    Ahh I see..I did eat his even though I had a new box of Eu Yan Seng bak foong pills sitting at home..I figured that I already spent lots of money on my IVF and FETs, what's more some bak foong pills..His staff also ask me to buy ovulation sticks and pregnancy stick which I already had..I just buy lor and tested as much as I liked..It's not extremely expensive, mine was much more expensive..But if it gives his staff a peace of mind on what instructions I need to follow to exactly determine my ovulation date then so be it..

    Hihi,

    Dr Tan did not sell me his bak foong pills. He told me i can purchase from him if i do not want to search ard. He said i can just get any 乌鸡白凤丸 and i jist bought today and brought it to his clinic to let him see if it is ok.

    I bought 北京同仁堂乌鸡白凤丸and he checked the item and said this is ok. Can eat this.

    So said i can give the EYS pills to elderly like my mum for general health, which i just did too. Dont waste.

    He did not sell me ovulation strips too. I juz tell him i have been using my own.

    So far he did not hard sell me pdt.

    But i also agree that his med are expensive..hope we can strike soon and save some money..

    Hi, I'm new to the thread. We just visited Dr Tan last week as DH's SA especially morphology is less than 1%. He didn't ask us to eat raw fish maw though. Anyone care to share if his treatment has been effective? The first visit cost us over $200. Hopefully can strike soon else not very sustainable at this rate.

    I also hope to hear more success stories from the group.

    My husband is still visiting him for his acupuncture and supplements. Dr Tan did not give him other medicines.

    Did he prescribe for u?

    For me, i diligently ate his med for 1 month and my regular 28 days cycle suddenly becomes 33 days. So i stopped seeing him and just continue with my supplememts and tonic soup. I will finish all his med..coz they r expensive.......

    I intend to do another SA in Dec, another 3 months after seeing Dr Tan to see my husband results improve...

    Just sharing experience. I'm a 29 yr old male with morphology problems (100% head defects). Visited Dr Tan for the first time today. He gave advice on lifestyle (jog at 7-8am or 6-7pm in a park to absorb more oxygen, swim in the afternoon to cool the body, esp down there), prescribed medicine and fish maw, and did acupuncture on ears and stomach to improve slp quality and blood flow.

    Paid $284 for me and my wife (she had medicine and acupuncture as well) but felt it was worth it compared to consultation with Dr Loh from Thomson Fertility Centre. Dr Loh would just see us for 5-10 min and charge us $100+ each time with hardly any advice or treatment.

    Could it be that your period is late hence you have not seen your ewcm? Mine got somewhat later after I started seeing him

    Oh he didn't ask my hubby to take fish maw. I even asked Dr if he needs fish maw but Dr said no need. He also has >1% morphology issue Acupuncture seemed the same.

    I'll try to observe more since I'm only with him for the first cycle. Just that after taking the an tai Yao, I started to spotting 4 days before my period. It wasn't like that in the past. Wondering if anyone has this side effects too?

    Thanks for the reply. All the best to you too!

    Is the
    I suppose the hormone and testosterone test is for you? What kind of hormone test is that? Can I also check if your Wife has any premedical condition?

    Sorry I wasn't clear. Yes the tests were for me. Just to check what's the cause of my condition. Like is it due to hormones, or other reasons. Then Dr Tan will treat me accordingly

    She doesn't hv any existing conditions, but Dr Tan urged her to go for acupuncture and take medicine nonetheless. Today I did acupuncture again for the back. Apparently it's 1 week back (apparently it's for the kidney), and 1 week stomach acupuncture each time. $42 for me today, not so bad

    Since the start of the yr, so abt 10 months? After a few months, we felt something wasn't right and went for a fertility check at Thomson Fertility Centre. Indeed, my results weren't gd. Tried Dr Loh's supplements but no noticeable change. So switched to TCM with Dr Tan. I've read abt his successful cases before, so hoping for the best!

    Hi,

    Thank you so much for sharing with us the details of your check.

    Really hope to see if there is positive effect on morphology.

    My husband is going to the Dr Tan weekly for acupuncture. Hopefully it helps him..

    Still not very confident with him. i dilgently took him med and acupuncture for 2 cycle and my cycle days changed from 28-29 days to 32-33 days. everything else remains constant..

    So i stopped his medication and my cycle returns to 29 days cycle..

    As Dr Tan specialized in male fertility, i hope my husband and all other gentlemen who are seeing him will have a positive effect.

    Praying hard......

    He has a lot of successful cases. Just today one lady was reporting that she missed her period. So we just gotta trust him I guess =/

    Ya, for us, we dunno who else to go to too.

    So my husband is still going to see him on a weekly basis for his accupunture but Dr tan did not give him any medication. He is eating those supplement which he prescribe the first time we saw him.

    In Dec, we will go for another SA. That will be 4mths since we saw Dr Tan. Good chance to do another SA. hopefully we can see positive results.

    You guys are so positive! Need to learn from you all. Been TTC-ing since May and I feel abit helpless. Most of my friends were able to conceive within 3months so i thought we had some issues. And it turned out to be the “swimmers”.

    His medicine didn’t extend my period but it caused me to spot heavily before my period. Last time, I only spot 1-2 days and v mild. After the medicine, I started heavy spotting on 10dpo all the way till I had my menses. Will try eating it for another cycle before I see if i need to stop and just do accupunture.
