Our success story today is Cherie, who was diagnosed with a uterine septum. Her husband also had issues with borderline low sperm count, motility, and morphology. They started trying in 2007 but saw no success. Their doctor recommended IUIs after finding Cherie’s uterine septum.
Cherie stumbled upon a website and decided to delve into Traditional Chinese Medicine. She had battled emotional depression, but found new energetic physical and emotional health with acupuncture and Chinese herbs. She and her husband improved their diets and health; even though they didn’t get pregnant during this time, they saw great benefits in other areas of life. They eventually moved on to IVF, endured the ups and downs of blood tests and beta numbers, and welcomed their son in June 2012!

Whom We’re Following:
We are following the journey of Jenni, whose husband has abnormal morphology. Even though his sperm counts and motility are good, the sperm are misshapen, which affects fertilization. Jenni began trying to get pregnant in 2010 and saw various doctors in her home country of Singapore. She and her husband followed principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine to improve sperm quality and ensure healthy ovulation while going through IUI cycles.
Jenni and her husband endured some rocky times in their marriage because of their frustration with each other over their infertility. She decided to finally take charge and saw a highly recommended doctor who advised them to move to IVF. She is looking to do a frozen embryo transfer very soon, so we look forward to checking back in with Jenni in a few weeks.
