Traditional Chinese Medicine for Family Planning


Addressing the Common Challenge
of #TTC

Difficulties in Conceiving has become a prevalent issue in today’s society, affecting countless couples who dream of starting a family.

By combining medical interventions, such as assisted reproductive technologies, with Traditional Chinese Medicine, couples can empower themselves on their journey to parenthood.

It is essential to approach challenges in conceiving with complimentary healthcare (TCM), considering both the physical and emotional aspects, to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Common Underlying Causes

Hard to conceive can have various underlying causes, and identifying the specific cause is crucial for developing appropriate management plans.

Ovulation Disorders

Irregular or absent ovulation can make it difficult for a woman to conceive. 

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Hormonal Imbalances 
  • Thyroid Disorder
  • Premature Ovarian Failure

Fallopian Tube Issues

Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes can prevent the sperm from reaching the egg or hinder the fertilised egg from traveling to the uterus for implantation.

  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
  • Endometriosis

Male Factor

Male contributes to approximately 40% of infertility cases.

  • Low sperm count
  • Poor sperm motility or morphology
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Genetic disorders
  • Reproductive tract blockages

Uterine Abnormalities

Structural abnormalities in the uterus, such as:

  • Uterine fibroids
  • Polyps
  • Congenital malformations

can interfere with implantation or cause difficulties in maintaining a pregnancy.

Age-related Factors

As women age, the quantity and quality of their eggs decline, leading to weak conceive ability.

Advanced maternal age is associated with a higher risk of infertility and an increased likelihood of chromosomal abnormalities in embryos.

Unexplained Factors

In some cases of unexplained infertility, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can provide valuable insights and approaches to enhance fertility.

TCM views infertility as an imbalance in the body’s vital energies, and addressing these imbalances can optimise reproductive health.
