Ovulation Tincture

These were originally designed for use during a stimulation cycle with IVF, for those patients with poor egg quality. Steve found however that they also work well for patients with scanty ovulation mucous, and those patients whose ovulation is not occuring at the right time.

The usual method of application is for the patient to take Dang Gui Plus Tincture during periods, and when the period stops, to take Ovulation Tincture for two weeks from the end of the period. Again, the usual dose is 3 droppers-full in water AM & PM.

For patients with amenorrhea, Steve will first address the patient’s constitutional difficulty (eg, blood deficiency, or Kidney yin deficiency, or Spleen qi deficiency, and so on) and then, once the patient is beginning to show even faint signs of a cycle (such as increased vaginal secretions, or breast swelling, or moods) he will then go on to set up an “artificial cycle” prescribing Dang Gui Plus Tincture for two weeks and then Ovulation Tincture for the next two weeks. He tries to make this match the patient’s natural cycle when possible. For example, if there are signs of ovulation such as increased mucous or abdominal twinges on one side, he will suggest the patient take the Dang Gui Plus Tincture after the patient feels these indications of ovulation (because a period follows ovulation) and then have them take the Ovulation Tincture (since ovulation follows the period).

If the amenorrhea is stubborn and there are simply no signs of a cycle at all, Steve will in this case still use this method but will instruct the patient to be on the lookout for signs of a cycle and try to work in with those signs when they arise.
