I wanted to write a case study about a particular patient who I believe is a great example of how powerful low level laser therapy and acupuncture can be. This patient, who I will call Sarah, was struggling with secondary infertility after naturally conceiving her son a few years prior. She did 5 rounds of clomid, 3 unsuccessful IUI’s, and then decided to go through with IVF. She had two cycles of IVF, both with embryos transferred and both resulting in a chemical pregnancies with no embryos left over.
I was treating a patient since last fall who has an amazing story I wanted to share. She went through many lows during her 5 years trying to conceive before she had her successful pregnancy. I hope her story will bring hope to others who have been trying to conceive without success.
