I first contacted TCM Healthcare back in 2020 when myself and my husband had been trying for a baby for over a year with no success.After initial testing under my GP and a fertility clinic, I was told I had a very low AMH for my age and a high FSH. I spoke to Prof Au who was very generous with his time and called me back on a Sunday to talk me through their process and to reassure me that I could be treated.I ended up going down the IVF route initially, however after 6 stimulation cycles and 3 transfer cycles with losses along the way, after extensive testing, I was advised that there weren’t really further options for me.By this point, I was 38 and had been going through IVF for a couple of years. I had remained in touch with Prof Au and Stephanie who continued to be generous with their time and kind and professional despite me not having started treatment with them.I decided to try the TCM route and met Prof Li and Stephanie in November 2022. Within one cycle of treatment with the herbs my period was late and I found out I was pregnant for the first time naturally. I gave birth to a baby boy in July 2023.I am a medical doctor and did not really understand the TCM approach. However, I had a great experience with TCM healthcare and decided to trust their process. They are a team who genuinely care and I will be forever grateful to them even if I had not had a positive outcome. Prof Au calling me to reassure me and advise me in those initial days when I had first got my diagnosis and felt there was no hope for me is something I will not forget.

Amanda has terrible symptoms with fibroids for decades
I hope that in future, remarkable options like Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are widely available. I'm so thankful for TCM Healthcare, London!
I endured gyno issues for decades. After many surgeries and attempts to treat fibroids, I still had horrendous symptoms causing life-threatening blood clots. I also tried 'Uterine Artery Embolisation', a procedure that shrunk the fibroids without hysterectomy. It was successful, but it could not help with residual low energy and poor circulation.
Then I met a compassionate person who recommended TCM Healthcare. Under their guidance, I started a customised blend of herbs with precise preparation instructions. Within a few short weeks, my once never-ending period was down to just a few days of light bleeding, and my energy soared.
The effects of this treatment have lasted for almost a year now post-therapy, giving me renewed vitality, hormonal balance, and a better quality of life. I recently revisited TCM for some maintenance herbs.
They offer no grand promises, but together with your commitment, their wealth of ancient knowledge can help restore your well-being.

Claire came to us in 2019 at the age of 43 after she has been written off by fertlity clinics.
After struggling for two years to conceive post miscarriage, and in what is classed as the 'geriatric' years of my fertility, my husband came across TCM and Professor Au. After a phone consultation we agreed to some blood tests. These showed that I was silently suffering from PCOS, with no other symptoms apart from being unable to fall pregnant. I began taking the herbal drinks, and continued to do so for approximately 8 months before being thrilled to find out I was pregnant. Our daughter was born in early 2021 and I took the herbs again immediately after her birth to help my body recover and to optimise breast milk supply. In September 2021 I began another short course of the herbs and by January 2022 we were expecting our second baby.Our home and our hearts are full, thanks to the wonderful team at TCM. They are the utmost professionals, kind and caring. We have had both face to face and virtual consultations with them and even altered appointment times at short notice.We can not thank them enough for what they have helped us achieve, and we look forward to working with them again should we decide to try for baby number 3!

I am delighted to share the news with you all that my wife is pregnant and I have barely opened the 3rd herbs. This was confirmed yesterday. I am lost for words that in my second month of treatment what I have not been able to do in 11 years I have been able to achieve in 2 months of your treatment. I came to TCM by sheer luck through my search for a fertility remedy. I am a pessimist by nature so I felt I had nothing to lose to try this remedy. But goodness these guys are incredible and the countless of men who are experiencing sperm abnormalities need to hear it! I will eternally be grateful for all the support and will surely be back🙏🏽. Thank you all at TCM from the bottom of my heart 😊. We are feeling so blessed and happy. Best regards Michael.

I am very happy to announce the birth of our baby girl after 10 years of trying for baby. Despite being turned down by several fertility clinics due to my low AMH levels and high prolactin, I didn't loose faith and approached TCM after reading the success stories of women in same boat as me. I tried their herbs for 3 months and my prolactin levels reduced from 1400 to normal range. The IVF done was successful first time round. Professor Au at TCM was very helpful and guided me through. Being from a medical background, I didn't believe in herbs but as it was proven by blood tests before and after treatment, everything was science-based. I would say to anyone struggling with having a family please give them a call and speak to the Professor Au at TCM. All the best 🙂🙏

We tried for a baby for almost a year. Due to my age (37) I decided not to wait any longer and visited TCM Healthcare. The doctors asked me to do the hormone test first, where I found out that one of the hormone AMH was far too high, which indicated PCOS. I decided to start herbal therapy with TCM Healthcare. I was very impressed during my visits. The doctors were very supportive and explained me everything. The conclusion was that my body is in hormonal imbalance. I got herbs to prepare at home and drink regularly. After 3 rounds they advised me to take a month break. My hormones improved but I was advice for another round of herbs, I hardly even touched those and two weeks later I got a great news (positive pregnancy test). After few weeks I was offered special herbs to strengthen my pregnancy. Currently I am over 4 moths pregnant and feeling fantastic, grateful for all the help and support I received from TCM.

