Menstrual Disorders - Irregular Menstruation - Treatments in Traditional Chinese Medicine Perspective

Irregular menstruation or period is defined as condition in which a woman is experience abnormal variation of length of the menstrual cycle. While the normal menstrual cycle is 28-35 days, women who are experience with irregular menstrual cycle can have a length variation between 8 and 20 days or shorter than 21 days, or longer than 36 days.
C. Traditional Chinese medicine
1. Angelica root
Chinese Angelica is a sturdy perennial plant that is native to China and Japan. It has been used for over 5000 years in traditional Chinese medicine in treating an overall tonic for the reproductive system as well as balancing hormones and it is also used to relieve the discomforts of premenstrual syndrome, dysmenorrhea, irregular menstruation and amenorrhagia. It is well known as female ginseng.

2. Radix Notoginseng
Also known as tian san qi or tien chi ginseng. It has been used in China for centuries in treating excessive bleeding in irregular menstruation. It is widely used in Asia for angina to help lower cholesterol and triglycerides, and to expand coronary arteries in order to promote blood circulation and prevent blood clots thereby helping to control excessive menstrual bleeding or menorrhagia. It also is a powerful antioxidant that helps to reduce inflammation thus reducing pain caused by menstruation disorders.

3. Licorice
Licorice has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to detoxify and to enhance or balance the effects of other herbs in herbal formula as well as promote estrogenic activity. In a study of "Estrogen-like activity of licorice root constituents: glabridin and glabrene, in vascular tissues in vitro and in vivo". by Somjen D, Knoll E, Vaya J, Stern N, Tamir S., researchers concluded that glb behaved differently than E2 or gla, but similarly to raloxifene, being a partial agonist/antagonist of E2. Glabridin, on the other hand, demonstrated only estrogenic activity. Therefore, we suggest the use of glb with or without E2 as a new agent for modulation of vascular injury and atherogenesis for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases in post-menopausal women.

4. Motherwort
Motherwort is a herbaceous perennial plant in the mint family, It has been used in trdiational Chinese medicine in tonifying the uterus and preventing the uterus against infection. Leonurine, a compound in the herb has an effect in promoting uterine contractions. As an emmenagogue, it enhance blood flow.

5. Skullcap
Skullcap is a genus of flowering plants in the mint family, Lamiaceae. It has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to tonify the heart, treat insomnia and enhance immune system. It is said that a infusion of the plant can be used to promote menstruation. According to the article Skullcap - Botanical and Common Names posted in Innvista, the author indicated that An infusion of the fresh aerial parts (if possible) is used to soothe nervous exhaustion, excitability, overanxiety, and premenstrual tension.
