Menstrual Problems

Acupuncture can be an effective treatment for regulating the menstrual cycle.

Acupuncture treatment can have an effect on reducing menstrual pain, easing PMT, and regulating periods.  Acupuncture treatment would involve asking about your medical history and menstrual cycle in detail to diagnose the underlying cause of the problem. 

In February 2010, a systematic review of studies concluded that for period pain “compared with pharmacological treatment or herbal medicine - acupuncture was associated with a significant reduction in pain”.  Read more on the review published in Pulse here.
