Unexplained infertility and several unsucessful IVFs

My husband and I decided to have a child when I was 30. We stopped BCP, but nothing happened! After 7 months of trying we went to see the doctor and she did all possible tests, which came back completely normal. The following 6 years we did not use any birth control and I got pregnant 3 times - all miscarriages. Fertility clinics labeled me with "unexplained infertility". At age 36 we tried a few IUI - no result. We moved on to IVF.

IVF support

I came to Sean for IVF Support during my medicated fertility cycle. Only one ovary was responding to the medication and the other was responding, but not as much as we had hoped. After two sessions to increase blood flow to my uterus my next ultrasound showed that BOTH ovaries were responding well and I had 18 mature follicles for egg harvesting. I could not be happier. I highly recommend him. He is very gentle & kind, and a great listener. I will use him for any future issues including during this pregnancy! i truely believe I owe this pregnancy to Dr.Quigley. Thank you so much!!

Acupuncture and Men's Health

Hi, my name is Gianni, I'm 49 years old and had been struggling with erectile disfunction since the age of 40. I was prescribed Cialis and Viagra at different times and continued taking them on and off. I had tried to speak to different doctors about my situation and about different options for treatment, the answer was always the same........take this pill, it will help!......
I got tired and frustrated and began to look into alternative medicines. This is when I found Yinstill clinic on Main st. in Vancouver.

Throughout our fertility journey, Dr. Fisher helped immensely

I first met with Dr. Fisher after my husband and I decided to embark on the parenthood journey. He was incredibly professional and courteous, administering gentle acupuncture treatments (it was my first time receiving acupuncture), as well as providing a wealth of knowledge on the topics of improving my and my partner's fertility. Once pregnant, he helped us by not only providing a session to teach us acupressure points for labour pain but also providing a final acupuncture session for labour induction so that I did not have to receive synthetic hormones. Throughout our journey, Dr.

Acupuncture for headaches and pregnancy

Sean is such an incredible practitioner! I've seen him multiple times for acupuncture - one of which was while I was suffering form daily headaches during the beginning of my pregnancy. After one treatment with Sean, my headache went away completely! Plus his positive energy and humour is always welcome! Highly recommended as a fertility acupuncturist!!!

Acupuncture helped me finally conceive!

"I absolutely believe acupuncture was what helped me finally conceive. Dr Flynn has excellent bedside manner, a kind and Patient demeanor, and never let me give up on my body's ability to bear a child. I would recommend your clinic 100%. "

Gentle care, from IVF transfer day and throughout my pregnancy

I began seeing Harris in August of 2012 while undergoing IVF. I knew immediately upon meeting him that he would help me in my fertility journey. I am certain that his treatments helped me become and stay pregnant, something I was beginning to think would never happen. Not only does Harris go above and beyond in terms of gentle care during acupuncture treatments, but he also takes as much time as you need to discuss your concerns, answer questions, and give you pertinent information.

Sean was Pivotal on our Journey

I’ve been seeing Sean for about 5 months now to help with fertility. It has been a really great experience working with Sean. He is a great listener and an excellent practitioner and I think that working with him has been pivotal in helping us get pregnant. Whether it is practical advice or tips, or encouraging words combined with the acupuncture, it has been a truly positive experience and I don’t think I would be at this place now without him. I’d highly recommend getting treatment from Sean.

Care during Pregnancy

Sean was wonderful with my care of my needs while I was pregnant and wanting to ensure a healthy and safe pregnancy and of course a safe delivery. Thanks for everything Sean. Baby Liv is also grateful! ;)

I can do it with my own eggs!

I have suffered from infertility for a long time. I had done an IVF that went really bad. I got 14 eggs, 6 mature that 5 of them arrested the next day. I had just one very bad quality embryo to transfer and of course no pregnancy. When I saw my doctor after this failed IVF he strongly recommended donor egg to me. I was devastated.

Good Energy

Sean's lighthearted energy and gentle needling always have me feeling relaxed and receptive for treatment. I find myself smiling during our interactions. He's very thorough and is always curious about how to support my cycle through acupuncture. He holds space in a way that is comfortable, inviting, and light. I always feel great after my sessions with Sean!

