Endometriosis & Acupuncture
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are very effective treatments to regulate the menstrual cycle and treat both the underlying causes and symptoms of endometriosis.
Endometriosis is defined by the presence of endometrial tissue somewhere in the pelvic cavity but outside the uterus. This can show in the presence of small areas of tiny spots or large lumps, which can affect the organs of the pelvis.
Common symptoms are painful periods, heavy bleeding, pain during intercourse, spotting before periods, and infertility. If the endometriosis is located in places such as fallopian tubes or ovaries, this can affect the fertility and ability to conceive. There are many mechanisms in which endometriosis may affect your fertility.
Our primary focus of treatment through the use of Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine is two-fold:
- Decrease the symptoms, such as painful and heavy menstruation.
- Regulate the menstrual cycle, optimizing health and fertility.
