Luteal Phase Defect

Luteal Phase Defect, a short 2nd half of the cycle, responds extremely well to Traditional Chinese Medicine.   Acupuncture and herbs can affect hormones and we use BBT charting to make sure we are lengthening the luteal phase.  Western medicine often prescribes Progesterone to extend the luteal phase, but studies show this does not dramatically increase pregnancy rates.  If we can regulate the luteal phase naturally, we find pregnancy and full term delivery is a natural outcome.
