reg·u·la·tion

(reg'yū-lā'shŭn),
1. An epigentic process whereby the developmental fates of rates of cell development of embryonic subsystems may change during embryonic development, thereby compensating for defects and permitting normal development of the embryo as a whole. The human embryo is termed regulatory because its tissues and organs are not determined but become so according to the relationship of the different parts to each other.
2. In experimental embryology, the power of a pregastrula embryo to continue approximately normal development after a part or parts have been manipulated or destroyed.
[L. regula, a rule]

regulation

In many animals regulation after damage is possible only before fertilization but in others it may take place in later development.
  2. the limitation of a population over a period of time by natural factors such as DENSITY DEPENDENT FACTORS.

Patient discussion about regulation

Q. My hormones are always out of wake. How can I regulate my periods? I like to try with herbs. I am 32 years old and I have 2 children. After my second delivery I had irregular periods. I have been on BC most of my life to regulate my periods but I don't like them. And I feel sick. My physician said that my thyroid is low but within normal range. My hormones are always out of wake. How can I regulate my periods? I like to try with herbs.

A. My dear your decision is good. There is nothing to feel sick; most of the women are having this problem. My daughter had the same problem like you; we tried so many meds but in vain. At last we tried with herbal meds really it is amazing, after that she had regular period. Now she is happy. I suggest you to try with herbal meds. Good Luck.
