If getting pregnancy has been a challenge for you and your partner, you're not alone.Today there is an 1 in 8 chance you either know someone with infertility or you are experiencing the challenges of infertility yourself.
What causes infertility in women?
Disorders of the reproductive and endocrinal systems are common causes of female infertility. These disorders can be either structural or dysfunctional. Problems with ovulation account for most cases of infertility in women.
The common reasons include:
* Long-term stress/depression affecting the ovarian function to cause ovarian mal-development, or early failure. Some young females suffer from amenorrhea when they undergo PHD study, or high degree courses, or after a severe accident.
* Excessive physical work or training during¡¤ puberty causes mal-development in the ovaries or uterus resulting in rnenoxenia, often seen in some athletes and dancers.
* Excessive use of the contraceptive pill causes imbalance of Oestrogen & Progesterone causing their ovarian activity decreased.
* Marriage or pregnancy in later ages.
* Taking drugs, or excessive alcohol intake.
Less common reasons include:
Blocked fallopian tubes, physical problems with the uterus, uterine fibroids.
why is traditional chinese medicine so successful on female infertility?
Traditional Chinese medicine developed by Chinese doctors through the centuries help women enhance their reproducive potential by harmonising the endocrine system, which regulates the menstrual cycle. Without ovulation, there are no eggs to be fertilized. About two-thirds of couples who are treated for infertility are able to have a baby.
Traditional chinese medicine may act on the ovulatory phase; it may regulate the secretion of mucus; it may stimiulate the uterus; or it may assist in the production of adequate progesterone. For example, many Chinese herbs that produce phytoestrogenic activity also act on the ovaries, while they impact on the central nervous system. Because it affects many different parts of the body's own natuural processes, herbal medicine is a gentler, more organic response to fertility problems.
How does traditional Chinese medicine support IVF treatment?
IVF means fertilization outside of the body.,which is often used when a woman's fallopian tubes are blocked or when a man produces too few sperm.. IVF is the most effective assisted reproductive technology(ART), however, it is very costly and success rates vary and depend on many factors.such as: age of the partners, reason for infertility.
The data shows that women in their 20s and early 30s who used ART had the most success with pregnancies,but success rates declined steadily once a woman reached her mid-30s because of the declines of health of a woman's eggs with age.
Ovulation disorders, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), early menopause, benign uterine fibroids, Endometriosis and pelvic infection all can decrease success rates of IVF. Some even can risk an ectopic pregnancy.
If you are older, pre-menopausal women, or have some underlying causes can lead to infertility, or have several times of failed IVF, you need require herbal medicine, acupuncture treatment with IVF.
Acupuncture combined with Chinese herbal medicine has such effects: Stimulate and strengthen the self-regulation functions, promote ovulation and strengthen self-healing function. By a way of analogy: acupuncture and herbal treatment function like ploughing which makes the seeds easier to implant. If a patient is in a good general and local condition, she will also easily conceive in a natural way, or with the help of IVF etc.
