Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

PCOS - Infertility - irregular periods


My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for almost 6 years. After no success we went to see a specialist and I was diagnosed with PCOS. I have had irregular periods for most of my adult life and more recently began to require hormonal drugs to induce my periods. My PCOS has caused me to be infertile and after 2 IUIs, 3 IVF Fresh Cycles, and 2 FET Cycles, I had given up on regular periods, regular ovulation, and getting pregnant. Several of my friends had success with acupuncture treatments, so I researched through the Web and found Dr Yeh’s office. On August 7th, I began to see Dr. Yeh for regular weekly treatments. The treatments for my PCOS are a combination of acupressure and relaxation.

Dr Yeh is adoring of her patients and really concerned for their ailments and treatments. She explained the process and treatment plan thoroughly with me. I am excited to give a testimonial that I am now having regular menstrual cycles without hormonal drugs! I have begun to track my ovulation and hope for pregnancy to come in time with continued treatments.

I am so happy I found Dr. Yeh and would recommend her to everyone for ailments of all kinds, but especially for PCOS and infertility!

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome


All my life I have had irregular menstrual cycles, but it was not until 2006, after my insulin levels were tested, that I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). I was told there were only two ways to help me manage the symptoms and risks associated with PCOS: oral contraceptives or metformin.

After two years of taking medication daily, I got tired of it and fo its undesirable side effects. I decided to do some research to find a drugg-free option. I read that for some women, acupuncture proved to be a safe, effective, drug-free and natural approach, to strengthen and balance all systems of the body. After a health fair, I contacted Dr. Jane Yeh, a licensed acupuncturist, to discuss my condition.

Dr. Jane Yeh told me she had success helping others with irregular periods without the use of herbal remedies. This was encouraging. She also said she specializes in Yin-meridian acupuncture. It was designed to stimulate the body’s own natural production of hormones and regulate the menstrual cycle by gently correcting underlying deficiencies. This is achieved by increase the blood flow of the female reproductive organs. Thus, restoring balance by stimulating the acupuncture points that will counteract that imbalance.

I stopped taking my medication on October 29th and began treatment with her on November 7th. After several weekly treatments, I was able to menstruate on my; own. So far I have had two regular cycles without medication, November 24th and January 2nd! I have never had regular monthly periods without medication; suddenly I have begun having periods with some regularity. I’m very happy with the results so far and intend to keep going with her for further treatments and improvement.

Dr. Jane Yeh cares about her patients and their well-being. One of her goals is to help women to have monthly, ovulatory menstrual cycles. She welcomes all of those who seek acupuncture as a holistic solution to improve the body’s natural healing potential and address the underlying symptoms of PCOS naturally! Accompanied with a healthy diet and regular exercise, acupuncture may help improve your overall health. Who knows, maybe this ancient therapy may prove to be the answer for this still often misunderstood condition.
