Optimally, treatment should begin at least three months prior to attempts to conceive as it takes approximately three months for a follicle to develop and furthermore, to ensure the body is at its naturally healthiest, fertile state.
Preconception treatment may be divided into two stages should a woman have an underlying condition. The initial treatment plan must essentially address the underlying condition before moving onto the next stage in regulating the menstrual cycle.
Embarking on pre-conception treatment to ensure a healthy regulated cycle is particularly relevant if you have been diagnosed with ‘Unexplained Infertility’. This diagnosis often leads many women to be referred for ART, however this is where TCM has its strengths as it promotes hormonal homeostasis for a more balanced body and mind. And subsequently, a more regulated and fertile menstrual cycle with healthier follicles and eggs.
The following conditions may be helped with Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to improve your chances of conception:
- Unexplained causes
- Amenorrhea (no menses)
- Irregular and Anovulatory menstrual cycles
- Immunological Factors
- Luteal Phase Defect (LPD)
- Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
- Premature Ovarian Failure (POF)
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
- Poor Egg Quality
- Thin Endometrium (uterine) lining
