I first found TCM Healthcare's website, after receiving devastatingly high FSH test results.In Sept 2020, l caught Covid-19 and after a very stressful house move, l was concerned that l hadn't ovulated, which was later confirmed at a private ultrasound appointment. So l waited patiently for my period to come, but it didn't, which for someone with a regular 26 day cycle, was really unusual and upsetting. What followed was hot flushes during the day and the most debilitating night sweats for 3 months. I was at a complete loss, particularly as my consultant had told me that he was afraid l was going through perimenopause and he basically wrote me off. It was at this point that l spoke with Prof. Shun Au. I was understandably tearful but Shun took the time to reassure me and l came away feeling that all was not lost even with an FSH of 47. What struck me with Shun, was his vast knowledge and how seamlessly he was able to explain the limitations of seeing fertility solely through a scientific len. I didn't feel rushed during our first conversation, l felt supported and l came away feeling hopeful. I also remember explaining to him that, prior to my period stopping, l had had 5 previous losses over two and half years, the last being in June 2020, and he told me that the treatment was holistic so would also deal with my egg quality issues. I started my treatment in December 2020 but just before l began, l retook my hormonal tests and my FSH had gone up to 57 and my estrogen was very low at 40, which explained the hot flashes and night sweats.The herbs l received from TCM quickly became part of my daily routine and the tea was surprisingly palatable. I also had monthly Zoom calls with Shun and Dr Yang and after our consultation, they would change up my herbs depending on my symptoms and tongue analysis.I got my first proper period on 15th January; prior to that l had a small bleed that didn't really resemble a period but l still felt hopeful that my body was recalibrating. I finished my course of treatment on the 3rd February and on the 11th March l ovulated. Two weeks later l got a positive pregnancy test at 43 years old. I was in complete disbelief but also petrified that this pregnancy would also result in a loss like the other 5, 1st trimester losses. But Shun's words rang true - 'the treatment is holistic'.I feel so incredibly pleased to write that l am now in my second trimester. My Harmony test results were fantastic so l feel like l can finally breath slightly easier and enjoy this pregnancy.I am so grateful that l came across TCM. I reached out to Shun as a last resort. However, after 2 failed IVFs, 5 losses, thousands of pounds and major heartache, l would tell anyone at the beginning of their fertility journey to go directly to TCM Healthcare because l truly wish I'd found them earlier.Thank you to Prof. Shun Au and Dr Yang for helping to make this dream come true.

Pippa 43 and Mark 60’s
We started trying for a baby 3 years ago being aware that time was not on our side we visited a fertility clinic to have 3 rounds of IUI.
Then moved to a Harley Street IVF clinic that advised IUI was only effective for women up to 35 years and that our best chance was via IVF although with minimal possibility of success due to my age, reducing eggs and likely poor quality. We were only given a 2% chance.
After 2 rounds of unsuccessful stressful IVF I was told to carry on with another session or the best chance was actually to have a donor egg which they could provide straight away.
I did not feel the harsh aggressive treatment of IVF was right for me so even though I was 41 I felt I still wanted to try naturally and left the clinic.
After improving our diet, cutting out caffeine, the minimal alcohol I was consuming etc I conceived naturally but miscarriaged at 7 weeks.
After researching supplements, making supper smoothies and acupuncture. I went to a high street herb clinic but as they seemed unprofessional and made me very confused I did not continue with them.
With more research I came across Professor Shun Au’s articles and reviews.
We went to see Professor Au and Doctor Li and was very encouraged by their suggested course of herbs that we both took for the following 3 months. The experience of which we enjoyed with his positive attitude was just what I needed to hear. It was incredible to see the results of my bloods over the period including my thyroid condition which plays a role in a good pregnancy (the IVF clinic never even discussed this with me). Also my husband’s sperm quality and mobility improved to being excellent.
Amazingly a few months later I became pregnant and will soon be taking the herbs from Professor Au at 7 months for a continued good pregnancy….My 12 week scan showed all was well and due twins in December.
Not only did the herbs improve the quality and quantity of my eggs but also my thyroid condition, overall energy and vitality.
Now, so happy and forever grateful, an incredibly happy mother of healthy twin girls.

