Acupuncture Shown to Regulate Hormones and Boost Fertility for PCOS
A review of current research has found Acupuncture to be effective for improving both IVF and natural fertility for women with PCOS. It found that Acupuncture benefited by balancing hormones, which in turn helped regulate the menstrual cycle, BBT, improve ovulation and thus improved pregnancy rates.
PCOS is a condition whereby follicles do not develop properly and form cysts on the ovaries. These cysts release excess hormones which upset the body’s delicate balance in regards to ovulation and menstruation. Some women with PCOS can also suffer other issues such as weight gain and facial hair. Over the years in my clinic I have seen a large increase in PCOS women who are in fact quite thin and not showing any of the secondary symptoms traditionally associated with PCOS.
