Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is the most common female hormone disorder. It can cause irregular periods, infertility and excessive hair growth. PCOS increases the risk of developing diabetes and hypertension (high blood pressure).

Though there is little clinical research on the use of acupuncture in PCOS, there is good reason to believe that acupuncture could be a useful support to help induce
ovulation, and may also relive other symptoms without causing the common side-effects of orthodox medication. It is likely that acupuncture can exert long-lasting beneficial effects on the hormone imbalance causing PCOS and on ovulation.
