The Chinese herbal formula Wen Jing Tang with acupuncture can improve premature ovarian failure

From February 2018 to October 2019, 119 POI patients with deficiency-cold syndrome who met the selection criteria were randomly divided into the control group (n = 59) and the observation group (n = 60). The control group was treated with hormone replacement therapy, and the observation group was treated with Wenjing Decoction and Tiaobu Chongren acupuncture and moxibustion therapy on the basis of the control group. Both groups were treated continuously for 3 months. After treatment, the clinical efficacy of the two groups was compared, the Chinese medicine syndrome score, serum estradiol (E 2), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) and bilateral antral follicle count (AFC), mean ovarian volume, and endometrial thickness of the two groups before and after treatment were compared.

Result: The effective rate of the observation group (93.10%) was higher than that of the control group (77.59%) (P < 0.05). After treatment, the index scores of traditional Chinese medicine syndromes in two groups were lower than before (P < 0.05), and the observation group was lower than the control group (P < 0.05). The serum E 2 and AMH levels in the two groups increased, while FSH and LH levels decreased compared with before treatment, and the observation group improved significantly compared with the control group (P < 0.05). The bilateral AFC, mean ovarian volume, and endometrial thickness of the two groups increased compared with before treatment, and the observation group was higher than the control group (P < 0.05).

Conclusion: On the basis of hormone replacement therapy, the combination of Wenjing Decoction and Tiaobu Chongren acupuncture and moxibustion therapy is effective in treating POF patients with deficiency-cold syndrome, which can effectively regulate their serum sex hormone levels and promote the recovery of ovarian function.
