Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a condition where ovarian function is disrupted leading to irregular menstrual cycles, infertility and many other issues.

In Western medicine, there are 3 major features of PCOS; irregular periods, excess androgen, and polycystic ovaries.
Some of the signs and symptoms include:

  • Irregular menstrual cycle

  • Acne

  • Weight gain - especially belly fat

  • Insulin resistance

  • Excess facial hair/body hair

  • Enlarged ovaries.

In Chinese medicine PCOS arises when Qi in the meridians that drive menstruation, conception and pregnancy become blocked or stagnant. These blockages can occur for many reasons, and left unchecked these issues manifest resulting in signs and symptoms. 

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine works to

  • Restore hormonal balance

  • Improve and regulate metabolism

  • Support and improve ovarian function

  • Emotional support

  • Underlying root cause

Each woman is unique and acupuncture is tailored to each woman's specific set of symptoms and works to treat the root cause of her PCOS.
