Luteal Phase Defect
Luteal Phase Defect & Acupuncture
Luteal phase defect (LPD) is a very common condition that affects fertility and the ability to maintain a pregnancy. This condition is characterized by failure of the uterine lining to be in the right phase at the right time needed for implantation. Luteal phase defect can disrupt the cycle in several places.
Causes of luteal phase defect include:
- Poor follicle production
- Premature demise of corpus luteum
- Failure of the uterine lining to respond to normal levels of progesterone.
Women with LPD who monitor the time of ovulation often notice that their cycle begins sooner than normal. If LPD is suspected, blood tests can help confirm inadequate h production as well as other tests to measure follicle maturity, and uterine lining.
Luteal Phase Defect is very responsive to Acupuncture & Chinese herbal treatments. Once the specific cause is determined a safe, drug-free, effective treatment is formed to regulate the menstrual cycle.
