I was experiencing secondary infertility. I tried seeing a fertility doctor but the particular facility I first tried was a factory – I hated the entire experience – it was stressful and disheartening. A friend in Florida had also had a similar experience, her fertility specialist actually told her she probably couldn’t get pregnant. A friend told her to try and find a Chinese Acupuncturist, but not a western one, one from China. Within months she was pregnant. Not willing to try another fertility doctor just yet – I researched online and found Dr. Wang. I felt comfortable with him the first time I met him. He said in China they tell couples that ideally it can take a year to get pregnant following directions for diet and Chinese medicine – but in the US we’re all in a rush so we want to see results faster. He said ideally it could take 3-6 months. I’d turned 40 and I knew the clock was ticking, but I was willing to take a chance and go with Dr. Wang. I’d still rather get pregnant naturally then filling my body with toxins & hormones through IVF. (however if YOU are doing IVF, Dr. Wang will do acupuncture that works to help IVF.) Although my cycle was always regular – I noticed the “quality” of my period improved after the first month. My cycle lasted a day or so longer and the blood was a richer, brighter red. I honestly don’t know if that matters but it was pretty drastic change to what I had experienced before and I knew whatever he was doing was the reason behind it. Whenever I had questions, he was happy to talk me through what he is doing and why and answer any other questions I had. He’s from China though so sometimes it’s hard to understand him – but you just tell him that and he’s happy to figure out a way to explain it until you do. He really is a very nice man. This month I’m happy to report I’m pregnant. Four months in to treatment. I was seeing him twice a week so he knew I was waiting for my period to come or not on Tues…when I walked in his office on Friday I told him. He honestly seemed as happy as I was to hear the news. I was his fourth patient that month to report being pregnant.
