Natural, Organic Support for Women with High FSH

Many women are told that pregnancy is unlikely or even impossible because of a condition known as high FSH. FSH stands for follicle-stimulating hormone; a hormone that is produced by the pituitary gland and which stimulates the ovaries. This stimulation causes a follicle to develop each month, prompting normal ovulation.

As women age, their egg count is steadily reduced, and it is more difficult to trigger the ovaries to ovulate. The body compensates by increasing the production of FSH in order to force ovulation to occur, which can lead to immature eggs being released. By the time a woman reaches menopause, the FSH levels are uniformly high, and the number and quality of the remaining eggs has significantly decreased. This leads to the woman eventually reaching the point where she is unable to become pregnant.

If high FSH levels occur during childbearing years, pregnancy is also unlikely. High FSH levels can be caused by several conditions, including premature ovarian failure (early menopause) or premature ovarian aging, both of which are associated with infertility.

It is very difficult, if not impossible; to become pregnant with a high FSH level, as the number of quality eggs is extremely low. Since the chances of a woman with high FSH getting pregnant are so slim, some doctors won’t even encourage them to undergo IVF. They will often recommend adoption or using an egg donor instead, having seen too many patients undergoes treatment only for a poor quality, un-ripened egg to fail at the implantation stage.

Some doctors even hold to the belief that once there is one elevated FSH reading, a woman should abandon hope of becoming pregnant using her own eggs.  FSH levels can shift up and down from cycle to cycle, so one reading is not enough to indicate sterility. If one reading is high and the others are in normal range, the problem is probably not severe. Repeatedly high levels are more difficult to overcome, but all hope should not be abandoned.

TCM, or Traditional Chinese Treatment used in conjunction with modern, conventional fertility treatments (including hormone treatment and IVF) has proven to be effective for many women who had given up hope after being told they had high FSH levels. An Egg Quality Improving and High FSH Reducing Herbal Support product (Women's FSH Support) can encourage FSH levels to come down and increase the likelihood of high quality for women of all ages.

The herbs contained in an Egg Quality Improving and High FSH Reducing Herbal Support product are carefully balanced to increase the blood supply around the ovary, warming it so it can produce fully ripened, high quality eggs. In hundreds of tested women who had been taking such a formula for two months, FSH has been found to be reduced on the third day of the menstrual cycle. For women undergoing IVF, using an FSH/Egg Quality Herbal Support for two months in conjunction with the hormone therapy throughout the entire IVF process can significantly increase the chances of a successful conception.