After 2 miscarriages and an ectopic pregnancy I did some research and came across TCM. I read the reviews and found that there were similar stories of mine that people had experienced. Prof Shun Au was very professional and started off with tests for both me and my husband. Based on his findings he gave us herbs that were to be taken in drink form for 3 months. Prof Au explained that after 3 months of taking these there will be another test to see if the levels were what they should be. Luckily for us after 3 months of the herbs we had really good results. Although it took us 8 months to get pregnant (probably due to work stress) our pregnancy was healthy and have been blessed with a baby. Also whilst taking the herbs I felt very energised. Highly recommend TCM - thank you Prof Au for your help.

My partner and I had being trying to conceive for a number of years without success.
My health was not always great and I often felt tired and was dragging myself through life.
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. He then arranged an appointment for me with Professor Y Li at TCM Healthcare's clinic in Harley Street, an expert trained in Chinese medicine and fertility in Beijing.
In the initial consultation the Professor asked questions and listened to my answers and explanation of my medical symptoms. He also took my pulses and looked at my tongue. His manner was always friendly and sympathetic and it was obvious he really wanted to help. He stressed Chinese medicine treats the whole body and said I should see improvements generally in my overall health along with the improvements in fertility.
I was prescribed herbs to be boiled with water which would make a hot drink to be taken twice per day. Although not the most tastefull drink I figured that it was doing me good and soon got quite used to my daily routine of drinking it morning and night.
I had follow-up appointments each month during which he would reassess my condition and would then refine the herbs I was to take for the following month.
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.

Keeley came to us with multiple issues: endometriosis, adenomyosis, polyps, damaged Fallopian tube and was advised her only way to pregnant was through IVF.
It feels very surreal to be writing this review 18 weeks pregnant after trying to conceive for our second child for over 6 years. I have endometriosis, polyps and adenomyosis as well as finding out in my last laparoscopy (I have had 4) that I also had a damaged Fallopian tube. My consultant told me my only possible chance would now be IVF. After researching IVF clinics I came across the website for TCM and just felt that we had to try this route first - at 39 (and my husband at 50) I knew we would only have a good chance with IVF if my body was healthy and hoped I may not need IVF at all. From speaking to Stephanie at the beginning I felt totally at ease and knew I was in good hands. I had blood tests to check all of my hormone levels and had a consultation with Dr Yang who asked me lots of questions on my overall health and advised me to only eat and drink warm foods. Both Stephanie and Dr Yang were warm and welcoming and made my husband and I feel totally at ease. I began on the herbs which were difficult to take at the start but I quickly got used to the taste. I was on the herbs for just under two months before my period was late. At first I thought maybe it was my body adjusting to the herbs but then I got a positive pregnancy test — the first in 8 years since my daughter and we honestly could not believe it. From my experience of TCM they are so knowledgeable in this field and the herbs work with your body to heal itself. I cannot praise or thank them enough as we now have a much wished for baby on the way! I would strongly recommend anyone trying to conceive to try this clinic as for us they really did work a miracle.

Pippa is 43 and Mark is in his 60s
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 miscarried 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.

Fred first came to us with virtually no sperm. His sperm county went up to 27 million after a few months of treatment. He went for IVF and had a son.
I went through two rounds of treatment with TCM. I notice after my second round that my sperm quality (morphology and motility) had improved dramatically. My count which was also non existent at one point went up by millions in a few months. I'm thankful for the support we received from TCM, they greatly helped on our journey to becoming parents. We now have a lovely 2 month old boy.

Hannah had been diagnosed with POF (Primary Ovarian Failure) and took HRT for two years as advised by her doctor.
She is back for second round of treatment. You can read more about her story on the clients' stories page.
I am back for my second round of treatment for Premature Ovarian Failure with TCM Healthcare. My first round resulted in drastically reduced FSH and then a successful pregnancy 3 years ago. Within a few months of this second round I have seen my cycles return and a huge reduction in symptoms such as hot flushes, lower back pain, low energy and mood. My TCM practitioners treat me as an individual with such care and compassion and the treatment is exactly tailored to my body’s needs. I would highly recommend this treatment to any woman suffering with diagnosed Premature Ovarian Failure.

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 can't 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 hysteroscopies, 2 failed IUIs and 3 failed IVF treatments 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 the 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 to 50, a third from 50 to 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.

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.

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 capsules on daily basis had side-effects 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 Healthcare for all those who have been trying to conceive but are unable to do so.
Thanks TCM Healthcare

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.
