Ovulated after Two Acupuncture Treatments

by Summer

I am 30 years old and was diagnosed with PCOS about 4 months ago. My husband and I had been ttc for about 6 months, but I wasn't getting my period so I knew I wasn't ovulating.

When I was diagnosed with PCOS I felt much like many of you -- dismissed by my doctor and hopeless. My gyno offered drugs, but I firmly believe my PCOS was caused by being on the pill and I didn't want any more chemical interventions.

I'm in good shape and I eat healthy (no fast food, soda or sat. fats) but I was eating a high carb diet.

My husband and I decided we would hold off on the drugs and try a more holistic approach that included reduced sugar, low-carbs and acupuncture.

I lost 9 pounds by reducing the sugar and refined carbs and within two acupuncture treatments over three weeks I ovulated. My basal body temperature isn't as low and is showing a more consistent pattern.

I highly recommend reading the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility, charting your temp., reducing the refined carbs and using acupuncture.

I believe whole-heartedly that I will get pregnant after my next acupuncture appointment, which is timed just before I expect to ovulate. Thank you for this website and sharing the stories of women who have found success!
