It wasn't until I started studying acupuncture that I realised that debilitating painful periods were not normal.
In a 2023 study of acupuncture for endometriosis-associated pain they found
"Acupuncture is an effective and safe method of relieving dysmenorrhea, shortening the pain duration, and improving wellbeing and quality of life in women with endometriosis-associated pain"

Acupuncture for PCOS.
To read about acupuncture for polycystic ovarian syndrome click here.
"combining acupuncture with other medicines can effectively improve:
the clinical pregnancy rate
reduce luteinizing hormone/follicle-stimulating hormone ratio,
homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance,
and body mass index.
Further, when compared with no intervention, acupuncture had a better effect in promoting the recovery of the menstrual cycle. Acupuncture was reported to cause no adverse events or some adverse events without serious harm"
Acupuncture for PMS or PMDD.
In the same way, I didn't realize about painful periods the same is said for excessive premenstrual syndromes such as anger, depression, and bloating.
For acupuncture for premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), you can read my blog post here where I talk about the dissertation I did on this debilitating condition.
If you are struggling with heavy periods; worried about leaking or changing your sanitary wear every 1-2 hours then this is not normal.
You can download my free resource around heavy periods here.
Acupuncture for perimenopause.
Please read my blog here where I talk about acupuncture for menopause.
In acupuncture, this period of life is called Second Spring and we discuss how acupuncture can help, plus also lifestyle changes you can make to help yourself.
There is some amazing evidence for acupuncture supporting menopausal symptoms:
Hot flushes: in a 2015 study of 869 women they found "acupuncture improves hot flash frequency and severity, menopause-related symptoms, and quality of life (in the vasomotor domain) in women experiencing natural menopause."
