Kristine, 44, carried her baby full-term

In June 2002, 42-year-old Kristine*, of Dallas, Texas, was diagnosed with “unexplained infertility”. Her reproductive endocrinologist urged her to consider in vitro fertilization (IVF), which she did. It was determined that her ovaries were not producing enough eggs, and therefore two times of IVF process was not successful. She was understandably discouraged.

After six months of acupuncture and herbal therapy to enhance her fertility health, Kristine started her third IVF cycle. Her reproductive endocrinologist was surprised by her improvement in the quality of the eggs, and the IVF procedure resulted in her becoming pregnant.

Kristine, at age 44, carried her baby full-term and was rewarded with a beautiful daughter. “I now realize that traditional Chinese medicines and acupuncture work quite differently than western medicines,” says Kristine. “They are gentle and deep acting rather than flashy and bright. I really feel better overall and healthier than I did before.”

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
