  • Elevated FSH
  • Advanced Maternal Age
  • Poor Obvarian Reserve
  • Premature Ovarian Failure/ Donor Egg Candidate

The hormone, Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), is produced by the pituitary gland, and is used by the body to stimulate eggs to grow and develop within the ovaries. A woman’s FSH level is a measure of how receptive the ovaries are to being stimulated by the Pituitary gland.

The more receptive the ovaries are, the less FSH is required to stimulate normal follicle growth. As the ability of the ovaries to stimulate decreases, the more FSH is needed to stimulate the eggs and follicles to grow. As a result, the elevated levels of serum FSH indicate a decreased ability on the part of the eggs and follicles to respond to stimulation.

Once the blood flow to these follicles are increased by the utilization of Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicines, and proper nutrition, the health of the follicles can be improved and the maturation will occur.

Clinical research confirms that Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can successfully increase blood flow to the entire pelvic region, including the reproductive organs.

By improving blood flow to the ovaries by improving nutrition, improving sleep, Acupuncture and proper Chinese Herbal Medicine’s the egg quality can improve, even women with low ovarian reserve.

It is a common occurrence that we see FSH levels decrease as a result of utilization of Functional techniques such as Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Stress Management and Life style adjustments.

If you have been diagnosed with poor ovarian reserve, advanced maternal age, elevated FSH or premature ovarian failure the utilization of Functional techniques may assist where other techniques have come up short.
