IVF and other Assisted Reproductive Technology

Dear Jane,
I wanted to write and tell you our wonderful news. The in vitro took, and we are pregnant. It may even be twins based on the VERY high initial HCG levels. I cannot even tell you how much Scott and I appreciate what you have done for us. We are certain, beyond a doubt, that acupuncture was the difference for us. It has been five of the longest years of our lives (endless drugs and 23 IUI’s followed by failed in vitro and two early miscarriages.) The doctor advised us that our next step to consider would be egg donation. Adoption was our certain and accepted future. This was our last try.

I am telling you, there is no other way to explain our great news. One might think that after such a long road of trying that one is simply due for some good luck. But with the definitive difference this cycle in my egg maturation, fertilization, and very strong HCG and progesterone levels, there is only one thing to attribute it to — acupuncture.

We will forever be grateful to you, Jane, and we now get to fulfill our dream of seeing the world through the eyes of our children.

With warmth and gratitude,
— J.L.
