To be used as a supplement to a balanced diet when planning to have a successful pregnancy. This is the "before ovulation" formula intended to enhance fertility.
The Western scientific perspective the menstrual cycle lasts an average of 28 days with ovulation occurring at approximately 10 to 12 days after the end of the menses. This period preceding ovulation can be quite variable in length. Prior to ovulation egg development occurs within a developing ovarian follicle under the influence of pituitary FSH (follicle stimulating hormone).
Ovulation occurs when a mature ovarian follicle is stimulated to release an egg under the influence of an LH (luteinizing hormone) surge following an estrogen surge. Regular, symptom-free menstrual cycles would be a key sign that ovulation is occurring appropriately.
From the Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective Kidney Qi weakness can affect the fertility of women. The TCM etiology is that there is a congenital Foundation weakness. Kidney Qi deficiency causes weakness in the Chong and Ren Channels and disharmony of Qi and Blood.
An alternate etiology would be when the Chong and Ren Channels are attacked by Wind-Cold which causes stagnation in the uterus. All of this brings about uterine dampness, cold, phlegm and stasis all of which feedback on each other and reinforce each other causing functional infertility in the woman.
TCM Indication: Stagnation of the Liver Qi with Blood and Yin deficiency marked by irregular menstruation, light back pain, lower abdominal pain, emotional changes due to depression or stress. It is possible that no diagnostic symptoms are present other than infertility.
The goal of this formula is directed at the pre-ovulatory period of the menstrual cycle to enhance the ovarian follicle and egg development and to ensure ovulation within a normal, rhythmic menstrual cycle.
Clinical TCM research in China shows that this formula enhances estrin, progestin and estradiol levels and also improves uterine cell receptor function for FSH and LH binding. Pregnancy-2-Womb product which should be taken after ovulation during the 2nd half of the menstrual cycle.
