Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM) may hold answers for the management of infertility and pregnancy rates.

A recent meta analysis of studies investigating the link between Traditional Chinese Medicine and infertility found that women utilizing CHM therapy over a four-month period had a 3.5 greater likelihood of achieving pregnancy than did women using traditional Western medical treatment alone.

The authors conclude that assessing the quality of the menstrual cycle, a key component of TCM diagnosis, plays an essential role in female infertility treatment.
