Having endometriosis? Acupuncture can help

Endometriosis is a condition in which endometrial cells grow outside of uterus. These misplaced tissues are mostly found on the ovaries and fallopian tubes and in the pelvic cavity etc. These cells respond to the ovaries hormonal cycles each month, but are inseparable from the tissues, which cause scarring and adhesions. Endometriosis does not always produce symptoms. When it does, it mainly causes pain, irregular menstrual bleeding and infertility. Many women experience period pain, intercourse pain and pelvic pain which is unrelated to menstruation and intercourse. Irregular menstruation, excessive bleeding and clot are common. About 50% infertile women suffer from endometriosis. There are different treatments available, such as pain relief, hormonal treatments and surgery etc. Some women may benefit from alternative medical treatments. Acupuncture reduces pain by producing endorphins. Acupuncture is proven an effective complementary management for endometriosis in patients with infertility. Acupuncture improves local circulation, balances hormonal levels, reduces inflammation and improves immune function. Recent studies showed that the ectopic tissues were reduced and the invasion of ectopic tissue to extracellular matrix was inhibited. The symptoms such as period pain, irregular menstruation and chronic pelvic pain in endometriosis were significantly improved.
