A long journey to success

My husband and I have just gone through an IVF cycle with an egg donor and we're now looking forward to an upcoming pregnancy test. Regardless of the outcome of that test, we are still a success story and we appreciate what Spence has done for us ...

After Several Unsuccessful IVF Attempts...

Dear Spence & Alda, After a long difficult journey including several unsuccessful IVF attempts, I was beginning to believe that I could never become pregnant. When a friend recommended acupuncture we had already decided that this IVF cycle would be the last but that I would do anything to increase my chance of success.

I did not anticipate the profound effect of acupuncture on my sense of well-being and on my emotional, psychological and physical state. The teatment enabled me to find my balance again.

Hi there! I have a story to share...

My husband (age 38) and I (age 36) tried to get pregnant for one year - which isn't that long, really, but when you want something badly, any amount of time can be frustrating. I know firsthand how much it sucks to get your period and then wait another month and so on...

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.

My back feels better and my libido is higher !

I have been a patient of Dr.Pentland's for the past 2 months. My weekly treatments are specific to lower back problems and infertility. These visits have been beneficial in helping me feel less stressed and more relaxed. I have noticed a dramatic decrease in my lower back pain with each visit. I have also noticed an increase in my libido since the start of my treatments. I would recommend acupuncture to anyone who wants to find balance in their bodies whether it's back pain or infertility. Thank you Dr.Pentland

Not pregnant but you made such a difference in my life...

I want to thank you so much for all your care and attention to my treatment, I know it has made a big difference, and in particular in the last few months, you are truly gifted in knowing what people need, and helping them see that. I am very excited to have had such a great response during this last transfer, as well, so is my Doctor, and he is confident we are on the right track and would like to continue. We have a number of things to consider and will take some time to mull everything over and get ready to take on our next challenges.

Best IVF response after acupuncture

Thank you, Erin!! I can never thank you enough for believing in me when all my fertility doctors told me that donor eggs or adoption was my best chance of being a mom! I had my best response to IVF after working with you, now I’m pregnant, and I know that acupuncture and diet made the difference! God Bless!!

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.

migraines during pregnancy

I've been coming to Yinstill for a few months now (during my first trimester) for migraines. When you walk in, there is such a calm and relaxing atmosphere that even my husband has commented on it! Everyone from the staff (Sarah and Claire) to Junko who has been treating me have been so kind and helpful. I can't recommend Junko enough as she always listens to any concerns that I may have and even sends me recipes that will help after my pregnancy is over. I never would have thought acupuncture would help but amazingly I truly believe it has.

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!!

Would enthusiastically recommend Dr. Pentland...

"My main goal when I approached Dr. Pentland for acupuncture treatment was to help me with anxiety and stress relief following up to and including my IVF procedure. Both of these goals were met. Dr. Pentland has a very sincere, caring manner that is both professional and respectful. I was very much at ease with Dr. Pentland and was particularly impressed with how familiar he was with the IVF procedure. I have no idea whether acupuncture helped medically the IVF procedure work, but I'm pregnant now and that's all I really care about. I would enthusiastically recommend Dr.

I Now Have 2 Beautiful Sons...

In 2005 after a failed IVF treatment and emotionally drained from struggling with infertility, I decided to try acupuncture along with my fertility treatments. I did not know anything about acupuncture but simply wanted to make sure I was covering all the bases. The thing I feared most was failure and I needed to know I had done all I could possibly do. What I did not expect was the profound impact acupuncture would have on me.

Our little embryo(s) will have a healthy endometrial lining to burrow into

"Ever since I have been coming to Yinstill I have noticed that my periods have really changed, they used to be scant and mostly brownish in colour and would last usually just a day or two. After a just few months of acupuncture treatments they are much heavier and have a very healthy colour of bright red, and they last upwards of 4-5 days.
