High FSH Levels Don’t Have To Mean the End of the Road

When you are trying to have a baby and your Doctor tells you that your FSH is too high it can sound like a death knell for trying to get pregnant. However, FSH is not the final measure. Real egg quality is only measured by one thing: a baby. There are women with high FSH who do conceive. In her book, Inconceivable, Julia Indichova explained how she had an FSH of 30, yet conceived naturally. Julia’s facts didn’t match the statistics and this is true for many women. It’s worth bearing this in mind when you’re reading statistics.

The President of Radiant Wonder Shares Her Story

“When I was struggling to get pregnant in my forties I never went to an acupuncturist because it didn’t occur to me to try it. I did two years of assisted reproductive technology, many cycles of Clomid and other drugs to no avail.

However, I was also continuing my research and questioning about Chinese herbs and health practices. This took time and effort as there was no internet in those days.

I learned so much, that I was able to create a program of Chinese herbal formulas, special exercises and healing foods (from the grocery store) which eventually brought my body back into balance and allowed me to get pregnant naturally.”

We have been helping women to bring down their levels of FSH for more than 20 years. In all of that time, it has been very rare to find a high FSH level that does not come down.”

 

Empower Yourself & Your Health

If you were getting sick every month with one head cold after another, your doctor could give you antibiotics, but only you could take charge of your immune system and strengthen it in order to fight off those colds more efficiently and even prevent them all together. Similarly, your Doctor can over stimulate your ovaries – but with the best intention in the world, cannot build your fertility. But you can.

We can help you restore your sexual vitality and your fertility. Modern science cannot do this for you. We can teach you, as we have taught thousands of women, how to recover your own sexual vitality. Your Fertility Specialist is valuable, but what you can do for yourself is life changing. Your doctor can identify the high FSH, and override it with Estrogen pills or injections to bring it down. Only you have the chance to recover balance naturally.

Our mission is to share our valuable knowledge with other couples who are trying to get pregnant and are struggling.This is one of our greatest passions at Radiant Wonder! We love empowering women to take charge of their own health. We can assist you in learning how to interpret the signals your body is sending you and to trust yourself and your intuition again.

 

Claudine’s Success Story

Claudine had been trying to get pregnant for years. Her follicle reserve (AMH) was low, her FSH was high, she was a poor responder, and her only option was an egg donor..

“My FSH has dropped way down! 30 to 2.5! After leaving the doctor’s office this morning, I was so excited that instead of calling my husband, Radiant Wonder was the first number I dialed.
Writing this to you I’m hoping it can help someone out there with no hope that is experiencing whatever issue. I have been trying to get pregnant for many many years, and have not been successful. These numbers make me hope.

I was put on clomid with no luck until my doctor said for me to go see an infertility specialist which I did. According to lab results my FSH level was at 30, so he told me sorry there was nothing they could do. I either keep trying on my own or consider an egg donor.

I knew for sure that the egg donor part was not something I would consider for personal reasons. Yes I cried and could not sleep that night.

I was desperate. I had always believed in herbal medicine so I said to myself maybe there could be something else I could try. Feeling very lost late at night, I went on the internet. I looked at everything I could find. I kept going back to your Radiant Wonder site. There was something really unique about that site. Not only what is it all about my issues, but it was not expensive and I enjoyed the testimonies of other women like me. And there was something about the site that made me feel it would be ok to call.

I did not wait, started on a program put together just for me. I did the exercises, added the dietary advice, took the herbs, everything she advised me to do. Three months later my FSH level dropped to 2.5, yes ladies 2.5 not 25 but 2.5!
My body had to get through some strange adjustments, but my Radiant Wonder herbalist was on the phone with me guiding me thru. For example I bled more than expected during the 1st month and no period during the 2nd and a regular period the 3rd.

But I could feel the positive changes happening inside. I literally felt the energy going through my reproductive system. It was amazing. I am not pregnant yet, but I feel healthy, my skin is radiant, I sleep like a baby, have lots of energy. Love you all at Radiant Wonder, may God continue to bless you as you continue to work wonders for his children.”

Note: Claudine did get pregnant about 4 months later and successfully delivered a healthy baby boy.

What Does It Mean When FSH is High?

fsh-normal-rangeWhen FSH is high, it’s is a sign that your ovaries are overstimulated. You have too much Follicle Stimulating Hormone. Western Medicine measures FSH and analyzes it through a biochemical lens. Your FSH hormone level is compared to statistics reflecting the general population of women of different ages. If your FSH level matches those of women in menopause (with or without menopause symptoms) you are told that you are menopausal and are not producing more follicles because there are no eggs left.

