During pregnancy, prolonged inability to conceive a child is a very painful moment for every woman. Their task has become birth of children, but they always cannot conceive. What's happening? Maybe it's your corpus luteum. It's caused by underfunction. Next, editor will explain some of facts about corpus luteum underfunction.Why is luteal phase deficiency dangerous?
Because corpus luteum cannot shrink or completely degenerate on schedule, a small amount of progesterone is constantly secreted, resulting in endometrium not being shed at usual time. The premenstrual endometrium is still at an early stage of secretion, secretion response is poor, and glands are slightly curved, making it difficult for women to conceive and causing infertility.
2. Menstrual irregularities
Some patients with luteal insufficiency experience menstrual irregularities such as shortened menstrual cycles, menorrhagia, frequent periods, and lengthening of menstrual cycle (9-10 days or even longer), which makes women unhappy.
3. Habitual abortion
Because luteal phase deficiency cannot produce enough progesterone, patients with luteal phase deficiency find it difficult to maintain a pregnancy even after a normal pregnancy, leading to miscarriage and recurrent abortion.How to improve corpus luteum insufficiency?
1. Supplemental Progesterone
Appropriate progesterone supplementation can improve luteal deficiency. Patients should choose a regular hospital to ask doctor to prescribe drug rather than buy it at will.
2. Medical treatment
For patients with corpus luteum insufficiency, you can take medicine for faster results. For example, if there is too much prolactin in body, resulting in a corpus luteum deficiency, you can take Western prolactin-lowering medications. The effect of medicine varies from person to person, but there will be some side effects, so follow your doctor's advice to choose right medicine and dosage.
3. Diet food
Soybeans are high in isoflavones, especially estrogen in black beans, so women with luteal deficiency can include black beans in their daily diet, which supplement estrogen and improve luteal function.
The above are some of harms and treatments for luteal phase deficiency. I hope this can help everyone. If you have infertility due to luteal deficiency, you should go to a regular hospital in time to treat your own child.
