These approaches help to regulate ovulation, female hormone levels as well as create a fertile environment. Acupuncture is also very successful in aiding embryo attachment for a successful pregnancy.
Chinese herbal medicine can help to regulate ovaries, aid in egg maturation, improve egg quality, and promote circulation in the oviduct, thus preventing obstruction of oviducts.

For best results, acupuncture should be performed weekly due to the monthly menstruation cycle that comprises 4 different and important phases. These recurrent phases include menstruation, the growth of follicles, ovulation and the production of progesterone.
How many treatments are required?
In Chinese medicine, menstruation cycle is the manifestation of the hormonal status of the body. Indeed, people who suffer from fertility issues always suffer from irregular menstruation or problems associated with periods; therefore, the treatment plan for the first 1 to 3 months is to regulate periods (body hormones).

What is ovulation?Ovulation is the release of a single, mature egg from the ovarian follicle. The human ovary produces a multitude of ova during the course of a month, the largest of which is expelled into the pelvic cavity and swept into the Fallopian tube. Ovulation does not follow a regular pattern between the ovaries during each cycle, and the ovary that releases the egg is fairly arbitrary. Once released, the egg is capable of being fertilized for 12 to 24 h before it begins to disintegrate. If the released ovum or egg is fertilized and successfully gets implanted, it results in pregnancy.
How does acupuncture and Chinese medicine help in ovulation?
Acupuncture before or around ovulation will help in the process of ovulation, i.e. the enlargement of follicles and release of matured egg. Acupuncture after ovulation will help in the transport and implantation of the fertilized egg. However, for some patients without ovulation due to hormonal issues, Chinese herbal medicine could be prescribed to improve the female hormone levels.
