Late menstrual disease is a condition in which menstruation is delayed for more than 7 days and occurs in two consecutive cycles, and in severe cases, menstruation is even delayed for 3 to 5 months. It is a very common physiological condition among contemporary women, and its incidence has been increasing in recent years due to the increased pressure of life and the irregular rhythm of life. It has a great impact on women's reproduction. We searched the relevant entries through China Knowledge Network and collected relevant literature on the treatment of late menstruation, and initially summarized the TCM classification of late menstruation for diagnosis and treatment, which can be divided into kidney-yang deficiency, kidney-deficiency-liver-depression, liver-kidney-yin deficiency, spleen-kidney deficiency, qi-blood deficiency, and kidney-deficiency-phlegm-stasis, and several commonly used representative prescriptions are proposed for these types of evidence to discuss. We also introduce other external treatments such as acupuncture, moxibustion, ear acupuncture, buried thread and other external treatments. We conclude that TCM is unique and effective in regulating menstruation and improving health, and that it is safe and effective in treating late menstruation.
