Firstly, acupuncture could increase blood flow to the ovaries and pelvic region, as a result nourishing the development of follicles and creating better egg quality. It also helps to balance the hormone production and improving corpus luteum quality, making the uterus lining thicker and ready for conception. (Source: Click Here)

Other benefits of acupuncture might include: making the body more relaxed, reducing stress levels and improving women’s wellbeing. The high-stress level can block blood flow to the pelvic region which results in the irregular menstrual cycle and causing hormone imbalances.

Chinese Medicine will improve the development of strong embryos by supplying rich-nutrient to the blood. This will then nourish the development of the follicles and improve corpus luteum and hence creating better egg quality.

Once this LPD issue is resolved by Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, women can become fertile because the hormone is now balanced and the reproductive health is being restored to the normal state. This will definitely increase the chance of successful conception for couples who are trying to conceive.

A Luteal Phase Defect (LPD) is a disruption in a woman’s monthly menstrual cycle. Having luteal phase defect means that each month, the lining of the uterus does not grow to a proper size. As a result, it will cause a woman to be infertile. Generally, during the ovulation phase, the lining of women’s uterus will be thicker to prepare for possible conception/pregnancy.

Causes of Luteal Phase Defect

The cause of Luteal Phase defects usually because the ovaries do not produce enough progesterone. As a result, the lining of the uterus does not grow properly each month. In short, the main cause of LPD is the hormone imbalance affecting the growth of uterine lining in women’s body.

There are typical symptoms of LPD that women should be aware of, this includes; shorter menstrual cycle, infertility, low basal body temperature, breast tenderness, low back pain, fatigue, etc.
