Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs are Effective Treatments for Painful Periods and Regulation of The Menstrual Cycle
Pain associated with menstruation can occur before, during or after menstruation. Painful menstruation affects many women with symptoms of crampy lower abdominal pain, sharp pain that comes and goes, aching pain, breast tenderness, and back pain. Stress and anxiety, as well as other conditions such as premenstrual syndrome (PMS), endometriosis, fibroids, ovarian cysts, and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), can lead to painful menstruation.
Taking a warm bath, applying a heating pad, and drinking warm beverages may relieve mild symptoms, but pain often persists. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs have been effective for over a thousand years treating painful periods and regulating the menstrual cycle.
Painful Menstruation May Be Caused By:
- Emotional Stress
- Overexposure to cold or damp environment
- Chronic Illness
- Excessive Sexual Activity
