Much has been written and discussed about egg quality, HPO axis, maternal age and the role of acupuncture at implantation. However endometrial receptivity is a topic less discussed and very relevant in fertility treatments. What is this endometrium in Chinese thought? How do we think about and treat a thin endometrial lining? An uneven lining? Ashermans syndrome? What is the effect of certain fertility drugs on the endometrium? How do we understand the actions of blood thinners? 

We will answer these questions with our Chinese diagnostic tools and learn relevant herbal and acupuncture protocols.
