ABC acupuncture: E is for Endometriosis

ABC Acupuncture: E is for Endometriosis

1 in 10 women of reproductive age in the UK suffer from endometriosis; it is the second most common gynecological condition in the UK.

Normally the cells inside the womb, build up, break down and bleed. They exit the body as a period.

Endometriosis is where tissue that behaves like the lining of the womb is found in other parts of the body, such as fallopian tubes or ovaries. They build up, break down and bleed. However they have no exit out of the body. This causes inflammation, pain and formation of scar tissue.

It is a long term painful condition. Some women suffer with it badly, whereas others have less noticeable symptoms. Some symptoms include pelvic pain, period pain, pain during or after sex, pain when going to the loo (number one or two), feeling sick, constipation, diarrhoea or blood in pee during period and difficulty getting pregnant. This can result in depression.

Currently the treatments include painkillers, hormone medications and contraceptives or surgery.

How can acupuncture help
1) Pain relief
2) Reduce inflammation
3) Can help with infertility
4) Regulate menstruation

Researchers have found acupuncture is more effective than hormone drug therapy for treating endometriosis.
