Acupuncture Effective for Severe Menstrual Cramps

 

Severe menstrual cramps, otherwise known as primary dysmenorrhea, is one of the most common gynecological complaints. It can affect as many as half of young women.

A recent study in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology might have an answer for this painful disorder in the form of acupuncture treatments. A group of Korean researchers looked at 27 studies done on acupuncture for dysmenorrhea, which involved a total of 3,000 women.

By comparing findings, they determined “promising evidence” for the use of acupuncture to treat dysmenorrhea, as compared to either herbal or pharmacological medicine.
