Based upon age, AMH and FSH levels give practitioners a good indication of ovarian reserve and egg quality. Low AMH or high FSH may indicate poor quality embryos or eggs, low pregnancy rates, and high miscarriage rates.
It is unfortunately very common to see Diminished Ovarian Reserve in our current society. Our lifestyle, stress levels, inadequate nutrition, high exposure to environmental toxins, and delayed motherhood are all at play.
Chinese Medicine is arguably the most effective and beneficial treatment for these diagnoses. It can minimize atresia (cellular death), optimize follicular function, preserve follicles, normalize hormonal levels, increase pelvic blood flow, and improve oocyte maturation. With three months of weekly acupuncture treatment, supplements, and herbal medicine, we have seen AMH values increase and FSH values decrease.
