Acupuncture for PCOS

A review of the literature by researchers at the University of South Wales, Australia and published in Gynecological Endocrinology this year concluded that “acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment” for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Even though higher quality studies are needed, it appears that acupuncture may help PCOS in a number of ways, such as by increasing blood flow to the ovaries, reducing the number of ovarian cysts, and assisting in weight loss.
