You’re probably wondering, why you need to regulate your menstrual cycle if you’re trying to conceive. So before I share about the three TCM fertility herbs for your menstrual phase that can help regulate your menstrual cycle, it’s important to understand why you need a regular menstrual cycle in the first place!

So here’s the thing, the woman’s reproductive system is a bio-feedback system. That simply means that, in order to ovulate regularly, you need to have a regular menstrual cycle and vice versa. So if you have an irregular menstrual cycle, you probably aren’t ovulating regularly, (or at all Sis!) Not only that, you might not even be having a real period when you do bleed. 

I know, that’s probably not what you are expecting to hear. But the reality is that an irregular menstrual cycle, or any phase of the cycle is a sign that your reproductive system is trying to send a message to you to tune things up. And that’s where fertility herbs, or in this case TCM herbs can be of great service.

I’ll tell you what those herbs that can assist you during your menstrual phase are in just a bit, but next, let’s explore how herbs are able regulate your cycle, because at one point, even I was boggled by this question.


Alright so in the simplest way, without making this blog any longer than it has to me, fertility herbs can act like hormones that connect with tiny receptors on your reproductive organs and tissues. For example, phytoestrogens bind to estrogen receptors on your womb and can stimulate certain actions in your body, similar to how hormones can. In other words, herbs can balance or regulate your hormones. 


Lastly, because I know, you’re also likely wondering, well what are fertility herbs? A fertility herb is simply a group of herbs that have an effect on your reproductive system, often because they can act as hormones, but sometimes, because they can increase blood flow to the reproductive organs, which brings us closer to the three herbs to regulate your menstrual phase that this blog is about.


Just to give you a real life example of how irregular cycles can affect your fertility and how fertility herbs can support you, take PCOS or low egg quality for example. 

Not getting your period is common for women with PCOS. What’s also common in women with PCOS, is not ovulating regularly, or anovulation. 

Likewise women with low egg quality may experience pcos-like symptoms, like not ovulating  from time to time, yet having what seems like a ‘regular cycle’ when it may not be the case. Both  PCOS and poor egg quality often go hand in hand as many factors that contribute to PCOS also affect egg quality.

On the other hand, when you address the underlying issues that cause either PCOS or low egg quality, you can not only regulate your menstrual and ovulation phases, but can resolve these two conditions altogether.

Finally, if you have low egg quality, PCOS, anovulation, or amenorrhea, scant or missing periods and you’re trying to conceive, then it’s helpful to regulate your cycle. Once again, regulating your cycle so you are getting your periods, helps you to also ovulate so you can conceive.

As controversial as it may seem, getting your period is important if you want to conceive naturally because your body produces hormones during your periods that help trigger ovulation to later occur. Likely ovulating regularly produces hormones that will later promote menstrual periods. And getting your periods, even if you are trying to conceive is a good sign that your body is functioning as it should.

Regulating your menstrual phase of your cycle so you are getting your period if you have low egg quality, PCOS, amenorrhea, scant or missing periods is one step that can help you conceive naturally.
