Deciding to have a child can be one of the most exciting times in your life, but the ability to conceive and bear a child is one that a lot of us take for granted. Fertility issues are one of the most common reasons patients seek out Chinese Medicine, with Acupuncture becoming a widely accepted approach; and often partnered with western medicine.
Each path to parenthood is different and so are the challenges along the way. But if your having trouble conceiving, don’t face it alone.
OPTIMISING FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH
Lets work to optimise every aspect of the reproductive cycle. This includes regulating the menstrual cycle and fertility hormones, increasing uterine and ovarian blood flow, and enhancing growth of the endometrial lining and follicular development.
Unfortunately, neither western medicine nor Chinese medicine can increase your egg supply. Nature provides us with a limited supply, however nurturing their environment by increasing blood flow to the ovaries, providing additional nourishment and improving their potential to fertilise is something Tempe is passionate about.
For implantation to occur and the embryo to develop, it’s important that the lining of the uterus is thick and healthy, full of nutrients and with optimum blood flow.
ANOVULATON (NO OVULATION)
Most women think that as long as they’re having a period, they’re ovulating. This isn’t always the case, with many reasons why ovulation doesn’t occur - including stress or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Lets correct your cycle and switch on ovulation!
If your cycle is unpredictable, there could be an underlying cause. Through tools such as BBT charing (body basal temperature), Tempe will help you establish which part of your cycle is leading to the irregularity, whether pre or post ovulation.
FOLLICULAR & LUTEAL PHASE DEFECTS
There are two parts to the menstrual cycle: before ovulation (the follicular phase) and post ovulation (the luteal phase). Each produces hormones that prepare your body for egg fertilisation and pregnancy. An imbalance in one, or both, parts of your cycle can lead to anovulation, irregular cycles or infertility.
For a woman who has experienced a miscarriage, there are no words that can describe the pain, uncertainty and fear that this experience will have upon her.
Establishing the timeframe misscarriage occured can be a good indicator of what happened, providing insight into preparing the body for further pregnancies.
