OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of Yangjing Decoction (YJD, a Chinese prescription of replenishing Kidney essence) in promoting follicular growth and its influence on blood supply of ovary and uterus. METHODS: Twenty-two cases with secondary amenorrhea and 4 cases of infertility with infrequent menstruation caused by follicle maldevelopment were treated with YJD. The blood supply of ovary and uterus in 7 cases was measured by colour Doppler before and after treatment. RESULTS: Of the 116 therapeutic cycles in 26 cases, there were 69 menstrual cycles (59.48%), 37 follicular maturation cycles (31.90%), 21 ovulation cycles (18.10%), and the follicular maturation rate was 84.62%, The disturbance in blood supply of ovary and uterus was improved remarkably along with follicular development by YJD in 7 cases. CONCLUSION: YJD could improve follicular development and blood supply of ovary and uterus.
