The 3rd birth of our fertility acupuncture success in 2018 was on 20/09/2018 that baby Aston was born at full maturity, weighing 3.54kg:-)
The pregnancy was confirmed on 18/01/2018:
What Aston’s mum Vanessa said on 15/04/2018:
“I wanted to show how much I appreciated Jenny’s healing and advise for my case so others can hopefully read and experience miracles too. My story is below.
“I got married in March 2017 and my husband and I decided a couple of months later we would like to start a family together. I had been on the Depo Provera contraceptive injection for ten years and had the last one not long before our wedding. Being on this injection you do not experience any regular cycles or bleeding. I knew to give it six months to get it out of my system then was hoping for a cycle to take place but this never happened.
“I went to see a gynaecologist who sent me for an ultrasound and blood test and said that my endometrium lining was very thin at only 1mm, and it would take a long time to get my cycles back. I started to do my own research and found Jenny Li’s clinic, she looked very knowledgeable and experienced so I was very keen to meet her and made an appointment for a few days later.
“I had my first acupuncture session on the 16/08/2017 and continued to see her once a week. She recommended I started a herbal treatment as well because my lining was so thin and my job made me exhausted. I started this treatment on the 07/09/2017. Then on the 17/10/2017 I experienced my very first menstrual cycle in over ten years! This was only after two months of acupuncture and a month of taking the herbal medicine!
“We decided to wait one cycle before trying for a baby and started trying the next cycle while I continued acupuncture and the herbal medicine. On the 16/01/2018 I found out that I was pregnant and on the 18/01/2018 my HCG was 230. I am currently 13 weeks pregnant with a little boy due in September 2018.
“I believe this never would of happened without the help of Jenny and I will forever be grateful!”
Congratulations to your family!
A research article entitled “Effects of Acupuncture versus Sham Acupuncture on Live Births among Women Undergoing In-Vitro Fertilization, A Randomized Clinical Trail” had been published in the May 2018 issue of Journal of American Medical Association, written by Prof. Caroline Smith of Australia. Dr. Jenny attended a presentation of this research by Prof. Smith herself in August 2017 before its publication.
As expected the trial reinforced what other research into the benefits of acupuncture in IVF outcomes has found [1-4] , higher clinical pregnancy rates with the use of acupuncture in conjunction with IVF treatment (25.7% and 21.7% in this study) in contrast to the IVF success rate (20%) on its own . However surprisingly, the final conclusion in this study was “findings do not support the use of acupuncture as a means to improve the rate of live births among women undergoing IVF.”
“These results raised a few questions in my mind and I disagree with this conclusion, therefore I wrote an article to raise awareness of the research methods used, and share my thoughts on ways to improve the validity and reliability of study results.”