The Eastern Medicine Perspective

Eastern Medicine looks at the internal balance of the whole body. This is bioelectric medicine – focused on the energy of the body. We think of your high level of FSH as a stability problem. Your internal energy is not stable or grounded. Eastern Medicine sees your unique circumstances and is focused on renewal.

We theorize that the eggs must have become dormant, because the numbers for antimullerian hormone (AMH) tests and ultrasound tracking usually improve after time on a personalized program. Your Radiant Wonder Fertility Program is a wellness program crafted exactly for you and your situation. Any woman knows not all women are the same – because your hormones fluctuate from month to month. This means that your symptoms also fluctuate.

Your health is not just a single snapshot taken of your FSH level. Your health is a moving picture. And you can start moving that picture in a new, positive direction. In a Western Fertility Clinic, the reliance is on blood tests to provide answers. It also sees patients as groups of people who fit into statistical categories. Eastern Medicine understands that everyone is different and focuses on the uniqueness of each woman, her circumstance, and her symptoms.

NOTE: A high FSH test result is merely a measure of your ability to respond to FSH drugs. High FSH (above 10) is an obstacle for Western Medical Reproductive Technology because it means your body will not tolerate the drug stimulation. However, according to the clinical experience of expert Chinese herbalists, FSH can be above the Clomid Challenge test minimum and not inhibit the ability to get pregnant.

 

Other Symptoms That You May Get With High FSH

It is common for other symptoms to show up with high FSH. These symptoms may include:

  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Lack of motivation
  • Poor digestion
  • Gas and bloating

As your FSH is coming down these symptoms will diminish.

What is High FSH Telling You?

High FSH is one of the signals your body sends you when it needs nourishment. It needs replenishment. It needs to calm down. It needs to recover. The good news is there is nothing deeply wrong with you. You can help yourself.

Did You Know That Fertility Drugs Can Increase FSH Levels?

It’s a great irony that your FSH levels may be artificially increased by treatments such as Clomid. The intense stimulation of the drugs burns down the deep moisture, naturally present in your body, as seen in your sexual fluids and cervical mucus. The intensity of the experience creates internal physical stress. Your energy doesn’t flow freely anymore, it is stuck. This can give you symptoms such as:

  • hot flashes
  • irritability
  • mood swings
  • headaches
  • insomnia

It is possible to rebalance high FSH caused by pharmaceutical drugs in as little as 2-3 months. It is rarely a difficult thing to accomplish. This artificial imbalance can be rebalanced for women of all ages. How? You need to give your body some proper support.

With this regime, we have often seen the ovarian function spring back with higher levels of estrogen and ultimately, the true measure of healthy eggs – a healthy baby.

Suzanne’s Success Story

“When I had blood work and an ultrasound taken in December my FSH was 21.6 and my follicle count was 4. My RE said I would not conceive on my own. Since I did not want to use donor egg and IVF I started looking on line and found you.

I recently had my tests taken again and my FSH is now 18 and my follicle count went up to 6. It is a slow process but with patience, prayers and the loving support of all my family, friends and the Radiant Wonder herbs I know that I will reach my goal of becoming a mother.”

Some Common Questions We Are Asked About High FSH

 

Will I Get Pregnant Right Away?

There’s no telling if you’ll get pregnant right away, but you will know deep within yourself that you are preparing your body for that baby. The Chinese talk about a 100 day cultivation period. That is about three months. It also takes three months for the blood supply to completely replenish itself. Within three months you should see visible hormonal changes. I say this because I want you to understand that this is not a quick fix, but, despite what I say, some of our customers actually become pregnant the first month.

Can You Guarantee That I Will Become Pregnant?

Although there’s no way we can guarantee that you will become pregnant, we do understand that you do not want to give up this quest without knowing you have done absolutely everything that you possibly can to succeed. We are here to help you match strong fertility to your strong (and sweet) desire to have a child.

Will I Feel Better Right Away?

Yes – you will start to experience more energy almost immediately and every day. You will sleep well again. There will be a sense of calm and inner strength that tells you that you are working with your body to prepare yourself for not only receiving and carrying a child, but for raising the child. You can have a healthy baby in a healthy body. And that is the real goal.

Can I Use Western Medicine or Eastern Herbalism or a Combination of Both

The most important thing is for you to take charge of your own health. It is your body and your sexual vitality.
