Unexplained infertility can be one of the most frustrating diagnoses to receive. One of the many strengths of Chinese medicine is an emphasis on menstrual cycle health and its ability to make subtle changes to the cycle that can improve fertility, even when no issues can be found with medical testing. In fact, many women are relieved to hear that their random collection of symptoms makes sense from a Chinese medicine perspective. These women have usually had a battery of tests before we see them that have not shed light on why they are struggling to conceive, so their first question is “If nothing is wrong, why can’t I get pregnant?”
Fortunately Chinese medicine does not believe in an unexplained diagnosis. If we can determine the Chinese medicine pattern then we can treat it accordingly. Chinese diagnosis is based on identifying patterns of disharmony so an acupuncturist will look for signs that have meaning when seen in relation to each other and then use acupuncture and Chinese herbs to balance out the body.
The most common causes of unexplained infertility are: environmental toxicity & endocrine disruption, adrenal dysfunction, thyroid dysfunction, nutritional deficiencies, autoimmune and inflammatory problems (this has a lot to do with gut health). We can take a look at some of these closer through targeted testing.
Once we can determine the possible cause and Chinese medicine pattern we can then use the appropriate acupuncture points and herbs to help the patient have greater success in conceiving.
