Alterations of the menstrual period and acupuncture
Acupuncture can help in the regulation an irregular menstrual cycle, in reducing pain (dysmenorrhea) in the case of a functional problem, and can solve cases of prolonged absence of the cycle (stress induced amenorrhea, after pill treatment etc.).
Many women live their whole life along with an irregular cycle without that being a cause of problems to them whatsoever; while others have very frequent or very sparse cycles, very heavy, like a hemorrhage, or very scarce and very painful, or with spotting that can last for 10-15 days a month and compromise their quality of life.
Physiologically menstruation appears every 28 days (plus or minus 2), lasts about 4-5 days, has a bright red color, without clots. The onset is abrupt, without spotting and the symptoms are almost absent or only mild.
If you suffer from premenstrual syndrome or disorders related to irregular or painful menstrual cycle do contact me (my medical practice is in Firenze).
