Bilateral Polycystic Ovarian Disease with Infertility

Print

Mrs. Anita Shora, aged 37 years, came to us with history of amenorrhoea ( no menses) since December 2000. Her ultrasound showed her to be having polycystic ovaries and she was put on hormone therapy. Even with hormone treatment, she was not getting regular menses, and the bleeding used be very scanty. Acupuncture treatment was started on 21-8-2001 . Initially patient was treated daily for first 4 months, during which time, her cycles became normal and all hormone therapy was stopped. Thereafter, she was given acupuncture only for 7 days in a month, prior to onset of menstrual cycle. This process continued for about 6 months. In the month of april 2002, she missed her cycles. A pregnancy test was done and it came positive. An ultrasound revealed a normal growing foetus. Acupuncture thus helped this lady recovery from her problem of hormonal imbalance and then conceive a child.
