Acupuncture for PCOS

Acupuncture can be a very effective method to enhance reproductive function in women with PCOS. It can be used alone to enhance female reproductive function; it can also be used in tandem with other therapies.

Acupuncture is a viable treatment for PCOS because it can positively affect the ovaries, the HPO axis as well as the autonomic nervous system.

By reducing high MSNA, acupuncture can regulate ovulation and increase menstrual frequency.

And as mentioned earlier, acupuncture can be used as an adjunct to first or second line interventions like Clomid or Gonadotropins, mainly to reduce bearable side-effects headaches or abdominal distension, or more serious conditions like ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS).
