How Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine help infertility treatment?

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is been use as fertility treatment for many years, recently about 20 years it has been incorporated into the western medical treatment protocol helping those who are having trouble conceiving. When administered by qualified and highly experienced practitioners, it can benefit and further improve the success of pregnancy even further. Here are reasons to use TCM to help treat fertility issues such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis and blocked fallopian tubes.
 
Holistic approach to improve health.
Subfertility is view as imbalance or lack of function in the body. This lack of function and imbalance result in difficulty to achieve conception naturally, from the perspective of TCM. Western medicine focuses on replacing the function in our body by giving hormonal medicines and surgical techniques, TCM focuses on improving quality and the functions of our body to its normal state, this also explain why TCM generally take longer time to see the effect compare to  Western medicine. Condition that is more serious will take longer time to recover.
 
Improve endocrine and reproductive organs' functions.
In the last decades, clinical studies and numerous research done in university hospital have shown that Chinese herbal medicine can regulate gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH)and ovarian sex hormones to induce  ovulation naturally and promote blood flow to ovaries to improve ovarian reserve. TCM target underlying causes of subfertility simultaneously, such as poor oocyte (egg) quality, endocrine functions, uterine environment and uterine lining. TCM is based on balance of Yin and Yang, Qi and Blood circulation perspective. In tandem with modern medical science, ovarian function is restored through improving blood circulation to reproductive organs, regulating hormone secretion,  reducing systemic inflammation and anti-tumour effect.
 
According to research and observation done by The Third Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University, Suzhou Wuzhong People’s Hospital, and University of Technology Sydney, NSW, after just 12 weeks of treatment with TCM, the evidence is clear that it improves menstrual cycle, and improves hormones levels suggesting that the quality of oocyte and function of corpus luteum improved significantly.
 
Supports and complements Western fertility treatments and A.R.T
Paper published by the Journal of Integrative Medicine in 2017, a peer-reviewed journal by Changhai Hospital of Shanghai, shows that co-treating conditions like PCOS with TCM and Western medicine is more effective than using Western Medicine alone. TCM or Chinese Herbal Medicine not just treat and improve patient condition when use by itself but it will complement and synergize the effect of the Western medicine as well.
 
 
Natural with very little to no side effect profile, non-invasive.
Chinese herbal medicine,  is made from natural products that are plant most of the time, it involves no or minimal side effects when consumed correctly. The medicine is prescribed by qualified doctor. Chinese herbal medicine help reduce inflammation or improving blood circulation and the functions of reproductive organs, some patients even be able to conceive naturally without the need for invasive surgeries or hormonal drugs.
