Patient presented with PCOS and fertility concerns. Patient is in her early 30s and had been trying to get pregnant for the past five years.
With this patient, we discovered that she never had a regular menstrual cycle in her adult life. We also became aware that she at times went almost a year without a menstrual cycle. It is important to note that this patient had not been on the pill for the past couple of years at the time of her initial acupuncture intake.
For reproduction, we balanced the Liver, Kidney and Stomach channels. We also addressed the Spleen and Triple Warmer channels to bring balance to the endocrine and hormone function and production.
After approximately five months of acupuncture two times weekly, the patient became pregnant. The patient never experienced regular cycles but her hormones were better balanced and ovulation occurred more frequently. This was understood and examined through charting her menstrual cycle via basal body temperature.
At the time of writing this case study, the patient is enjoying a healthy pregnancy and expects to give birth to a baby boy in the next two weeks.