Layla was 44 turning 45 when she started our programme
My only regret is that I didn't approach Prof Au sooner. I had found his details about 1 year before actually starting the program with Prof Au. Instead I chose to work with a naturopath whom put me on loads of supplements and discouraged me to try TCM. A big mistake looking back. The good news is: after working with Prof Au only for 3 months I fell pregnant and am now nearly 20 weeks. This was a miracle given that I had struggled with secondary infertility for 2 years due to older age and all the depressing diagnoses that come with it. He told me to quit most of my supplements, which at first I found difficult to do but I decided to put my full trust in him. It was the best decision as it proved! I cant recommend Prof Au enough, he was the only one whom believed in me and was always positive and available for calls or just to listen. Thank you so much for everything, you are truly amazing!

I want to start by thanking Prof Shun Au and Dr Yang, they have come in our lives like angels. I was struggling to to conceive for over 4 years. After undergoing one laparoscopy, 2 hysteroscopy, 2 failed IUIs and 3 failed IVF treatment I was really disheartened. I am 37 and my AMH levels were quite low and over all hormones were all out of range. one day while surfing on the net about how can I improve my AMHI came across TCM healthcare webpage. I read the testimonials, I contacted Prof Shun Au. After listening to my case he gave me a list of blood work and asked me to get back to him with the results. After my first appointment he sent me a set of herbs and said there is no reason why I can’t conceive naturally. I received my herbs within a week, my cycle started on the 13th of Oct., I started having them on 15th day of my cycle . The same cycle I missed my periods by 5 days . I thought its something to do with my herbal tea why my periods were delayed . I took my appointment with Prof Shun Au again on the 18th of Nov. to see what could be the reason for the delay. On the 17th of Nov. morning I took a pregnancy test and to my biggest surprise and joy I had a positive result. I could just not believe my eyes and was filled with happiness and gratitude for both Prof Shun Au and Dr Yang, as this was nothing less than a miracle to me . I am 5 months pregnant now and everything is going well, can't wait for our bundle of joy. When I first came to this site I was very skeptical about potential of TCM for fertility, but I tried anyway and I am so happy I did, so if you are going through a similar phase I would highly recommend to give it a shot.

After more than 18 months of my wife and I trying to conceive, I took an sperm/andrology test in May of 2018. The results put my IgG at 71; it should have been less than 10 for normally fertility. Suffice to say the specialist told us we would not conceive naturally. To be exact his letter read: "The anti-sperm antibodies do remain elevated. This remains an area of controversy as they are not routinely recommended to be tested for by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) partly because there is no clear indication of how they can be treated to improve outcomes using any other medical therapy. Given the current setting and situation that you are in and taking into account your partner's age and factors, I think the best approach would be with going forward with IUI or IVF."By December 2018, we had gone through one unsuccessful round of IVF and were left with little hope about our future prospects. Beyond adoption and surrogacy we seemed to have few options.We heard about TCM though a family friend and after one consultation, in which I listened with much skepticism, I started treatment. The first few rounds were completed using the "herbs" - a bag of unfamiliar looking leaves, tree bark, berries and other things - I cooked (boiled really) myself at home. Frequent travel for work and hotel living made it impossible for me to prepare the herbs consistently, so I switched to the ready made powder TCM provide as an alternative. You just add boiling water to this but it's supposedly less powerful - around 70% - 80% strength of the unrefined herbs if I remember correctly. Over the course of 18 months I continued treatment and took a number of sperm/andrology tests. The first after treatment saw my IgG dropped from 71 to 67, the second from 57 - 50, a third from 50 - 27, and the final test in Oct 2020 had a result of IgG of 2.On the 2nd October 2020 I took my final test and received the scores three days later - the IgG was 2. I had a condition the conventional doctors told me to simply accept. I can't thank TCM enough! From being a complete skeptic I'm totally convinced that TCM's treatment works. I also appreciate the frank, but caring manner in which they explain things. When you are going through issues of fertility as a couple the value of this cannot be overstated! Thank You!

