    Hi all, my dh and I have ttc for 6 cycles and no success by far. We are thinking of going to consult dr sum , just wondering if we will need to see a western doc before that to ensure eggs/sperms etc are ok? Pls advise? And also if any one 's got success with dr sum?

    I would also recommend this book Impatient Woman's Guide to Getting Pregnant: Amazon.co.uk: Jean M. Twenge: 9781451620702: Books

    She gives incredibly sensible advice and it really worked for us.

    Good luck.

    If you are older than 30 then I suggest you go to your OBGYN and ask for testing. It will tell you for sure if there is a problem or not. I wish I had done this earlier. 6 months is not a long time but if you are worried, it will be more cost effective to go to a western doctor.

    I have tried acupuncture with 'Doctor' Sum and in my experience he is more interested in money than people. I found acupuncture very relaxing but that's about it. If you have a male factor issue (such as low sperm count) then acupuncture won't help in the slightest.

    Good luck!

    Hi

    I am 18 weeks pregnant and had been trying for around a year, I had 2 miscarriages.

    I had an appointment with Troy Sing but I had a couple of issues with him. He did my consultation then left a colleague to do the needles, but I was charged for his full fee. Also his schedule was very inflexible for me as I work full time.

    So I saw another doctor in the same practice (Healthwise is the practice) who previously treated me for insomnia some years back, Dr Hui. He's is excellent and can highly recommend him. I was able to have my appointments on a Saturday morning so no rushing to and from work, I was very relaxed and I think that helped a great deal.

    It may have been the accupunture that helped me get pregnant or it may not have been but I stopped counting the days of my cycle and let Dr Hui do his thing...and made sure i finished my herbs :-)

    I've been trying to get pregnant and had several attempts with IVF. I heard that acupuncture is a great complimentary tool, so I went to Balance Health in Central and saw Dr Grace Yu. She is really good at what she does - I felt so good after her sessions and finally it worked!

    Hi, I have done 2 iui and 1 fresh Ivf and 2 frozen transfers.....all of which have ended up negative.
    I have done acupuncture with my ivf and while it's relaxing the needles make me a little tense....I am not sure if it works but I go to Dr Helen he t London medical clinic....she is really lovely and sympathetic (to the point where I think she may cry when my result is negative).

    I have a question for others.....are there any support groups in hk people are aware of? In the UK I knew there were some, but since getting to Hong Kong I feel like I need to speak with people who understand my struggle.....

    Hi Everyone.
    I went to see CK Sum back in October last year and after 3 times of going, i got pregnant (after trying for 6 months or so) I didn't continue my treatments with him and unfortunately i miscarried this year in Feb 2015. I am now pregnant again (4 half weeks) and went back to DR CK sum to help with this pregnancy and hoping that this pregnancy will be a positive one! As stated in some posts on this thread, he doesn't talk to you too much but checks your pulse, looks at your tongue, asks many questions and then advises on the answers you give. I was in a super stressful job last year and this year i am just studying and doing voluntary work so my lifestyle has changed a lot. I do believe accupuncture does work and i do highly recommend Dr CK Sum from TCM Health and Joy.

    Hi Monste,
    How long have you been doing accupuncture for? i would recommend CK Sum (whom i have talked about in my post) as he does specialise in fertility.

    Good luck!
