The decline of ovarian reserve function refers to the decline of ovarian reproductive function and endocrine function, which is reflected by the decline of the quantity and quality of ovarian follicles. The occurrence of this disease directly leads to the decline of female fertility and the lack of sex hormones, and further can develop into premature ovarian failure. The effect of traditional Chinese medicine in the treatment of this disease is quite significant. We will make a brief introduction to the understanding and treatment of this disease in traditional Chinese medicine, so that our later research can be more specific and serve the majority of patients.
