Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
I came to Lynn in November 2008 after trying to conceive unsuccessfully for almost 10 months. Having been diagnosed in August 2008 with PCOS, I was coming up on a year of having no menstrual cycles at the time I first met with Lynn. I was frustrated but at the same time wasn't quite ready to jump into the traditional fertility drugs and procedures. I was determined to treat and cure my symptoms naturally.
From the start, Lynn was an absolute delight to work with. She really took the time to understand my diagnosis and monitor me from week to week. With two months of Lynn's treatments underway, I finally had my first menstrual cycle after almost a year of absent periods. The best news of all came in February 2009 when I found out that I was 5 weeks pregnant!!!
Lynn - I sincerely appreciate all that you've done for me. I've really enjoyed working with you.....you are truly an angel!
I am extremely excited and grateful to share my testimony of how wonderful my experience has been with Lynn Almloff Acupuncture. I was diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) in my early twenties. I suffer from all the symptoms: insulin resistance, hirtuisim, oily skin, obesity, depression and infertility. I went through a very painful laparoscopic procedure that included: fallopian tube blowing, ovarian drilling, a D&C and uterus biopsies in hopes that I would conceive. Unfortunately I went through all this to have the end results of no conception. I began to research other alternatives, and I found Lynn’s acupuncture site on the internet. I made that first phone call and Lynn answered all of my questions and was very encouraging to me. My first appointment was nerve racking, but once I met Lynn I felt right at home. I began weekly treatments and then later Lynn introduced progesterone cream in to my regimen. In a little over 3 months of beginning treatment, I became pregnant! We are now expecting our first child in May. I truly believe with all of my heart that God places people in our lives for a reason, there could have never been a better reason than this. Thank you Lynn for all of your knowledge and kindness, you are a true angel!
Back in 2003, my husband and I found that we were not able to have children without fertility assistance. After 5 failed IUI's and 1 failed IVF, I began doing research for alternative methods for boosting fertility. To my surprise I found numerous medical journals that stated acupuncture increases fertility.
I looked up fertility and acupuncture on the internet and Lynn Almloff’s practice was cited. I called her and set up an appointment. I was very impressed at her up to date knowledge of IVF/fertility procedures. She was very thorough about what acupuncture was and what I could expect to feel. I was a little nervous as I had never been to an acupuncturist before. She did tell me that it was very important to follow her fertility protocol. With my second IVF, I did just what she suggested and became pregnant. Unfortunately, my baby was not healthy and I had a miscarriage.
After the miscarriage, my reproductive endocrinologist diagnosed me with atypical polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and placed me on Metformin.
A few months before I started IVF #3, I began acupuncture again and followed Lynn’s treatment plan as she suggested. To my surprise, I became pregnant without any IVF treatments! I believe that the acupuncture is what helped me get pregnant on my own.
I am currently 8 months pregnant and we look forward to Lynn meeting our son she helped us conceive!
