Menstrual Disorders

The Chinese have been treating women with menstrual cycle irregularities for thousands of years. Their tried-and-true approach is an especially effective alternative to Western pharmaceuticals and hormone supplementation.

TCM is especially effective in treating:

  • Amenorrhea, or no periods
  • Oligomenorrhea, or irregular periods
  • Dysmenorrhea, or painful periods
  • Menorrhagia, or heavy periods
  • Metrorrhagia, or dysfunctional uterine bleeding

Treatment courses vary widely for menstrual disorders. Amenorrhea or PCOS patients can take as long as six months to regulate. Dysmennorhea or endometriosis patients can have exceptionally good treatment results within four visits. Often eight weekly acupuncture visits with herbs, diet and lifestyle recommendations is a good starting point. When reassessed at the end of this 8-week course and things have not significantly improved, a new treatment plan will be implemented or you may be referred to physician.
