Clinical Use

Based on our literature research, miscarriage is the most common (over 40%) clinical indication of Chinese herbal medicines for pregnancy. The second common indication is infertility, the third is therapeutic abortion. Chinese medicines for other conditions, such as immunological disorders, hypertensive disorders, infection, fetal growth restriction, preterm labor, postdate, gestational diabetes mellitus, puerperium, and others, are less common (less than 10%).
