infertility Success Stories

Healthy baby girl!!

Hello to everyone at Acubalance,

Story with a Happy Ending

Hi, Lorne:

Long time no chat. It was about two years ago that we found you and the Acubalance team. I wanted to check in with you and give you an update. We have VERY GOOD news!! Thanks to a great friend -- who became our surrogate -- our baby is due in May!! My friend is 20 weeks along and we're absolutely over-the-moon thrilled!! Obviously, there is still a good chunk of time to go, but so far so good (knock on wood).

Dear Acubalance,

I am writing to send a heartfelt thank you for your website. It has indirectly helped us get pregnant after 4+ years of fertility struggles. I believe your section on "What can I do to optimize my fertilit

Pregnant at 45 with high FSH and short luteal phase

When I was 44, I decided to give conception one last try. I had no children. I had tried before and survived pregnancy losses. Because of my age and history, medical science gave me little hope of success. But for me the word “no” is more of a challenge to action than a point of defeat.

I'm now at about 11 weeks and am -- somewhat anxiously! -- awaiting the results of my CVS test done this week. So far, everything seems to have been going well and...

Try Try Worked !

Three years ago, I underwent IVF/ICSI to conceive our first baby. I had heard that trying acupuncture and herbs while undergoing fertility treatment could be really beneficial. Happily, our first try was successful and we had a beautiful baby girl! When we moved to Vancouver, we decided to try for Baby Number 2. This time, I went to Acubalance for acupuncture and herbs -- and the IVF/ICSI treatment went well... my lining was good, hormone...

Male Factor

We were initially referred to Acubalance through the UBC Centre for Reproductive Health. Our diagnosis was male factor infertility. Our doctor from UBC suggested that we pair the IVF/ICSI cycle with acupuncture. At this time, we also started my husband on two supplements (Fertilaid for Men and FrequenSea). Over a six month period, we noticed a very significant increase in the sperm morphology, motility, and count. We had two unsuccessful IVF...
