This is a case report of a young couple, 28 years old man and woman who were unable to conceive after trying for a year.
The female patient was diagnosed with endometriosis with chocolate cysts on both ovaries. Her menstrual cycles were regular with severe period pain. She also had bad acne too. The male patient’s sperm were in low mobility. Both patients were offered weekly acupuncture treatments. After 7 weeks of acupuncture, the female patient was pregnant without ovarian cysts. The blood tests after 7 weeks of acupuncture treatment showed normal hormone levels of Prolactin, Estradiol, TSH, LH, FSH and Testosterone, low tumour markers levels (CEA, OMMA, GIMA); increased HCG hormone level showed the pregnancy.
