Sterility refers to inability to conceive three years after marriage with normal sexual life and without contraception, or inability to conceive for two years after giving birth to a baby or after abortion without contraception. It is usually caused by dysfunction of ovary secretion and ovum formation or deformity of genital organs. TCM believes that sterility is caused by kidney asthenia and dysfunction of the thoroughfare and conception vessels due to asthenia of kidney essence, liver depression and qi stagnation, blockage of the uterus by phlegm and dampness as well as blood stasis and cold coagulation.
