Dr. Wu's successes illustrate the profound impact traditional Chinese medicine can have on a wide range of fertility challenges. Under Dr. Wu's care, women with FSH levels of 65 have conceived naturally; women with levels as high as 118 have seen their FSH drop to 9.

Women up to 50 years of age have conceived naturally and carried babies full term. Men have overcome sperm disorders. Fibroids have disappeared. Women who have experienced multiple miscarriages, ovarian or tubal dysfunction, thin uterine lining, premature menopause, irregular cycles, endometriosis, and unexplainable infertility have delivered healthy, happy babies


Entering menopause at 50, Linda had abandoned hope of conceiving naturally.

With her menstrual cycles fluctuating between profuse and no flow and hot flashes a regular occurrence, Linda was entering menopause. A determination to conceive naturally made her chances of pregnancy slim from a Western perspective.

But after coming for her first treatment [with Dr. Wu] in February 1998, Linda conceived naturally and delivered healthy twins in January 1999.


Seven miscarriages and five unsuccessful in vitro fertilization cycles threatened Diane's pregnancy hopes.

Doctors could not explain why Diane, 46, had experienced so many miscarriages and no success with Assisted Reproductive Techniques. She started treatment with Dr. Wu in February, was pregnancy in June 1998, and delivered a baby girl in February 1999.


I'm 38 now, and my mother was 45 - and my dad 47 - when they had me. I was not planned; in fact, at the time, it couldn't have seemed like worse timing. (My brother, then 9, was undergoing brain surgeries due to hydrocephalus.)

Turned out that it was a blessing in disguise; I gave them something else to focus some of their attention on, and I brought great joy to my brother who felt very alone & scared. I also had a 20 year old sister and 16 year old brother at home at the time.


Got pregnant again at 42 and 44 - both naturally - but sadly both miscarried.
Please do not give up hope - I know many women in a similar position who are in their forties and gave got pregnant and had babies either through IVF and naturally - oldest of which is 44.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost our precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted there will be no more babies in our house.
