Among the lifestyle habits of modern day such as an impossible diet and overeating, mental stress, use of air conditioning, it seems to be more than what we think that will cause abnormal menstruation in women.  In abnormal menstruation cycles and in cases of ovulation failure, there will be the so called, “cold organ condition”- in other words, there are many people that have a condition of having a cool body and reducing body strength, and in addition it is said that 74% of vital substance deficiency, blood fluid congestion, blood stasis, and blood deficiency are common in accounting for infertility.  It is a very important thing to adjust the physical condition in order to be blessed with the next generation of life and give birth and raise the child.


As for Chinese medical therapy, it will give help that will adjust the balance of the above mentioned.  In Chinese Medical Outpatient, the so called 3 major traditional Chinese medicines: will start with Angelica & peony powder (Japanese: Toukishakuyakusan 当帰芍薬散 includes Japanese Angelica root 当帰, and peony powder 芍薬), Modified Merry Life powder (Japanese: Kamishouyousan 加味逍遙散 includes Japanese Angelica root 当帰, peony root 芍薬, Bupleurum root 柴胡), cassia twig & tuckahoe pill (Japanese: Keishibukuryougan 桂枝茯苓丸 includes moutan bark 牡丹皮, and peach kernel 桃仁) and then with Meridian warming decoction (Japanese: Unkeitou 温経湯 includes euodia fruit 呉茱萸, cinnamon bark 桂枝, and Japanese Angelica root 当帰) and Kidney-Qi pill (Japanese: Hachimijiougan 八味地黄丸 includes rehmannia root 地黄) will be adjusted to the physical condition and used.


Not only is it just western medicine and advanced reproductive medicine, in addition by use of a combination of Chinese traditional medicine, it has been reported also good survey results that good embryos have been obtained, and that there has been an increase in the pregnancy rate.

Additionally, acupuncture is also effective in regards to the blood stasis that occurs easily to stress.
Depending on a combination of the above methods, I am hoping that one if not many will get pregnant.
