    A. Post-menstrual phase
    Explanation
    During the post-menstrual phase, the body's blood and yin are relatively empty, indicating a deficiency. Additionally, the Penetrating and Directing vessels are depleted during this phase. Therefore, it is the best time to tonify yin and blood, as the body is in need of nourishment and replenishment.

    Correct Answer
    A. Mid-cycle phase
    Explanation
    During the mid-cycle phase, blood and yin gradually fill up in the Penetrating and Directing vessels. This is the time when ovulation occurs, which is the release of an egg from the ovary. It is also considered the best time to treat fertility because it is the most fertile period of a woman's menstrual cycle. The increase in blood and yin in the Penetrating and Directing vessels helps support the development and nourishment of the egg, increasing the chances of successful conception.
