I started to see Dr. Zhuo because I wanted to increase chances of becoming pregnant and wanted to avoid Western fertility treatments if possible because of side effects. I had turned 40 years old and had a miscarriage 6 months before, so I really was on a timeline.

She had me change my diet, document basal body temperature, use fertility testing strips, have intercourse on specific days of the month and I had weekly accupuncture treatments, and was started on Chinese medicine and I took high doses of the recommended vitamins and supplements. Within a few months I was pregnant.

I definitely think that Dr. Zhuo is an expert and if you follow her advice, you will have the best chances of becoming pregnant, and at least it’s worth a try rather than going directly to invasive and medications with side effects that can be dangerous at a Western fertility center.