I am writing this review in a state of complete shock, having just learned that I am pregnant after being completely written off by various doctors and top gynaecologists. I had a “fertility MOT” 4 months ago and at 34 years of age I was told that my FSH was extremely elevated, my AMH undetectable and that I was heading for early menopause. My periods were sporadic, short cycles and painfully light. I’ll never forget how bereft I felt when I read my ovarian assessment and saw “consider donor eggs”. Looking to the internet is a mistake, you’ll find no comfort there in a situation like mine. One Sunday morning in a terrible hour of need and desperation, I searched the internet and came across TCM Healthcare. I called not expecting anyone to answer on a Sunday. Professor Au answered. It was the first time I spoke to someone who deeply understood the hormones / their interpretation, and how I could move forward. I felt reassured and hopeful for the first time on my utterly miserable journey. I went for a HyCoSy to ensure my tubes were clear, and that natural conception was an option. During my test I was told by the Dr that I’d “need a miracle” and why was I there, when I should be proceeding with donor eggs without delay. I started the herbs in December and invested completely in the programme. My first period was heavier (first time in 10 years), my second cycle was 29 days (as opposed to 25), and my third I knew that I ovulated day 14. I was feeling like a different person inside and out. I felt well, and healthy. Today I discovered I’m 5 weeks pregnant, and I can’t believe it. What I’ve learned, is that doctors of Western medicine can have a poor grasp on the dark art that is the female reproductive system, and prematurely refer women like me to IVF clinics. I wholeheartedly believe that the Doctors at TCM Healthcare are leaders in this field, and the best authority on fertility. Professor Au and Dr Yang are polite, professional, and exceptionally knowledgeable. I didn’t need a miracle, I needed TCM healthcare. Thank you to both of you, my family and I will be eternally grateful.

Neil has low sperm count and premature ejaculation when he first came to us in mid 2017
Hi, Professor Au,
How are you ? Well our Daughter is now 16 months old and once again thanks for your help!!
We are now keen to have another child so was wondering if I wanted to come back for treatment to boost our chances again would that be possible and are you open during these crazy times?
Are the charges still the same?

I simply can not recommend Professor Au and Professor Li enough. I found TCM via a google search after we had been struggling to conceive our second baby for nearly 2 years. Following tests at a local fertility clinic in Essex, I was told that my FSH, LH and Oestradiol were all over the place and at 39, I was nearing early menopause. I was told the only option was egg donation as my egg quality was too poor. I was told that there was nothing I could take or do to improve my egg quality, just wait for a donor. After one visit to see the professors, I was given hope and I can not tell you how good it felt to feel some positivity - I hadn't had good news with regards to my fertility in so long. I first visited the clinic in October. Prof Au suggested that a treatment of herbs could help me energise my body, healing me from the inside. Shun said that there was lots that could be done to improve my egg quality and my body's overall health (lacking in energy, heavy periods etc) I left my first face to face meeting excited to start on the herbs and hoping that they would help me. I was advised to stop trying to conceive for the next few months whilst my body responded to the herbs. I visited the clinic every 4 weeks for more herbs and put my faith in the professors. After 3 months, I had another blood test and my results were the best they'd been (in about 9 months of blood tests at my local clinic) but I wasn't there yet. But, I felt more energised, my periods had changed (which was a good sign of my body healing) and I was just feeling more positive. I was given another month's supply of herbs and was told that as my bloods had improved, I could start trying to conceive again but accepted that it may take a little more time. Well, the following month, my period was late. I waited, thinking that it may have been the herbs (as I was late after my first month on the herbs) but...it turns out, I was pregnant! This was February! I am now 34 weeks and still can not believe that I am pregnant. I would love anyone else in my position to know that if you are told there isn't hope, please believe there is. I was willing to try anything and chinese medicine was not something that I knew much about. TCM healthcare gave me hope and help where western medicine could not. Without the involvement of the professors, I do not believe I would be where I am today. Their positivity, kindness and knowledge helped me to fall pregnant without the need for an egg donor. I am beyond grateful and would recommend them without hesitation. Thank you doesn't quite seem to cover how I feel - I will forever be grateful for TCM for giving me my longed for second pregnancy. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Kate.

Lizzy is based in the United States. She had multiple miscarriages before she came to us. We saw her using video calls. Having seen by Dr Yang for 3 months, she wrote to us.
I’m great, sorry just saw this. I’m currently 20 weeks pregnant. I am due early next year. I appreciate your herbal powder and once I’m done with this pregnancy, I’m going to try again. 100% a believer in your herbal powder works miracles.
Again thank you.

