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.

Healthy Baby Girl !

I received acupuncture in the late Spring of 2008 at your centre in an attempt to conceive my first child. I wanted to let all of the wonderful staff know that I successfully conceived in June and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in February 2009. Thank-you to all of the practitioners for helping make my dream come true. In particular I would like to thank the staff that treated me in my journey, Alda, Raeghan, Spence and Ryan. All of you were incredibly professional, compassionate and skilled in treating me and you all made my journey in trying to conceive much less stressful.

Sean Supports IVF process

I met Sean after being referred to Yinstill for my first acupuncture treatment in conjunction with my IVF treatments at PCRM. I had never imagined how good acupuncture would make me feel until I experienced it with Sean. I first met him and I had a very instant feeling of comfort, ease and trust. He is very down to earth, easy to talk to and is very sensitive to my issues as related to infertility. He catered my treatment alongside my IVF treatments and was heartfelt and caring as each visit progressed. After my first treatment with Sean, I was blown away by how I felt.

WE BELIEVE THAT OUR MIRACLE WILL HAPPEN

My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for five years. We tried many treatments including IUI without any progress. Since nothing worked for us so far, I started searching on the internet for other alternative treatments. Luckily, I have found Yinstill clinic and booked my first appointment. The first moment I walked into Dr. Spence’s clinic, I felt calm and relaxed. During my first appointment Dr. Spence listened carefully to us, and he prepared the treatment plan. Since that first meeting my life changed.

I recommend Erin for your first time acupuncture

Erin Flynn is a true professional and an incredibly caring person. I first started seeing her more than seven years ago to assist with stomach cramps, when she was still a student. After my first meeting with her I knew that it was an amazing gift that I had found her. Erin is so knowledgeable and a wonderful resource on issues, treatments and research related to women and all other health issues. Erin helped reduce my stomach pains and stress. She takes her time and really listens to your concerns and questions.

A true asset to the birthing community

I worked with Harris through the whole pregnancy cycle: conception through post-partum.

I first sought treatment with Harris after a couple years of trying to conceive. At my first appointment Harris began to share his wealth of knowledge about conception and I received my first acupuncture treatment. After just a few sessions, I learned I was pregnant. We were thrilled.

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.

When I first went to be treated for infertility I had my reservations

Western medical science cannot solve my specific problem and I thought that Traditional Chinese Medicine was an esoteric last ditch effort in a fight against the unknown. Fortunately enough, I came into contact with Spence Pentland.

To say that the care and services of the staff at Yinstill were paramount to my success would be an understatement

On the eve of the birth of my first child, I find it important to reflect and give gratitude to the people who played an intricate part of my success. I first came to Yinstill on August 12th, 2013 after a laproscopy and miscarriage. I had been told that, at 37, I had little to no chance of successfully carrying a baby to term because of low egg quality and quantity. Needless to say, I was crushed but decided to give IVF and acupuncture a try regardless of the odds.

I feel much more confident in my relationship and have more compassion for myself and my partner. We are extremely lucky and grateful to have found Grace. Highly recommend!

My successful 'pregnancy achievement'

I would like to thank Spence for his stellar knowledge and support in my successful 'pregnancy achievement'. I am now 37 and 25 weeks happily pregnant with my first child. My partner and I had been trying to conceive for 5 months, when I visited the doctor, and started acupuncture. My feeling was that being 36, and never having been pregnant before, I needed a boost to help my fertility. I was starting to feel anxious, but hopeful that it wouldn't take too much help to get pregnant.

Sean was Pivotal on our Journey

I’ve been seeing Sean for about 5 months now to help with fertility. It has been a really great experience working with Sean. He is a great listener and an excellent practitioner and I think that working with him has been pivotal in helping us get pregnant. Whether it is practical advice or tips, or encouraging words combined with the acupuncture, it has been a truly positive experience and I don’t think I would be at this place now without him. I’d highly recommend getting treatment from Sean.

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.

PCOS: hypothalamic amenorrhea

I write you hereby a short description of “our story”. I imagine every couple’s story will be different, but still, the doubts and disappointments must be there for everyone, and I would be most glad to encourage those who have lost faith.

I heard about Spence on Global News...

I heard about Spence on Global News and my husband and I had been trying to conceive for some time. When I first met Spence, I appreciated his honestly and frankness as well as his ability to adapt his approach to meet our specific needs and my personality traits. After our initial meeting with Spence, he drafted a comprehensive plan for treatment which included all aspects of my health and well-being including but not limited to, physical, psychological, emotional, dietary and cognitive. The plan was impressive and the implementation was seemless.
