Acupuncture and Chinese herbs help
reduce Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and improve the function
of reproductive systems.
Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (
FSH hormone)is produced by gonadotrophs in the anterior pituitary
gland. It is essential for reproduction. In female, FSH hormone
stimulates the menstrual cycles and egg production by ovaries. In
ovary FSH stimulates the maturation of follicles, so the highest
level of FSH usually is before ovulation. In male, FSH hormone
enhances the production of sperm. Follicle Stimulating hormone
usually is a measurement to determine either the function of ovaries
or testicles is normal or not. Therefore, FSH hormone test is
commonly applied for infertility. In the other words, FSH hormone
test helps to evaluate
the egg supply
or sperm count,
problems, such as amenorrhea or menopause.

disorders, such as tumors.
When infertility conditions
happened, the analysis of ovarian reserve would be applied. The
ovarian reserve refers to the amount of eggs available for
fertilization. A higher ovarian reserve indicates more available
eggs. The ovarian reserve test usually relies on the measurement of
FSH hormone and estradiol level. Age, heavy smoking, and hormonal
medications are the most common reasons affect the FSH level.
A normal FSH level is under
10, between10 to 25 is considered borderline, above 25 is abnormal.
Estradiol level usually tested
along with FSH hormone. Estradiol is one of the estrogens that
produced by the ovaries. If estradiol level is above 75 indicates a
poor ovarian reserve.
A higher FSH level test result
might indicate: Premature ovarian failure (POF), polycystic ovarian
syndrome (PCOS), and menopause.
A lower FSH level test result
might indicate: Pituitary disorder, stress, and low body weight.
Infertility treatments may
suggested when FSH level elevated, because the delays may result no
conceiving and donor egg consideration.
But FSH tests are not the “
END” to pregnancy. Even with the elevated FSH level, it does not
mean you won’t have a chance to get pregnant. In lots of cases
acupuncture and Chinese herbs really can reverse the condition.
How does Acupuncture help reduce high
FSH and also improve the egg quality?
Besides taking the western
medicines, acupuncture and combination of Chinese herbs lots of time
can help reduce high FSH level and improve the egg quality.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs
increase tremendous blood flow in ovaries, nourish the reproductive
organs, balance the hormones, plus reduce stress dramatically. There
are lots of patients benefit from acupuncture and Chinese treatments
both with or without the ART ( Assisted Reproductive technology).
A healthy fertilized egg is
the production of balanced hormone and body constitution.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs improve the constitution and eliminate
the internal stress naturally, especially relax the reproductive
systems. The Whole process gently ensures the supply of follicles
and improves the maturation of the egg.
We all know when body is in a
constant peacefully nourished condition, the performance certainly
enhanced abundantly. The high FSH and poor egg refer poor health
and hormon situation, usually acupuncture, Chinese herbs and proper
diet (see the article of Diet, habits and infertility) can instantly
increase the blood flow throughout the whole body, automatically
more nutrients and nourishment are delivered to the whole body. The
improved circulation helps body rebalance and improve the function
of reproductive organs, such as regular monthly cycles, capability
of conception, healthy embryo and a healthy full term pregnancy.
Acupuncture reduces stress hormone and benefits the fertility
Stress negatively interferes
the hormonal communication between the brain, pituitary and the
ovary. Stress definitely imbalances the hormone function and
impairs the egg maturation and ovulation. (see the article –stress
and infertility) In many cases, stress brings in early menopause
with high FSH level.
Stress affects the central
nervous system, creates the spasm of ovaries and fallopian tubes,
interrupts the balance of hormone and disrupts the function of
Many researches showed that
acupuncture stimulates the communication of nervous systems and can
alter the neurochemical production. That results in the resistance
to stress, and helps reduce the tension of all negative emotions.
It requires at least 3 to 6
months to reinstate the imbalance from acupuncture and Chinese
herbs. It is essential to have adequate treatment time to adjust
the body. Generally speaking the follicular development needs at
least 3 to 4 cycles to be mature, it is necessary to allow enough
time to build up the system optimally.
