After being told by a BIG name reproductive clinic in Seattle that "you will never be able to get pregnant, you don't even qualify for IVF. You could maybe look for a donor egg...", I found the book "The Infertility Cure". That was 5 months ago. This reproductive clinic diagnosed me with high FSH, low quality/quantity eggs, and low follicle count. I was 39 and they made it very clear that my hope for having a child on my own was impossible. I read "The Infertility Cure" in two days. It addressed my issues among many many others that women, who so desperately want to have a child, face. I researched and found that Acupuncture NW practiced "The Infertility Cure"'s methods so I booked an appt.
After an initial consultation, I was immediately put at ease. They explained to me in depth about a woman's body and hormonal changes. And how they can be put back in balance with diet, herbs, vitamins, and acupuncture. That was in November. I'm less than two months from my 40th birthday and I found out I am pregnant. Less than 4 months of treatment with Acupuncture NW and I am pregnant. And the cost of the herbs and acupuncture treatment was a fraction of the cost of the one visit and evaluation with the reproductive clinic. Nothing fancy, no invasive or expensive treatments. Just some easy to take herbs and relaxing acupuncture sessions. And very positive people who never failed to give me hope.
