Cold feeling in vagina according to Chinese Medicine

Home > Symptoms list > Cold feeling in vagina

Cold feeling in vagina can be the consequence of several so-called “patterns of disharmony” in Chinese Medicine.

Chinese Medicine sees the body as a system, not a sum of isolated parts. A "pattern" is when the system's harmony is disrupted, leading to symptoms or signs that something is wrong (like cold feeling in vagina here). It is similar to the concept of disease in Western Medicine but not quite: a Western disease can often be explained by several Chinese patterns and vice-versa.

A pattern often manifests itself in a combination of symptoms that, at first glance, do not seem necessarily related to each others. For instance here cold feeling in vagina is often associated with painful period, cold in the lower abdomen and infertility in the pattern “Dampness and Phlegm in the Uterus”.

Once identified, patterns are treated using medicinal herbs, acupuncture, and other therapies. In the case of cold feeling in vagina we’ve identified that a herbal formula called Wen Jing Tang can help treat the patterns behind the symptom.
