Acupuncture to Help Fertility

After a few unsuccessful months of trying to conceive naturally, I went back to my RE and tried three rounds of Clomid and two rounds of Letrozole. Since I wasn’t producing quality eggs using either drug, my husband and I were told that the next step would be IUI or IVF.

Around this same time, a friend of mine began telling me about her success with acupuncture. That same night, I started researching acupuncture for fertility on the internet and came across Jane Gleeson’s profile on Since I had nothing to loose, I called the next day to set up my first appointment.

When I first met Jane, she was very warm and friendly and took her time getting to know my lifestyle and medical history. The concept of trying to treat the body as a “whole” made much more sense to me than trying to treat every ailment as an individual problem.

After a few sessions with Jane, my menstrual cycle returned like clockwork. I also felt more relaxed and at peace with myself and my husband and I decided to take our fertility issues in stride. Just two short months after having attended weekly acupuncture sessions and taking Chinese herbs, I became pregnant with our first child!

In the beginning, I was somewhat skeptical about the concept of Chinese medicine and its effectiveness. Like most Westerners, my theory was that if you’re sick, you take a pill. However, after having experienced firsthand that this theory doesn’t work, I knew that there had to be an alternative method to treating infertility. In my opinion, Chinese medicine is that alternative, and has made all the difference in my life. I was able to conceive naturally using nothing other than acupuncture and Chinese herbs.

I would highly recommend Jane Gleeson and acupuncture to anyone couple who is having trouble conceiving.
