What Chinese Medicine Can Treat For Females

Endometriosis

Endometriosis is when the kind of tissue that normally lines the uterus grows somewhere else. It can grow on the ovaries, behind the uterus, on the bowels, or on the bladder. Rarely, it grows in other parts of the body.This “misplaced” tissue can cause pain, infertility, and very heavy periods. The pain is usually in the abdomen, lower back, or pelvic areas. Some women have no symptoms at all, and having trouble getting pregnant may be the first sign they have endometriosis.​

Infertility 

Getting pregnant and carrying a pregnancy to term are actually very complicated processes. Many things can go wrong during these processes to lead to infertility. The following list includes some common causes of infertility in females

  • Failure to ovulate

  • Irregular menstruations

  • Infection

  • Failure of eggs to mature

  • Endometriosis 

  • Poly cyst ovarian syndrome 

  • Uterine fibroid

  • Autoimmune disorders

Interstitial Cystitis

Interstitial cystitis (IC) is a chronic bladder condition resulting in recurring discomfort or pain in the bladder or surrounding pelvic region. People with IC usually have inflamed or irritated bladder walls that can cause scarring and stiffening of the bladder. IC can affect anyone; however, it is more common in women than men. Some people have some or none of the following symptoms:

  • Abdominal or pelvic mild discomfort.

  • Frequent urination.

  • A feeling of urgency to urinate.

  • Feeling of abdominal or pelvic pressure.

  • Tenderness.

  • Intense pain in the bladder or pelvic region.

  • Severe lower abdominal pain that intensifies as the urinary bladder fills or empties.

Menopause

Menopause simply means that the body’s reproductive system is no longer in the phase where it releases eggs for fertilization or builds a home for a potential fetus in the uterine wall. The ovaries stop releasing eggs during menopause, so there is no reason for the uterus to collect or shed the lining of blood and mucous that results in menstrual flow.The average age of onset for menopause is 51, but some women go through the change much earlier or later. Menopause can also be forced by a procedure known as a hysterectomy, in which the entire uterus is removed for medical purposes. Menopause can also be induced through the use of hormones. Many perimenopausal and post-menopausal women choose to take hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which balances out hormonal changes to prevent a significant difference in mood, hair growth, weight and libido. Some common symptoms of perimenopause and menopause included:

  • Hot flashes

  • Depression

  • Irregular menstruation

  • Insomnia

  • Mood changes

  • Weight gain

 

PMS

levels of estrogen and progesterone drop during the week before your period. And this can cause following symptoms:

  • Tension or anxiety

  • Depressed mood

  • Crying spells

  • Mood swings and irritability or anger

  • Appetite changes and food cravings

  • Trouble falling asleep (insomnia)

  • Social withdrawal

  • Poor concentration

  • Change in libido

  • Joint or muscle pain

  • Headache

  • Fatigue

  • Weight gain related to fluid retention

  • Abdominal bloating

  • Breast tenderness

  • Acne flare-ups

  • Constipation or diarrhea

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Polycystic ovary syndrome happens when a woman’s ovaries or adrenal glands produce more male hormones than normal. One result is that cysts (fluid-filled sacs) develop on the ovaries. Women who are obese are more likely to have PCOS. Women with PCOS are at increased risk of developing diabetes and heart disease. Symptoms may include

  • Infertility.

  • Pelvic pain.

  • Excess hair growth on the face, chest, stomach, thumbs, or toes.

  • Baldness or thinning hair.

  • Acne, oily skin, or dandruff.

  • Patches of thickened dark brown or black skin.

  • irregular periods or no periods at all

  • weight gain

  • thinning hair and hair loss from the head

Postpartum Depression

Postpartum depression occurs immediately or shortly after a woman gives birth. While it is normal for women to feel sad or even depressed after giving birth or experiencing a miscarriage, postpartum depression is severe and lasts for months. Mothers suffering from postpartum depression may have difficulty bonding to their newborn child and feel a sense of helplessness. This is common, but it is a serious issue that requires treatment.

 

 

Uterine fibroid 

  • Heavy or painful periods or bleeding between periods.

  • Feeling “full” in the lower abdomen.

  • Urinating often.

  • Pain during sex.

  • Lower back pain.

  • Reproductive problems, such as infertility, multiple miscarriages, or early labor.

Yeast Infection aka Vaginal Candidiasis 

Vaginal candidiasis, vaginal yeast infection affects up to 3 out of 4 women at some point in their lifetimes. Many women experience at least two episodes.

  • Itching and irritation in the vagina and vulva

  • A burning sensation, especially during intercourse or while urinating

  • Redness and swelling of the vulva

  • Vaginal pain and soreness

  • Vaginal rash

  • Thick, white, odor-free vaginal discharge with a cottage cheese appearance

  • Watery vaginal discharge
