Furthermore, excruciatingly painful periods can indicate a more serious underlying health condition, such as endometriosis or uterine fibroids.

Acupuncture and the Menstrual Cycle
When in your cycle should you get acupuncture?
|Phases of Menstruation||Effects of Acupuncture|
|Days 1-5: Menstruation||Treatments help reduce intense cramping, pain, migraines, agitation, mood swings, constipation, and other unpleasant menses-related symptoms.|
|Day 6: Pre-Ovulation||Aside from improving uterine and ovarian blood flow, acupuncture can also assist with egg maturation and endometrium lining development during this phase.|
|Ovulation||Some of our patients have experienced ovulation-related symptoms including abdominal cramps, bloating, nausea, and breast tenderness. Many have found significant relief within 2-3 months of starting treatments at Lim Acupuncture Clinic.|
|Post-Ovulation||Acupuncture during this phase depends on whether the patient has plans to achieve a pregnancy.
If pregnancy is your goal: Acupuncture treatments will focus on assisting with fertility and implantation.
If pregnancy is not your goal: Acupuncture treatments will focus on regulating body functions, minimizing PMS symptoms, and preparing the body for the next cycle.

Can acupuncture induce your period?
Typically, acupuncture treatments do not induce periods themselves. Acupuncture is known for reducing unpleasant symptoms and regulating cycles. In patients with abnormal or absent periods, acupuncture treatments can help reinstate healthy, regular cycles.
Can acupuncture delay your period?
While acupuncture remains effective for diminishing menstrual pain and regulating cycles, it has not been known to cause period skips or delays in patients.
Is acupuncture effective for endometriosis?
How many sessions of acupuncture do you need for endometriosis?
This often depends on the individual, their symptoms, and their unique medical history. Acupuncture sessions typically work best with multiple sessions of treatment and a consistent schedule. Many of our patients usually begin to notice a major difference after 1 to 2 months of treatment. Schedule an initial consultation if you have specific questions regarding your condition and find out how we can help.
Can acupuncture delay menopause?
While more scientific research needs to be conducted as to whether acupuncture can directly delay menopause, acupuncture is known to be effective at minimizing many of the unpleasant associated symptoms, such as hot flashes, hair loss, fatigue, and insomnia. Additionally, acupuncture has also been known to stabilize mood changes, memory, and mental focus in menopausal adults.
