In traditional Chinese medicine, the treatment of infertility has a long history, and the efficacy has been clinically confirmed. Traditional Chinese medicine has rich experience in the treatment and application of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and its theoretical system is also very perfect. Among them, the theories of "regulating measurement before precedence," "Yin and Yang knead each other, so there are children" still have guiding value in modern medical treatment.
According to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, "the kidney is mainly responsible for the reproductive function," "menstruation is related to the kidney," "menstruation is controlled by the kidney," etc., the kidney Qi is abundant and exuberant, the kidney essence is enriched, menstruation is promoted, Qi and blood are harmonious, and pregnancy will occur after menstruation is adjusted. If kidney Qi is not sufficient, kidney essence is insufficient, and Qi and blood are maladjusted, it can't be gestated. Therefore, nourishing kidney and regulating menstruation seed is an important method of treating infertility in traditional Chinese medicine. At present, there are a variety of treatment methods for infertility in traditional Chinese medicine, including retention enema, auricular point sticking and pressing, traditional Chinese medicine internal administration, famous prescriptions, and so on.
The kidney is the root of everything and the source of reproduction. If the kidney is deficient, it will lead to a very difficult pregnancy. Therefore, assisted reproductive technology treatment should also start from the kidney, which is generally recognized in medicine. In the view of many scholars of traditional Chinese medicine, the mechanism balance of the reproductive axis of kidney, Tiangui, Chongren, and uterus is fundamental to maintain the menstrual cycle, in which the kidney is the most important organ, so kidney deficiency is the basic cause of various symptoms of infertility. Through the treatment of tonifying Yin and yang to strengthen Chong Ren, we can get the fundamental effect. There are many kinds of traditional Chinese medicine treatment methods based on this, among which kidney tonifying therapy is the basic treatment. Syndrome differentiation and treatment is the basis to complete the symptomatic treatment combined with modern medical means, which can significantly improve the internal environment of follicle, endometrium, fallopian tube, improve the rate of embryo implantation, provide conditions for its normal growth and development, and prevent complications.
In modern clinical application, it has been proved that the traditional Chinese medicine of tonifying kidney and Qi can promote blood circulation, improve the blood supply of uterus and the microenvironment of the endometrium, regulate the reproductive endocrine axis, regulate the ovarian reserve function and its responsiveness, improve the number and quality of high-quality eggs, lay a foundation for the combination of sperm and egg and the growth and development of the embryo, reduce the occurrence of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, and have an overall effect. The advantage of regulation can ensure the success rate of pregnancy.
