PCOS or polycystic ovary syndrome is one of the leading and most common causes of female infertility. It is also one of the most frustrating female reproductive issues In the United States. In this country, there are around 5% to 10% of women suffering from this condition.

Becoming a mother is one of the most cherished dreams of a lot of women and there is nothing more frustrating and disappointing than to know that you may not be able to become a mother because of a reproductive condition such as PCOS. Researching about PCOS and knowing the available treatments for it can help address this condition and may eventually help turn your life around.

One patient of mine who was married with no children and who was diagnosed with PCOS at the age of 27 left her all stressed and depressed. She wanted to raise a family with at least one child but her condition has made her realize that her dream of becoming a mother may never come true. She dreaded the cost, the waiting lists and the indifferent medical staff that she needs to interact with if she decides to embark on a Western medicine type of treatment for her condition.

Western physicians are usually all too happy to depend on pharmaceutical drugs alone to assist women having problems becoming pregnant as these doctors are often oblivious to natural and alternative therapies for infertility; and worse they are not even aware of the emotional pain infertility brings to the sufferer. They often have no back-up plan or even do not know that there are available natural remedies that have been used to treat infertility around for thousands of years.

PCOS Treatment Using Chinese Herbs

Natural remedies to treat infertility have been around for millennia to aid women who are having a difficult time getting pregnant to conceive. Practitioners of Chinese medicine attribute PCOS to a problem in the kidneys. To treat this problem Chinese herbs such as Rehmannia and cinnamon are used.

Needless to say, there is much more to traditional Chinese medicine than simply the drinking of herbal tea or taking herbal supplementation. The infertile patient needs to talk to a licensed practitioner in order to address her condition in the best and most effective way.

But if you have decided to put your faith in pharmaceutical drugs, and in doctors who have a long waiting list, you begin to be aware that a pro-active approach to your condition which means using alternative therapies and natural remedies may be the most effective way in helping you conceive.

It is important to not let anyone or anything stand in your way. Multitudes of women just like you have already been diagnosed with infertility with a small chance of ever becoming pregnant according to their physicians. But if you do a little online research about infertility, you would realize that there are other alternative treatments of curing your infertility. Some of them have been used for thousands of years.
