When you have polycystic ovarian syndrome, it changes the hormonal pathways in your body that produces eggs and prepare the uterus for pregnancy. The three most important reasons why becoming pregnant, or staying pregnant may be more challenging for women with PCOS can be:

  • Do not ovulate
  • Tend to have irregular periods rather than the usual predictable monthly cycles
  • When and if an egg is released, the endometrium (lining of the Uterus) may not be be sufficiently prepared to sustain the pregnancy.

    In Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) , practitioners describe PCOS as a Kidney Deficiency. In TCM, the symptom of irregular or absent menstrual periods, along with the absence of ovulation is considered a kidney disease process. The kidney in TCM is the organ system that is regarded with any genetic disorder and, thus, considered the root cause in polycystic ovarian syndrome. TCM also considers PCOS to be a spleen deficiency. TCM believes that when the function of the spleen is improved, it can help to regulate blood glucose and weight gain. A healthy spleen also ends excessive fluid accumulation in ovarian cysts.

    The main goal when trying to improve fertility in women with PCOS is to induce ovulation, thus conceive naturally. To induce ovulation, TCM practitioners treat the main organs, including the kidney, spleen, and liver. The practitioner may use a combination of acupuncture, moxibustion and herbal therapy.

Throughout my life, I have always found exams of any kind extremely stressful. Recently, when I was training to be an aerobics instructor, the thought of the practical examination filled me with dread. I had several acupuncture treatments in the run up to my exam to relieve anxiety and reduce stress. The acupuncture, herbal medicine, breathing exercises and reflexology massages made a huge difference. Although I did still suffer some nerves on the day of the exam, the overall effect was that the stress reduced significantly and I passed the exam. I cannot thank GinSen enough, they taught me to control my nerves, and without them, I am not sure I would have made it through my exam quite so easily
