In vitro regimen, acupuncture marry well in treatment of infertility

Dr. Mark Xu inserts acupuncture needles into a patient at his clinic. Chinese medicine looks at you as a whole person, and Western medicine looks at the exact individual problem, said Xu, who is a third-generation acupuncturist.It took years of hormone therapy and procedures for the Lakeland mom to conceive her son, now 2 years old.

Hoping for a second child, Henry recently returned to the fertility clinic ready to repeat the in vitro fertilization regimen.

But in addition to the familiar medical routine, this time she was offered a very different treatment -- acupuncture.

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.