I have been seeing Dr shun for around 4 years now, and I couldn't recommend their services more.
As always polite and courteous they listened and understood me sympathetically.
I first attended their clinic around 4 years ago after trying to conceive (unsucsessfully) for over 4 years. (I had my first child at 28 then never fell pregnant again until I saw Dr shun)
Under their supervision I had two healthy babies; the second of which I fell pregnant naturally which I believe was because of the herbs I had previously been given.
I truly feel different when taking the herbs, I even noticed my skin looked younger and people commented on how fresh I looked. I even began craving foods I used to like in my twenties! ( I'm now 37)
its really sad and confusing to see anything but good reviews because I found their services excellent. I found their prices reasonable (I would have had to pay thousands for IVF), their offices clean and their manner friendly, to the point and straight forward. I would always recommend that you try TCM healthcare before you pursue IVF; you may, like me never need it.

We started to look for a baby in November 2019. I was used to use the pills for 13 years, after surgery due to endometriosis. I had a first natural period in November and after that nothing.
I did hormones tests and my AMH was 0.01 and FSH 88. My doctors says that the only option was a egg donation and I was diagnosed with premature menopause at the age of 35.I was feeling very sad, frustrated, and even if I never believe it in the deep of my heart.
I was looking for information in google and finally decided by myself to start acupuncture and osteopathy gynaecology and finally found TCM HealthCare and decided to get in touch with them.
I found many reviews of many people with the same problem of all over the world, and for the first time, when I got in touch with Prof Au, I did not feel alone in this hard journey.Prof Au and Dr Yang gave me hope and support from the first call we had (I live in Spain, so we get in contact by WhatsApp).
Anyway, I started the herbs on February and on the 08.03 I had first slow bleeding! On the 04.04 I have my first proper period and then another one on the 20.04. Probably I still need to regulate the period, but for me it is already a miracle! Doctors in Spain were saying I would never recover my period! Today I did an ovulation test and it was positive!! Well, I still need to finish my first 3 months-treatment, but my hopes now are different. I will make the hormone tests again at the end of the month.
I hope that I could write a new review saying that nothing is lost in life, you always have to believe in everything and I am pregnant! Keep you posted!

She saw Dr. Yang 3 times and wrote a long Google review:
Married for 5 years at the age of 30. In March 2018, doctors confirmed that due to low AMH (0.3), natural conceiving is impossible and if conceived I would have miscarriage. Capsule Ovaries was recommended for 3 months. Consuming these capsule on daily basis had a side-effect like weight gain, acne on my face and on my neck. I stopped consuming those and went to my doctor. She then asked me to try IVF. Meanwhile during google research on low AMH, I came across TCM Healthcare which uses Chinese therapy to heal low AMH and other problems.
In IVF session, we consulted the doctor and she recommended IVF with donor egg. We insisted that we would first go for IVF with my own egg. If not successful, we can then try for IVF with donor egg. She agreed. In Nov 2018, IVF process was started. Due to low number of egg, IVF doctor insisted on IUI instead of an IVF. We agreed and I had a IUI failure. Things settled and my husband got a project in UK to work and I joined him in Mar 2019. We thought of consulting TCM Healthcare for help. We had our tests and when results were available we met Prof Au and Dr Yang. They said that I should not take any medication as my hormone level were fine and low AMH was never an issue for natural conception. I went for 3 consultations and I took 3 month medication till September 2020 which improved my internal health overall. After this, we were asked to stop the herbs and simply try for 6 months and return if still unable to conceive. In Feb 2020 I came to know that I am pregnant.
I would highly recommend TCM health care for all those who have been trying to conceive but are unable to do so.
Thanks TCM HealthCare

Anne came to us with hormonal imbalance. She saw us 3 times.
I am very grateful to TCM Healthcare for giving me a much deeper understanding of the importance of hormonal imbalance and how it affected my fertility and general wellbeing throughout all my adult life. The holistic analysis approach that TCM takes gave me the confidence to try for a baby after being written off my Western fertility specialists. I went on to conceive naturally in my 40s and had a very good pregnancy supported by the herbal treatment at the early stage.

