IVF Doctor Refers his IVF Poor Responders to Acupuncture

 

I have been in practice since 2000.

In fact, they’ve been in your ovaries since you were an embryo. This fact alone is interesting enough, but it gets better. Since your mother’s eggs were in her ovaries when she was an embryo, that means the egg which eventually became you was, at one time, in your grandmother’s uterus.