Thank you for helping us become pregnant

Darryl and I just wanted to write to you and say “thank you” for helping us become pregnant with our little miracle. From the time I wrote you, Lorne, and spoke to you on the phone I felt that we were in good hands. During our first consult with the IVF clinic, we were told that due to my ovarian cysts and my husband’s male factor issues, our chances weren’t good. I needed to get those cysts removed before we would be allowed into the program. This was step one. Lorne, you helped prepare my body for surgery, and my recovery was remarkable.

A true asset to the birthing community

I worked with Harris through the whole pregnancy cycle: conception through post-partum.

I first sought treatment with Harris after a couple years of trying to conceive. At my first appointment Harris began to share his wealth of knowledge about conception and I received my first acupuncture treatment. After just a few sessions, I learned I was pregnant. We were thrilled.

I wanted to prevent another miscarriage

I came to Erin as I had experience with miscarriage in the past, and wanted to do everything I could to keep this pregnancy. From herbal remedies to traditional acupuncture treatments, Erin helped calm my worries and educate me on numerous practices. The biggest difference I found from Western medicine was that Erin had time to hear my concerns, and created a treatment plan just for me. She listened and worked with me to overcome every symptom I was experiencing as my pregnancy progressed.

Dr Harris Fisher my testimony for such great treatment and care

Shortly after getting married in 2013, I had a miscarriage. I was 35 at the time and my husband and I were devastated — I became obsessed with motherhood. “My whole focus turned to getting pregnant. And every month that it didn’t happen, my obsession got worse.” After losing another baby at around 10 weeks, I was desperate. A trip to a fertility clinic with my husband, revealed that I had high levels of follicle-stimulating hormones and lower levels of Anti-Mullerian Hormones.

Immediate trust in his ability as a healer

"His confident yet gentle healing technique caused me to immediately trust his ability as a healer."

I have been a patient of Spence Pentland for approximately 3 months. I have been receiving treatment for pain and numbness in my arms. I am familiar with the practice of acupuncture and have seen various acupuncturists over the past 10 years.

Junko helped regulate my cycle and conceive!

I went to Yinstill and saw Junko weekly in an effort to regulate my hormones and cycles when my husband and I were trying to conceive. Her warm and professional demeanour made me feel comfortable from the start (important as I had never been to acupuncture before) and it was relieving to have someone to talk to along our fertility journey. Very quickly my cycles became more regular and within a few months I was pregnant! I continued seeing Junko for the first twelve weeks of my pregnancy and returned to see her at the end - even receiving a treatment as I was in early labour.

Too young for donor eggs

My story starts off in October 2008 when my husband and I found out that we had unexplained fertility issues. My Husband was 33 and I was 30 years old. Despite being told by several doctors that we were young and not to worry, it was unsettling. We started a cycle of clomiphene and IUI, which failed after 3 cycles. We were then recommended to try IVF. I never thought we would have to take this route of action, but we were still hopeful and we wanted to become pregnant. March of 2009 we completed one cycle of IVF only to be devastated by the results.

Unexplained pelvic pain and lower back pain relieved and a second child conceived

I was experiencing unexplained pelvic and lower back pain, for which my doctor referred me to a specialist...thinking it might be endometriosis. Dissatisfied that I would have to wait several months for an appointment and might only have surgery as an option, I went searching for alternative treatment. I came across Yinstill in my search and their response was immediate. I started acupuncture treatment with Dr Fisher, along with his suggestion of Chinese medicine and within two weeks my pain was barely noticeable. After months of suffering, I finally felt like myself again.

Turning a Breech Baby with Moxa

Hello,
This is Sean from Yinstill. I just wanted to drop you a line to see how you are doing. Did the baby manage to turn with the moxibustion treatments? I hope you, baby and family are well.
Take care,
Sean

Message of appreciation for allergy relief and increased energy

I wanted to take a moment to send you a message of appreciation for Tuesday's appointment. Thank you so very much for taking the time to listen to my whirlwind of symptoms and treating me as you did. I actually don't even no where to begin except to say that within an hour of treatment, my entire mental and physical state had done a complete 180.

