During the second seven years, this Qi will lead the girls growing and support the sexual organ’s development. The menstrual cycle starts from the second seven years, also called adolescent.
A woman’s kidney Qi will achieve its peak at the fifth seven years, around age thirty five. There for, a woman’s flourish period is between age 14 and 35. During this period, the chance of pregnancy is the highest in a woman’s life. According to TCM, to strengthen the liver is the key to get healthy kidney Qi and blood which is the most important foundation of conceiving a healthy and intelligent baby.
The seventh seven years is the time that menstrual cycle stops for a woman, a few may stop in the early of the eighth seven years. The eventually declining kidney Qi leads to exhaustion then extinguishing reproductive ability. Menopause represents the ending of menstrual. TCM calls the various symptoms that some women experience simply “menstrual cycle ending symptoms.”
