Acupuncture for Infertility, fertility, IVF, IUI support

TESTIMONIAL FOR ACUPUNCTURE IVF SUPPORT – Ann P.

      I have long been a proponent of acupuncture.   My first experience with Chinese Medicine led me to become a firm believer in its amazing benefits.  For years I suffered from severe pain in my wrist due to repetitive strain injury.   After several doctors and surgeries with no relief, I decided to go a different route and came upon acupuncture.   It was the only treatment that gave me relief from the pain.   Moreover, I noticed that other problem areas with digestion and sleep patterns improved.   From that point on, I have used acupuncture to help with any issues that arise. 

This year another issue arose when after trying for 9 months, I could not get pregnant.  I made the decision, that at 41, I should consult with a Reproductive Endocrinologist to assist with my fertility issue.  And, so began the process of trying to get pregnant with medical assistance. I actually got pregnant on my first cycle of IVF, but it ended in a early miscarriage.  People say that going through fertility treatment is stressful and all consuming, but until one is really going through it, no one truly understands just how much stress it puts on a person emotionally and physically and financially.  And, stress is one of the critical components that are supposed to be managed when a woman is trying to get pregnant.  
    After the miscarriage, I began to think about the next cycle and what else I could do to enhance it. Of course, I thought of acupuncture, but I needed a practitioner, as I had relocated.  I came upon the website of Houston Acupuncture and Herb Clinic and was amazed to find an IVF Support Treatment plan.  The clinic is one of the very few to offer a comprehensive treatment plan for infertility and IVF.  Additionally, Jo-Mei Chiang’s credentials ensured a practitioner with the right background and experience.  I was very excited and made an appointment immediately.

    I was very pleased with the thoroughness of my first visit.  Acupuncturist Chiang does a thorough intake regarding health, diet, lifestyle and history and discusses the treatment in depth.   The treatment does not just involve the acupuncture itself, it is a comprehensive program that involves herbs and certain dietary requirements.    All of this is discussed in depth and explained why it pertains to the treatment. I made a commitment to the plan and began my treatment going three times a week and taking 30 pills a day!   Of course, while going for the IVF support, again, I noticed improved sleep and digestion.   But, also, each session is like a deep relaxation and I always get a deep sound nap.  And, while on the herbs, I most definitely noticed improved mood.    All so positive!  During the cycle, I complained to her that I was not simulating as before, when I had 13 eggs.  This round I had 6 and I was beginning to worry.    She stated, I don't care about the quantity, we only need one good one!   It is always enjoyable going to see her, she has such a charming personality and knows how to put a smile on your face, or alleviate your worry.  And, so we continued.   At the transfer, my doctor told me that " I never cease to amaze him".   I had 4 textbook grade 1 embryos.    The last round I had only good/good and good/fair embryos.

    I just smiled!    Because I know without a doubt, that the embryos were textbook directly because of the acupuncture treatments.  And, of course, Jannie was right!   We only needed one good one.   It was a long two week wait.    The preliminary results looked promising, but I was very cautious due to the disappointment of the last round.    I went last week for my weekly checkup, and I had a beta HCG of 5200 at 5 weeks and saw the gestational sac on the ultrasound!  I highly highly recommend to anyone undergoing fertility treatment to make this IVF Support treatment a part of your IVF cycle.  Baby dust to everyone!

Acupuncturist, Jo-Mei Chiang, is specialized in the women’s health, especially the fertility issues.  She goes through a depth consultation before the infertility treatments because she believes to understand the patient’s condition fully enough first is a foundation of the treatments.  She has applied acupuncture and Chinese medicine to discover the underlying problems and promote the fertility function specifically for more than 20 years.  Not just taking care of the physical conditions, Jo-Mei Chiang also carefully evaluates patient’s emotional stress and life style.  Her goal is encouraging a healthy attitude for both mental and physical concerns, as well as a peaceful and effective treatment plan. 

When we treat infertility, there are some aspects we are always look into and try to improve. 
The first important thing is the foundation which is the condition of menstrual periods: Is the menstrual cycle normal? Is there any period? Is it coming every month? Is there any spotting in between? Are there any severe PMS symptoms along the period? The blood flow is good, too light or too heavy? How many days of bleeding?

