FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) levels check the growth of ovarian follicles in the ovary before the release of an egg at ovulation time.
In Chinese medicine we understand that the ovaries are affected by the state of health of the rest of the body. Acupuncture, Chinese herbs, vitamins and mineral supplements alongside dietary recommendations are the sources used to restore your reproductive health and balance your system, which will increase your chances of conceiving both naturally and through artificial reproductive technologies.
Acupuncture increases the blood flow to the ovaries to nourish the developing follicles and creates better egg quality and stronger embryos. While Chinese herbs build strong, nutrient-rich blood for the ovaries which will better nourish the developing follicles and create better egg quality and stronger embryos. As important is Acupuncture’s ability to relax the body and reduce stress levels (elevated stress can prohibit conception by blocking blood flow to the reproductive organs and causing an imbalance in hormonal production, resulting in irregular menstrual cycles, lack of ovulation, high FSH levels, poor ovarian production, and diminished egg quality).
