Chinese Medicine is rapidly gaining popularity in the West as an effective remedy for a wide range of gynaecological complaints. Recent studies have shown that Chinese Medicine is very effective in increasing the likelihood of a full term pregnancy (especially when combined with IVF).
Ideally the menstrual cycle should be pain free – emotionally and physically, there should be no cramping and no need for pain killers. A painful period may indicate endometriosis, a condition where the endometrium is not shedding properly and this can impact on fertility (causing miscarriages and difficulty falling pregnant). Regardless of whether you want to conceive, you should not have to put up with period pain, and having to schedule time off from work or social duties to deal with the pain.
