Amenorrhea refers to the absence of menstruation in a woman of reproductive age. Amenorrhea occurs naturally during pregnancy and breastfeeding. In these cases, the symptom does not result from a problem. At any other time, though, amenorrhea is not normal. There are many possible causes of a woman failing to menstruate. Primary causes include developmental problems or delays. Secondary causes include hormonal disturbances, intrauterine scarring, anxiety, stress, high athletic performance, and low or high body weight.
Acupuncture treats the cause of these symptoms: either by reducing stress, assisting in weight loss or gain, improving the quality of the uterine lining, assisting in follicle formation, or regulating hormones. I begin with a complete history and analysis and move on to relaxing and gentle acupuncture treatments. A woman’s reproductive system is extremely important to her overall emotional and physical well-being. Take excellent care that it functions optimally.
