Chinese herbal medicine for female infertility: An updated meta-analysis
A study looking at over 4000 women found that patients undergoing treatment for fertility with a trained Chinese Medicine Practitioner were 1.74 times more likely to achieve pregnancy than those undergoing treatment with western medicine alone. The study included women with PCOS, endometriosis, anovulation, fallopian tube blockage, or unexplained infertility. Mean pregnancy rates in the Chinese Herbal Medicine group were 60% compared with 33% in the Western Medicine group.
The study noted that the benefits of Chinese herbal medicine treatment were found when patients were treated using traditional diagnostic methods.
