Ovulation

Ovulation

Ovulation is the transitional stage of a womans cycle, when she passes from her follicular stage or non fertile stage , into her fertile phase of her cycle, this is when the woman will experience an increase in her cervical secretion to the fertile stretchy type mucus that facilitates easy access by her husband or partners sperm through the oss of the cervix and up throught the uterus and into the fallopian tubes where fertilisation takes place. In some womens cycle they show all the signs that ovulation is about to take place, but then the dominant follicle in the ovary just doesn't receive the right amount of FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) to release the egg as it should in a normal cycle. In some cases this can happen every second or third cycle, but in a number of women that I see this can be happening every cycle, if this is the case Acupuncture and Chinese Hebal Medicine may be helpful in stimulating hormone production in the brain which can then reach sufficient levels each cycle to stimulate the follicle to release the egg normally.