Variety of Treatments

I have been seeing Sean for a variety of issues for the past 6 months and he consistently provides me with great care and attentiveness. I seem to always have something that I can work on in my acupuncture sessions that changes week to week and Sean is always very flexible with my treatment. He is very good at listening to my concerns and determining what is the most pressing issue at hand, while administering treatment that focuses on one main problem while targeting others along the way. I have seen a lot of practitioners in the past and I have been the most comfortable with Sean.

I recommend Erin for your first time acupuncture

Erin Flynn is a true professional and an incredibly caring person. I first started seeing her more than seven years ago to assist with stomach cramps, when she was still a student. After my first meeting with her I knew that it was an amazing gift that I had found her. Erin is so knowledgeable and a wonderful resource on issues, treatments and research related to women and all other health issues. Erin helped reduce my stomach pains and stress. She takes her time and really listens to your concerns and questions.

Gentle and effective

Very professional! Erin was able to fit me into her tight schedule. I have been to a few acupuncturists and Erin was very gentle and very effective. I would highly recommend others to go see her, especially for girl stuff.

By the end of that day, my arm was back to normal...

I strained my arm muscle exercising and through various aggressive movements. It was so uncomfortable and sore, it was distracting me from my work, and I couldn’t lift anything. I received one treatment of acupuncture from Julie Shillabeer, of Acucare Acupuncture. The next morning, my arm felt significantly better, and by the end of that day, my arm was back to normal. Julie’s calm presence, professionalism, and competence helped me feel better quickly and effectively. Thanks Julie!

My acupuncture treatments for infertility, then pregnancy

My husband and I started to try to conceive when I was 35 and after 2 years of trying, we had no idea why I wasn’t getting pregnant. After being tested at the fertility clinic, we were told our infertility issues were “unexplained”. I had a friend who was going to acupuncture treatments for fertility issues too, and I asked her about it. Up until then, I had never even considered acupuncture for anything. I met Erin in June 2009 and upon meeting her, her personal and caring approach made me comfortable with giving it a try. Getting weekly treatments did so many things for me.

Dr. Flynn helped us on our journey to parenthood

I have been a patient of Dr. Erin Flynn’s for over four years. A friend recommended acupuncture as I have PCOS and was having a hard time getting pregnant, and I thought “why not”? A quick Google search led me to a clinic specializing in fertility and my instant love of acupuncture was born.

One of the most knowledgeable practitioners I have come across

I have seen Dr. Fisher for a number of issues and have always been very impressed with the results, as well as the process. Dr. Fisher is very genuine and attentive during the intake process and always makes me feel very comfortable and relaxed. He is always very thorough and takes that little bit of extra time gathering information to get to the root of the issue. I am very familiar with different types of alternative health care and Dr. Fisher is one of the most knowledgeable practitioners I have come across!

A Friendly Practitioner

Sean is an excellent practitioner with a lovely friendly disposition. He always makes you feel lighter with his effortless warmth. I believe he has a true gift for helping to inspire people on a path of holistic wellness in a real and down to earth way. He is very skilled at working with injuries as well, as he helped my partner overcome several long-term sports injuries. I would recommend him to anyone suffering with chronic pain or injury, or those who want to get their health in better balance.

Regular Treatments are Beneficial

I've been receiving acupuncture form Sean on a regular basis for over a year now. He's professional, curious, and accommodating. He asks relevant questions. He clearly communicates how he plans to fix me, but is careful to make sure I agree with the approach. The clinic itself also has a warm feel to it. Highly recommended.

The Roller Coaster

For me, the infertility roller coaster started on Day 1 of every cycle....the anticipation of timing things perfectly, the agonizing two week wait and the knife in my heart when I knew I wasn't pregnant...again and again and again and again. Through all of this, Spence and Raeghan and Lorne brought a healing touch to my treatments. Even while they were prescribing vile Chinese herbs to drink, it felt wonderful to be in their care. They treated me as a whole person and not just my reproductive system.

Pregnancy Support

I cannot recommend Sean Quigley enough for pregnancy related acupuncture. I saw Sean for early pregnancy acupuncture and again for labour induction. I had a healthy, relaxed pregnancy after the early acupuncture and went into labour the day after his induction treatment. Sean is knowledgable and personable. I will go back to him now that we've had our little girl for general relaxation treatment. Again, I can't recommend him highly enough!
