Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are two of the most effective ways to treat gynecological disorders. Some of the more common gynecological disorders treated with acupuncture include endometriosis, infertility, polycycstic ovarian syndrome, dysmenorrhea, abnormal uterine bleeding, menopausal syndrome, uterine fibroids, chronic pelvic inflammation, vaginitis, and cervicitis. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can treat menstrual issues, pregnancy and fertility, and menopause symptoms. Menstruation should be painless with very little pre and post menstruation discomfort. Acupuncture causes blood vessels to dialate, which improve uterine and ovarian blood circulation to reduce menstrual pain and cramping. Acupuncture balances the hormonal connection between the brain and ovaries to regulate the period. Once hormones are balanced, the body will function properly, ovulation will be restored, and the menses will follow suit on a regular interval.
Many women experience uncomfortable and even debilitating symptoms during menopause. If you are experiencing tiredness, low back pain, incontinence, irritability, hot flashes, aversion to cold, insomnia, and night sweats during menopause you are not alone. Many of these symptoms can be addressed using acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Recent studies have unveiled that acupuncture is an effective way to treat hot flashes, which can greatly impact sleep as well.
