Acupuncture for Endometriosis / Pelvic Pain
How our reproductive acupuncture can free you from pain
Endometriosis – the most common cause of pelvic pain
Endometriosis is the most common cause of chronic pelvic pain. Other symptoms you may experience include pain during intercourse, unusual menstrual bleeding, bowel problems such as painful bloating, diarrhea. It may be hard to get pregnant.
Endometriosis affects roughly 1 in 10 women and girls in New Zealand. It develops when tissue lining the uterus (endometrium) grows in areas outside your uterus.
The problem is, even if you get all of the above symptoms, you are never certain of the cause. Unless you get a laparoscopic surgery. Sadly, it may take years to get a diagnosis.
Why consider acupuncture for endometriosis pain
American Society of Reproductive Medicine recommends acupuncture as an adjunctive treatment for an endometriosis pain. In two recent trials, acupuncture gave significant pain relief, also when compared to sham acupuncture.
And when, as a side effect, acupuncture improves your mood and your sleep. I’m certain you will handle these side-effects! Yes, you read it right. You are more likely to get beneficial, positive side-effects with acupuncture, and hardly ever unpleasant ones.
