Female Fertility

Nurturing Female Fertility with Traditional Chinese medicine

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been used for over 2,000 years to treat infertility. Obstetrics and gynaecology have always been recognised as very important areas of medicine in the Chinese classical texts, with a number of books dedicated to the subject.

TCM for Female Fertility – How it Works

The most important indicator of the health of a woman’s reproductive system is her menstrual cycle. The reason for this is that it reflects the balance of her hormones.

Many hormones are released in a woman’s body at different times of her cycle, with the aim of timely, good quality ovulation, a good thick lining and a regular healthy period.

Imbalances in the hormones result in painful and/or irregular periods, endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), fibroids, low AMH, poor egg quality and miscarriage. TCM may assist in balancing hormones and be restorative in the context of women’s reproductive health. Stress from daily life and fertility issues can play a major role in a woman’s fertility journey.

TCM is very effective at relieving stress and anxiety, resulting in more balanced mental health.

TCM Treatment to Support Fertility

TCM treatment for fertility will involve acupuncture, Chinese herbs and dietary advice. Cupping, moxibustion and Gua Sha may also be incorporated into the treatment if indicated.

Different acupuncture points and herbs are selected according to where you are in your cycle, and we address any blockages/imbalances in your qi. This may assist in balancing hormones and improving health, thus improving your chance of successful conception.
