A Discussion on the Constitution Factors of Thin Endometrium Based on the Theory of Qi and Blood


Theory of qi and blood
Thin endometrium




Thin endometrium has been proven to be a key contributing factor leading to infertility and poor pregnancy outcomes. Increasing the thickness and capacity of thin endometrium seems to be one of the challenging issues in reproductive medicine. The states of qi and blood are closely related to uterine blood circulation. Constitution is regarded as an important basis for determining the incidence as well as distinguishing, preventing, and treating diseases in traditional Chinese medicine. Based on the theory of qi and blood, this paper discusses the constitution factors of thin endometrium and puts forward the prospect of using big data tools to investigate the correlation between qi-blood imbalance constitution and the incidence of thin endometrium, so as to explore new approaches for the prevention and treatment of thin endometrium by regulating qi and blood as well as improving the constitution condition.