Daniel came to us with sperm test results as follows: Count/per ml 1.8, Total count 6.2, Motility 25, Progressive motility, 10 and Morphology, 0.
He saw us 3 times and his re test results are: Count/per ml 4.8, Total count 22.6, Motility, 44, Progressive motility 39.30 and Morphology 5. Effectively all parameters are now normal except count.
He called to say: I would like to have more herbs as I am not going to be around at Christmas.
November 10, 2019
I attended TCM Healthcare after being written off by doctors as never having a chance of a natural pregnancy or even IVF due to my hormone levels. From day one the service has been excellent in both treatment and their caring attitude. I was given all the information and the process explained to me all the way through. I have gone from having no hope of another pregnancy to being pregnant in under a year.
I cannot recommend them highly enough
August 14, 2019
I came across TCM via Google search in May 2018 after feeling disappointed from two failed IVFs. My consultant said I wouldn’t be able to conceive given my age and my FSH/AMH levels. After a phone conversation with Professor Au, I convinced my husband to try Chinese herbal medicine. Today my husband and I are extremely happy to say that we are expecting a baby girl this autumn and we would also like to take this opportunity to say how grateful we are with Professor Au and Dr Li for giving us the hope to finally have our most wanted baby.
Thank you so much again

I write this with heart full of joy, I can’t even believe it.
The news I got from my gynaecologist was so devastating: I was told that my FSH was high and AMH low that I couldn’t conceive on my own. They suggested an egg donor. I was so heartbroken but believed in God above. I went online to search for how to improve my case (the doctor said there is no treatment for that). I ran into this website and I was amazed with the testimonies which gave me hope. I contacted Shun and started my treatment in May. I saw improvement in my whole body. The consultations were done online via WhatsApp and email as I live in Canada and the team explained to me that the treatment aims at improving your overall reproductive health and hormones enabling natural pregnancy. We wanted to go for IVF treatment and I wanted to improve my AMH and FSH because they will turn you down if results are not within normal range. I explained that but they kept telling me that the natural pregnancy is very possible with their treatment. I wasn’t expecting this.
I just finished my last set of herbs and haven’t seen my period yet. I saw my period on the 19th of June and were expecting it on the 15th of July. Lo and behold we did pregnancy test on the 22nd of July and it came back positive. “I AM PREGNANT!“ I just conceived naturally.
I’m so very greatful, Shun.
My sincere thank you to you and your entire team and I’m definitely referring my friends and anyone that needs help that I know. I will keep you updated as I go along with my pregnancy journey. Grateful heart.

I first came to TCM in 2015 after being told by NHS doctors that I wouldn't be able to conceive naturally given my age and FSH/AMH levels. I remember feeling a welcome sense of positivity from my first telephone call to TCM, being told that I had come to the right place. After hearing 'no' up until this point, I felt a glimmer of hope for the first time in a long while. From there on in I had the pleasure of attending consultations with Professor Shun Au and Professor Li who worked to help me improve the strength and balance of my internal organs, notably strengthening my heart and kidneys. In late 2016 they suggested that their work was done and I should try to conceive naturally. A few months later I fell pregnant and gave birth to my daughter in February 2018 at the age of 46.
I would recommend TCM in a heartbeat. Especially to anyone who is trying to conceive and has been told that their age and/or FSH/AMH levels mean they can't. Their approach is fascinating, their manner kind, positive and respectful and to this day I am duly grateful.
January 28, 2019
The treatment I received from TCM Healthcare has been absolutely amazing. Professors Au and Li are compassionate, professional experts in their field. After being prescribed a herbal blend, over the course of a year we were able to bring back my periods and lower my FSH from 80 to 44 and it probably went down further although I didn't have anymore blood tests. In August of this year I fell pregnant naturally. I had previously been told by several doctors that as I had quite severe Premature Ovarian Failure this would be impossible. I urge any woman with a similar diagnosis to explore this excellent treatment from TCM Healthcare. It has changed our lives wonderfully.
January 28, 2019
I have been trying to have a baby for many years. My partner and I we did blood work and other tests, and we found out that my husband’s sperm motility and shape was abnormal. I was so sad and I didn't know what to do. Our GP advised us the only option is IVF.
I was searching on Google if there is any other option we have. I saw TCM and how successful they are in general fertility patients. After that, I make appointment with Professors Shun and Lee. They treated us very well and they gave him 3 months of herbs. Before he finished the herbs, I found out that I was pregnant. Sadly, I did miscarriage.
After he did his sperm test again it had a massive improvement. Then, after, we went again for 3 months’ more treatment. Both professors advised that although he can get me pregnant, his result is OK, but he needed more treatment till he was 100% normal.
I didn't know the time we visited them I was pregnant again. My husband hadn’t even started the 2nd round of herbs. I called the professor and I announced the good news. Hope I will have a health pregnancy this time. I wanted to say thank you very much for Professors shun and Lee. All the money and time we spent it was worth it. I really recommend anyone who has difficulty conceiving to visit TCM.
