my pain is now down from a 10 to a 2 during my period. I have very little to no pain throughout the rest of the month, and I still have several months to go in my treatment. My condition improves every single month. I never expected results so fantastic, and the great thing is, my body is doing it all without nasty chemicals, artificial hormones, or the adverse side effects from these.

If you have endo or PCOS, I strongly encourage you to call TCRA. David and Kirsten are fantastic people who are devoted to their profession and dedicated to the lives of their patients. I could never thank them enough for all they've given me.

I began reproductive acupuncture at TCRA in San Antonio when we began seeing an RE for infertility. My problem wasn't actually getting pregnant, but staying pregnant.

I truly believe that the acupuncture helped me conceive more quickly, and then helped prevent miscarriage and encourage a thick uterine lining. It also minimized morning sickness, back pain, and stress.

I found the acupuncture sessions very relaxing and yet invigorating. I would melt onto the table in a puddle of warmth and usually drift off to sleep. But I would leave refreshed and renewed and energized. I knew bld. was flowing to my uterus and that a prime environment was being created for my baby.

My dreams have come true, and the people at TCRA helped make that happen!

My husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for two years after a previous miscarriage. We were seeing a fertility specialist and one day my husband found TCRA's website and thought we should go and see what they were all about. I am 39 years old so I felt that we needed something beyond western medicine. When we met Kirsten she immediately set my mind at ease and I felt more positive and hopeful than I had in months. We went through the six month treatment program and had our first IVF cycle and it worked. We are 9 weeks pregnant today. I am still seeing TCRA for the first trimester and I love their continued support and encouragement. I recommend them to all of my friends!

Pros: Relaxes Atmosphere

After about 2 1/2 years of struggling with infertilty & receiving traditional Western treatments, I finally followed my instincts & looked into accupuncture. I researched several places & decided to give TCRA a chance. I chose them because they worked out of a traditional Western infertility clinic & they specialized in infertility. It was very different from any medical treatment I had ever received before. I was a bit doubtful initially but with the support of my case manager, Kirsten, I stuck with it and found success! Open your mind & your heart & let them help you find peace.

Pros: Great listeners & very sensitive to patients needs

The team of acupuncturist that David and Kirsten have put together is incredible. They work with the patient needs in mind as their most important goal. As an IVF provider I have work with them for over 2 years and I am very pleased with their professional service. They dialogue with the patient and when appropriate combine medical and acupuncture therapies. The only winner is the patient who truly gets a holistic approach. If you are looking for acupuncture, stop looking: Texas Center for Reproductive Acupunctuer is your place. I wholeheartedly recommended it.

I had stage 3 endometriosis and my husband and I had been trying to conceive for almost 3 years when we met David and Kirsten. We were at the end of our rope and felt we had exhausted all of our resources which included 7 IUIs, injectible medications,and 3 surgeries. David and Kirsten restored our hope by treating us like family and encouraging us to continue to make our dream of have having a child a reality. We met weekly and became more than just patients...we were friends. After 6 months of acupuncture I had a surgery to clean out any remaining endometriosis only to be told by my ob/gyn and fertility specialist that the endometriosis was completely gone!!! Two months later we went through the IVF process and nine months later we were blessed with TWO healthy twin boys. Our dreams came true and we gained friend in the process. I recommend Texas Center for Reproductive Acupuncture to anyone who is struggling with infertility. Thanks David and Kirsten. We are forever grateful!!

At 52 years old I have started to approach menopause with a significant amount of hot flashes. With a family history of breast cancer I realy wanted to avoid hormone replacement therapies, but did not want to be uncomfortable. I have never really dealt with any holistic or herbal medications, not that I did not believe in them I just was not sure how they worked. After speaking with Kirsten she advised me to try some herbs to see if that would help with the hot flashes. Within 1-2 weeks I had about a 70% reduction in hot flashes and waking up at night. I used the herbs for about 2 months and then reduced the dosage and now I am not taking anything and I feel great!
The care I received was great and I could not be happier with the end result. No more hot flashes.

I should preface my review by saying that I was raised in a western medicine family: my grandfather was a doctor, my grandmother a nurse, my father a doctor, my mother a physical therapist, my aunts are both nurses etc. So, understanding and reaching out to eastern medicine practices, like acupuncture, tested my belief system and that of my family's. But, I was a 30-year-old woman, completely healthy, physically active and diagnosed with "unexplained infertility" after 2 1/2 years of trying naturally followed by 4 rounds of Femara treatment at my OB/GYN's office and finalized by an exam from a renowned fertility specialist in Austin. I had no obvious fertility problems according to the Drs. So just before we embarked on the $25,000 attempt at more aggressive fertility treatment, we decided to try the TCRA. My initial visit with Kirsten left my slightly crestfallen in that she said I needed 3 months of "not trying" to get my body in optimum shape to conceive. I'd already waited so long, I wanted a baby now. But then she explained the reasons, and it all seemed to make sense, I trusted her. We followed the program for 3 months and conceived - accidentally and totally naturally - in the third month. Now, I'm about to deliver in 3 weeks. I've returned to TCRA for help during my first trimester with issues of digestion, morning sickness and allergies and now I'm back again addressing issues of swelling, indigestion and labor preparation. All the practitioners at TCRA are kind, willing to answer even the stupidest of questions, and very explanatory about all the details of the process and even how acupuncture is meant to help. I swear by TCRA.

I have been to another well known acupuncturist in town and I can't even compare them to Kirsten and David's practice. I have had nothing but positive,helpful, and encouraging support from them. I had stage IV endometriosis and after being treated for only a few months I am now at a stage I with hardly any endometriosis left. They have been a blessing to me and soon I know we'll be pregnant!

I had seen several acupuncturists before, some good, but none had the focus on fertility and my monthly cycle like Kirsten and David Karchmer. They were so great to provide teaching material and answer any questions I might have each time I came in. They used acupuncture in harmony with the biological rythems of a woman's monthly cycle in order to promote whole body wellness, balance and a normal, healthy monthly cycle! After 3 mos. of seeing them, I am pregnant! Once pregnant, they also provide pregnancy care through the first trimester and third trimester and post-pardum care as well. I am so impressed that I will continue to use them through all these phases to ensure a healthy baby and that my body stays balanced and in harmony with the use of acupuncture and herbs! I recommed them to anyone! Also, let me say that they are located in the RMA fertility clinic, and although I did not use their services, they are so friendly. It is a very peaceful, positive place that is filled with baby making energy!

My husband and I had been trying to conceive for years, going through surgeries and specialists. It was not until I was recommended to try Kirsten and David that we were able to successfully sustain our pregnancy. They have been such a support system and true gift to us from the beginning. What an amazing team. They offer encouragement, advice and most of all, sensitivity to each individual situation. I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who wants to overcome the battle of infertility and miscarriage. Thank you David and Kirsten for being such a blessing!! Jennifer D.

Pros: The gift of life

I started acupuncture in July2007. Kirsten, Dave and their staff are very compassionate, informative and above all, patient towards their clients needs. They truly are a blessing for my husband and I, after months of seeing specialists with no positive outcome. They have offered us a natural alternative in to our problems. I would highly recommend them to anyone that had suffered the pain of miscarriage and infertility.
