“Supporting Ovarian Reserve with Chinese Medicine”
AMH / FSH Levels
Every woman is born with a fixed number of eggs. This is known as her ovarian reserve. As a woman grows older, her ovarian reserve decreases until she finally reaches menopause. Anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) are two female reproductive hormones which can be measured to indicate a woman’s ovarian reserve, and therefore her fertility. Low AMH levels and FSH levels rise are associated with reduced fertility.
At the GinSen, we offer a range of natural treatments to help you conceive naturally.
How Can Chinese Medicine help with Infertility due to low Ovarian Reserve (AMH & FSH)
In TCM, Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) levels are not seen as the cause of the fertility issues, but more the result of an underlying imbalance. The aim of a TCM practitioner is, therefore, to help the body to function at its best, by restoring reproductive health and encouraging a balanced system.
Using natural holistic methods, which have been practiced for centuries these treatments aim to reach the root cause of infertility and amend any deficiencies, giving you the highest chance of conceiving.
- Women over 36 unable to conceive after 6 months of trying

- Planning to undergo IVF or freezing egg with low ovarian reserve

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! Women’s eggs do not have an expiration date and their quality responds to their surroundings. They become less responsive when hormones fluctuate. By providing enough nutrients and improving the flow of Blood and Qi to your ovaries poor ovarian reserve can improve – and the quality of the egg can improve. (1)
As we age our Vital Reserves – our Jing reserves become depleted. Overwork, poor diet and excessive exercising can all exacerbate this problem, resulting in Yang Deficiency, Blood Deficiency and Qi Deficiency. According to Chinese Medicine low AMH levels indicate a deficiency in Kidney Yin energy, which is normally needed to make good, fertile eggs. TCM treatment would focus on nourishing Kidney Yin to optimise fertility, and promote energy and blood flow to the uterus.
AMH stands for Anti-Mullerian Hormone. AMH is produced directly by the ovaries and the levels of AMH correlate with the number of follicles in the ovaries. Women with lower AMH produce a lower number of eggs compared with women with higher levels and your levels of AMH levels provide information about your fertility. Levels of AMH will naturally decline with age and high levels can sometimes indicate Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
AMH levels naturally decrease as we age with age as the ovarian reserve is depleted – as women approach their 40s it is normal for them to have lower AMH readings. Satisfactory AMH levels are above 21.98. If your AMH levels are below this there are treatment options available to you including supplementation with DHEA. TCM has also been shown to help improve AMH levels naturally.(1)
Evidence supports the use of TCM treatment to optimise ovarian function. TCM considers Low ovarian reserve to be due to Kidney Deficiency and Blood Stasis. Kidney Deficiency in these patients will often express as dysfunction in the Meridians that relate to the Liver, Heart, and Spleen. TCM treatment will focus on supporting the Kidney energy and Vital Essence. In addition the Blood will be Tonified which will result in regulated menstrual cycle.
1. Vitamin D
Research demonstrates that women with low vitamin D levels tend to have lower AMH levels than women with healthy vitamin D levels. Some foods, like salmon and eggs, contain a small amount of vitamin D, but most of our vitamin D comes from the sun. On average we need 10 minutes of direct sunlight or 30 minutes outdoors on a cloudy day to meet our vitamin D requirements.
2. Managing our weight
It is important to maintain a health weight and to ensure that your diet is full of fresh food and plenty of cooked vegetables. Being overweight has a negative effect on AMH levels.
3. Regular exercise
A recent study (3) investigated the impact of a 45 minute walk three times per week for 12 weeks, and saw some great results!
