This study reveals that even sub-clinical issues such as hypothyroidism can lead to difficulty getting pregnant as well as a higher rate of miscarriages. It also states that the quality of eggs, rather then the quantity retrieved, is more important for positive outcomes. This reflects the view of Traditional Chinese Medicine which works to improve the potential multitude of sub-clinical imbalances that can exist and coexist in the “infertile” patient. By using TCM, and other natural means, the body’s healing intelligence corrects these imbalances on its own. Hence quality is fostered rather than quantity forced.
