ACI doctors of acupuncture and TCM provide painless acupuncture for fertility treatment. There are no side-effects. The doctors also prescribe Chinese herbal medicine to supplement the acupuncture for the best quality of care. If you take herbs while receiving other medical treatments, be sure to tell your doctor. Some herbs can interfere with the function of fertility drugs and procedures, and vice versa. As needed, the doctors co-manage your case with all your other medical providers.
"I had two miscarriages and was told by two fertility clinics that I had to have surgery to correct a septate uterus, would need an egg donor and had very little chance of becoming pregnant much less having a live birth. I saw Dr. Zang for two weeks, had a period then never had one again. I am in the 14th week of pregnancy (longer than I've ever carried before)and things are looking good. I will update my testimonial as things progress. I really like Dr. Zang and highly recommend him! It's relaxing and non-invasive, not to mention affordable!" -By M.G.
"My husband and I have had been trying to have a baby for 15 months before trying acupuncture... I went to see Dr. Zang, He talked us through the whole process... I did acupuncture treatments for 6 month. The 7th month Dr. Zang also prescribed some natural herbs and I am now pregnant. Thank you Dr. Zang!" -By P.N.
