Regular acupuncture treatments may be effective in reducing the symptoms of dysmenorrhea, and may assist to reduce the stress associated with hormonal imbalances.
Prior to, during and post-menopause there are many changes going on in a woman's body as the hormone system adjusts. The main hormones associated with female fertility, estrogen and progesterone, both start to reduce at this stage and the fluctuated levels of these hormones can create a cascade of effects including - hot flushes and nights sweats; reduced muscle tone; weight gain; urinary incontinence; mood swings as well as changes in sexual desire and performance. Each woman will experience these changes differently.
