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,

         menstrual cycle problems, such as amenorrhea or menopause.

         Early or delayed puberty.  In girls, starts younger than age 9, in boys younger than 10 considered early puberty.

         Pituitary gland 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 reproductive organs.

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. 

Be patient, be positive and be happy!
