‘After already falling pregnant naturally in 2011 by 2016 I had slightly low AMH and had been trying to become pregnant for over 2 years with no success. After my consultation with Prof. Au and Prof. Li I came away with some herbs and to my delight fell pregnant exactly 1 month after! unfortunately this resulted in a miscarriage at around 6/7 weeks but i was so happy to least fall pregnant i went back for another consultation.
After this Prof. Au and Prof. Li told me i needed to build my strength for 3/4 months and then try for a baby again, I did as instructed and to take the herbs given to me. I was surprised that I started to feel great on the herbs, like my younger self before i had my first child in 2011! I even began to like the foods I used to like before my first pregnancy and people told me i was looking younger and fresher! After 3/4 months I then went back and Prof. Au and Prof. Li told they told me I was now ready to try for a baby again so was given the herbs and again exactly as planned i fell pregnant! I was given some herbs to ‘keep’ the baby and I am now please to report i am now 23 weeks pregnant! they pregnancy has been fine and all scans have gone well and baby is doing well.
I will certainly be returning to Prof. Au and Prof. Li for when we are ready to have our 3rd baby. Thank you to Prof. Au and Prof. Li!’

Emma from outside London 2017

I have the herbs from the last pregnancy and have started taking them straight away as suggested.’
Sylvia from London 2017
Sylvia had low AMH
‘My sperm test results revealed a virtually non existent count (less than 100) and the doctor doing the test results analysis said ‘I had as much chance of conceiving with my partner as winning the lottery.’ Going to my GP I was told that there was nothing conventional medicine could do about it. They could only offer help on the woman’s side. There was nothing they could do for a man.
Looking desperately for an alternative I found TCM Healthcare on the internet and spoke to Prof. Au who said he thought they could help.
I was prescribed herbs to be boiled with water which would make a hot drink to be taken twice per day.
I noticed I started to have more energy and generally started feeling better all round.
After about 4 months I decided to have a second test and was genuinely shocked to see my count had increased to 20 Million. A subsequent test two months later revealed it had improved to 70 Million
After seven months my partner announced she was pregnant. Today my partner had her 11 week scan and all is well
Thanks to all those at TCM Healthcare.’

He listened carefully to our situation and my ongoing symptoms, and identified a number of deficiencies that are involved in my inability to get pregnant. Following six months of treatment, I am happy to report that many of my troublesome symptoms have either disappeared or improved dramatically. We are planning a second IVF treatment shortly and feeling optimistic. Many thanks to Professors Li and Au – they are kind, supportive and professional.’
