Chinese Herbal and Acupuncture Treatment Protocols for Miscarriages - Formulas, Protocols, TCM Diagnoses

The Chinese Medicine treatment of miscarriages generally involves arriving at the appropriate TCM diagnosis or pattern. This pattern within the individual is what treatment is based on not the general condition (see treating the cause and not the symptoms).

A miscarriage occurs when a woman loses a fetus before the 20th week of pregnancy. This can be caused by a problem with the uterus or cervix; a chromosomal abnormality in the fetus due to a problem with the egg or sperm; a condition called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, which causes the overproduction of the hormone androgen that impedes egg development; and other factors. Signs that a woman has had a miscarriage include vaginal bleeding, abdominal cramps, and passing tissue from the vagina.
