Hi......anyone try traditional chinese medicine at Thomson Medical Centre? Any reveiew? thanks.
Hi, i conceived no. 1 after seeing dr tan (clementi) for 2 months. Am seeing him again as i am trying for no. 2.
I have recommended him to my girlfriend and she got conceived after a few cycles too.
Good luck and baby dust to all who is currently seeing dr tan
I just went to get an tai yao from Dr Tan KS after I had a bfp. Can I find out how long did you have to take the an tai yao on your first pregnancy? The medicine is quite pricey and it is quite difficult for me to take the medicine cos of morning sickness.
hi, anyone care to share where is dr tan ks @ clementi? was thinking to see this traditional chinese medicine since i'm trying and it's been recommended here.
I was referred to Chris Chen by traditional chinese medicine sinseh also. But after reading so much review about him, I decided not to go to him for the check. It is way too expensive. So decided to look for another gynae instead. I was diagnosed with endometriosis from this traditional chinese medicine doc from Jurong east.
Anyone got treated by her with the same conditions and conceived successfully?
I am new to this forum, formerly active in another baby/trying to concieve forum.
I am just wondering...
any of you heard of cases whereby the woman got successful in trying to concieve for the first baby with the help of traditional chinese medicine, and subsequently can get #2 without traditional chinese medicine?
I got my first born after 2 months of traditional chinese medicine. Now trying for #2. Been trying for two months (ie. stop using precautions). So far, no news. Not sure if I should go back to traditional chinese medicine. My hubby say try first. If still cannot, then traditional chinese medicine again.
The sinseh did not even ask me question. Took my pulse for a very short while and say I got fibroids on my left ovary (I dont know whether she meant cysts cuz fibroids dont't grow on ovaries). Also said I have sinus. Asked me whether I have my own gynae. I told her that I was seeing her just to improve my health and was not trying to concieve'ing. Also told her that I have my own gynae.
Even since then, I didn't go back to her. Cuz firstly, she looked young and I only trust TCMs that have many years of experience. Secondly, she read my pulse for 10 seconds and then concluded that I have fertility problem.
Two years later, I started to seriously trying to concieve. After half a year of trying, no news. I remembered what the sinseh said. So I went ahead with laparoscopy at Thomson, by Dr Cheng who is the head of the fertility dept there. He found nothing and even took pictures of my ovaries etc.
I turned to other sinsehs and finally got pregnant.

A lot of ppl highly recommend her. But my own experience is a good enough testimony that she is not reliable. Totally dont have good impression or opinion of her.
After that I went to Raffles Hospital's traditional chinese medicine. Not sure whether it's good or not. Cuz I was quite put off by the sinseh throughout my few visits there (I bought a package that include a few rounds of acupuncture). The sinseh kept saying that I produced no egg even though I have ovulation. Very hurting . And she has to say it repeatedly.
The last one that I went to, which eventually helped me get pregnant was one sinseh from Tong Chai Medical. Dr Loh. I didn't go Tong Chai medical to see her. I went to her private clinic at Upper Cross Street. I went to see her after Christmas in 2007. I got pregnant in Feburary (BFP on 29 Feb). This Dr Loh last time helped my counsin who was barren. Now my cousin has 5 kids and the eldest already past 21 years old. So my cousin trusted Dr Loh very much. And I chose to trust Dr Loh cuz she has so many years of experience (definitely more than 21 years).
I have also considered going to Thong Chai medical for help after my medical checkup from Kandang Kerbau Hospital. Since you mention Dr Loh, I'm quite keen to see her too. Which Dr Loh you referring to, as I know that there is 2 Dr Loh at the centre? At the medical centre I understand will have to queue up early for consultation, but am not sure how is it like at her clinic? How much you pay for each visit at her clinic, as I believe since its her own clinic i'm sure will have to pay for the medicines and consultation? Lastly, is it possible to provide her details like clinic address, phone number and opertaing hours?
Will be very much appreciated for your help
Going to Thong Chai is a good move. It's free. You dont't have to worry that the sinseh is out to cheat your money. If you think the physician is good or simply want to help this charity, you can always drop your donation money at level 1. I think most of the physicians have their own clinic outside. They are only at Thong Chai in the morning. I chose to go see Dr Loh at her private clinic cuz I didn't want to queue and plus I couldn't keep taking leave to see her in the morning at Thong Chai.
Thong Chai usually give you the prescription and maybe one free pack of the medicine. Then you have to go home and brew. I always believe that brewed chinese medicine are most effective.
For those of you ladies who have concerns about hubby having low sperm count, have you ever thought of giving your hubby cordyceps (冬虫草)?
When I was trying to concieve-ing more than 2 years ago, my sinseh advised me to give my hubby this. She told me to buy cordyceps in powder form (ie grinded) and boil it with a few pieces of wolfberries (枸杞).
So I bought the cordyceps and requested for it to be grinded.
Every few days I will take one very small spoon of the powder (use one of those plastic disposal stirrer) and a few pieces of wolfberries, boil with water and then let my hubby drink. I also drink some of it since both cordyceps and wolfberries are good for health.
Not sure whether this did help my hubby's sperm count. But no harm trying since it's good for health.
