New York, NY
I am 40 and half years old and pregnant by natural with acupuncture support after failed three IVF. I am writing to share my story with others who may be facing difficulty to conceive and with advanced age. Our journey began in April of 2008. I was 38 years old. We had been diagnosed primarily with male factor infertility (bilateral varicocele). Our fertility specialist told us that IVF would bypass this issue. Further they also found that I had elevated NK cells and assumed that I had Autoimmunity factor to cause our infertility. In about more than one year, I did 3 round of IVF with so many Lupron, Ganirelix, Follistim 750IU, did IVIG therapy to suppress natural killer cell activity, we did PGD and had a genetically healthy embryo transferred. Unfortunately, 3 IVF cycles failed !!! We discontinued doing any IVF because we couldn??t afford any more.
In May of 2008, we met Dr. Yang and Dr. Liu and worked with their acupuncture and herbal supplements. After failed third IVF cycle in Oct, 2008, I think that acupuncture and Dr. Yang is our last resort. Dr. Yang had felt very strongly that we could conceive by our own. We continue to do acupuncture and herbs two times per week. In June of 2009, we found out that I was pregnant by natural! We were both in shock and completely thrilled. I am now 40 years old and 5 months along with no complications. By March, 2010, my baby boy came to the world We are very grateful Dr. Yang and Dr. Liu??s commitment and persistence in working with us to achieve this goal.!
I have shared my story to help others in a similar situation. The path of infertility can be confusion, emotionally draining and frustration. It is hard to know what to do and what ??experts? to trust. It is also costly. After I saw so many so called infertility specialists in NYC and Long Island, I highly recommend Dr. Yang and Dr. Liu to anyone struggling with fertility issue. She has years of training and expertise. She is well versed in the ancient tradition of acupuncture; she is also well versed in all of the latest medical techniques and medication protocols used to treat infertility. Dr. Yang is familiar with the most recent medical literature in the field of infertility as well as familiar with the best providers of infertility services in the metropolitan area.
We will always be thankful to her knowledge, commitment and compassion.
