Endocrinologist 's  Response
Hello and thanks for asking.
I have gone through your question.

Some herbs and health foods claim to reduce FSH levels, which might increase your odds of getting pregnant in some cases.
Traditional Chinese medicine treats infertility, including infertility associated with high FSH levels, with a blend of herbs. Acupuncture might also be part of the treatment plan.

Also,some herbs have gained a reputation for being helpful with infertility, including red clover and Agnus castus, also known as vitex or chasteberry.

However, despite their popularity as alternative treatments for infertility, neither has been clinically proved to be effective in lowering FSH.

So,to resume,my answer for you is:
Eating an overall healthy diet, one low in trans fats and higher in vegetable proteins rather than animal fats, appears to improve fertility in general, but it hasn't been specifically proved to lower FSH.

In my opinion this is not possible,there is no scientific evidence that food or acupuncture can lower FSH.
Anyway i suggest to talk with your local medical practitioner before you start to take herbs or health foods to lower FSH.

Hope you find my information useful.
If you have other questions,feel free to ask.
Thank you for using HCM
Wish you good health.
