Case #171 - Irregular Menstruation/Pre-menopause and IVF

A 48 year old client began treatment after a western diagnosis of infertility due to pre-menopausal syndrome, which included irregular menstruation. Her cycle was fifty days to three months apart, with heavy bleeding and painful cramping.


After three months of treatment, the patient's cycle had again been established with regularity with normal amount of bleeding and only mild cramping. To prepare for IVF [in vitro fertilization], the patient continued to receive acupuncture and herbs.

Eighteen eggs were produced with the IVF procedure, a very good count considering the patient's age. Unfortunately, during the transfer, the uterine lining was thin at only 0.3 cm, and the embryos failed to implant.

After using acupuncture and herbs for another three months, the transfer of her frozen embryos was successful, as the endometrial lining had thickened from 0.3 cm to 0.9 cm and implantation was able to occur. She now has a healthy six year old child!

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.