Second, it is the ovulation.  Are there any cysts in the ovaries? Do you have PCOS? The levels of hormones are normal or not?  Is there any ovulation? Is the ovulation regular every month? The egg quality is good or not?

Third, it is the implantation.  Are there frequent miscarriages?  Are there any uterine fibroids? The lining is good enough or not? Is there any severe cramping during the implantation period? 

Fourth, How is the husband’s conditions? The sperm count is normal or not? The shape and activities of the sperm are great or not?

Fifth, it is the emotional stress, diet and life style.  Stress, bad eating habit, and any addiction such as smoking, drinking also play important roles in the infertility issues.

Chinese medicine looks infertility with different explanations and approaches. In many cases there are unexplainable in western medicine but could be successfully treated by Chinese medicine.  Without utilizing hormonal replacement medicines, Chinese tonic herbs and acupuncture could simply enhance the Qi and blood flows that rebalance the hormone disorders, strengthen the functions of reproductive organs for the egg quality, conceive, implantation and a healthy full term pregnancy.

Deficiency
Blood deficiency
When menstrual periods are shot, light or irregular, in Chinese medicine it is blood deficiency. There is not enough blood to nourish the body and the reproductive organs. Cold hand, feet, overall feeling cold are the common seen symptoms.  When the body is lack of the nourishment from enough blood circulation, the function of ovaries and uterus of course fail automatically.  The consequence is the hormone level becomes irregular, the egg quality is pool, the uterus lining won’t be thick enough to support the implantation, and the whole womb won’t have sufficient nutrients to support the embryo to grow.  Acupuncture and Chinese herbs promote the blood flow first, warm the body and rebalance the hormones, then enrich the reproductive organs.  Because of the replenishment form the sufficient blood flows, the ovaries would develop good quality eggs, the lining of uterus could be thick, rich, and developing a suitable environment for the successful implantation as well as a healthy full term pregnancy.

Qi deficiency
Fatigue, shortness of breath, no appetite, generally feeling no energy are the indication of Qi deficiency in Chinese medicine. Qi is the force to move the blood and body fluids and circulation of all other substance in the body. Lack of Qi, the nutrients could not evenly distribute to the organs and the activities or functions of the organs would be impaired.  Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is specialized in promoting  and regenerating of Qi and blood.  Strengthen the Qi, the whole body becomes more energetic, more activities produced in the reproductive organs.  The Uterus and ovaries are stronger from the replenishment, the performance of the reproductive organs are much more vivid and sufficient. Clinically the deficiency conditions often indicated at the Basal temperature chart as well:  averagely the body temperature is lower than 97.5, no obvious spike on ovulation, and declining quick after the ovulation.

Blood stasis
In Chinese medicine blood stasis means the obstruction of the blood flow such as blood clots, irregular spotting, or severe menstrual cramps, etc. The blood stasis usually is the result of long term of blood deficiency. This kind of obstruction could easily interfere the function of the reproductive organs.  The blood stasis not only reduces the blood flow to the uterus, but also fails the implantation.  In addition, the stasis builds up the stagnation to interrupt the flows of menstrual cycles such as scanty or light bleeding or skip and stop the periods. There are different types of blood stasis: Qi stagnation, cold coagulation, Qi deficient.   Acupuncture and Chinese herbs replenish the organs and create more blood flows to invigorate and remove the stasis, improve and strengthen the blood supplies to the uterus, regulate the menstruation and hormones, normalize the FSH level, upgrade the egg quality, and provide a nutritional environment for the embryo. 

Emotional stress
Stress is an enormous negative influence to the fertility.  How does stress impact the reproductive organs?  Stress creates obstruction to the flow of Qi and blood that impairs the normal connection of the entire body.  when the communication of hormones disturbed, the hormonal imbalance would be the result.  High FSH hormone, abnormal prolactin, low progesterone, low estrogen, no ovulation, and poor lining are the possible consequence.  Stress could cause spasm of ovaries and fallopian tube that could easily block the pathway for egg or embryo.  In additional, stress interrupts sleep pattern and emotional status. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine very effective to release stress and relax the systems that will enhance the communication of the entire body. Western researches believe that acupuncture increase the release of endorphin that helps body to relax.  Besides reducing stress, acupuncture increases the flow of Qi and blood that nourish the tissues, organs and promotes the functions of the whole body.
