A normal menstrual cycle is normally from 28- 35 days, without any
symptom that causes discomfort (excluding dull pain) and menstrual
discharge is red and last from 3- 5 days without spotting. Not all women
with abnormal menstrual cycle are infertile, but if you are diagnosed
with the unexplained cause of infertility, then your abnormal menstrual
cycle may be the cause. Traditional Chinese medicine, before treating
any cause of infertility would like to restore your normal menstrual
cycle so you can conceive quickly. Girls in southest Asia has learnt
early from the grandmother wisdoms, that maintaining the normal
menstrual cycle is the main objective for easy conception and any
menstrual disorder should be looked after immediately.
Depending to how the Chinese practitioner divides the menstrual cycle, it may be 4 or 5 phrases.
I would like to make it easily for the reader, by dividing it to 4 phrase (it is still the same).
I. Phase I -the yin phase (about 12 - 14 days)
the beginning of the yin phrase, yin surges (the rise of estrogen) that
leads to the growth of fluids in the uterus, that not only helps to
moisten the uterus, but also thickens the endometriosis in order to
prepare the uterus for normal conception. The increasing yin also
supports the production of blood and produces sperm friendly mucus which
is important for sperm invasion.
In conventional medicine as the
estrogen rise, the brain signals the hypothalamus to secret
gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (FSH), which in turn stimulates the
pituitary gland to produce the follicle stimulating hormone that
initiates the growth and recruitment of immature follicles in the
II. Phase II - ovulation phase (about 4 days)
the yin (estrogen) at its peak, liver triggers the start the ovulation
phrase by extruding the mature follicle into the fallopian tube. In this
phrase, uterus continues producing sperm friendly mucus as qi and blood
move downward to warm the uterus and promote the implantation of the
III. Phase III - the yang or luteal phase (about 12 -14 days)
the egg is extruded into fallopian tube, liver transform yin energy to
yang that trigger the yang ( progesterone) phrase. At this phrase, blood
and qi move down ward, the endometrial lining become softer to prepare
the implantation of the fertilized egg, if occurs.
medicine, at this phase corpus luteum starts to produce progesterone
that triggers the softening of endometrial lining for fertilized egg
IV. Phase IV- menstruation phrase (about 3-5 days)
there is no conception occurred, the yang drops that cause the shedding
of the uterus lining. The menstrual discharge is bright red and profuse
and only last between 3 - 5 days ( spotting does not count).
continue to provide more information that contributes to the causes of
abnormal menstrual cycle, including prolonged and shortened phases in
each phrase and how you can treat them. The aim of this series is to
provide the information of how you can modify your menstrual cycle for
easy conception. I believe, it is helpful for women diagnosed with the
unexplained causes of infertility or any women who would like to stop
symptoms of menstruation disorders.
