ACUPUNCTURE MAY BE HELPFUL FOR PELVIC PAIN DUE TO STAGE 4 ENDOMETRIOSIS AND OVARIAN CYSTS WHICH IN TURN CAN BE BENEFICIAL FOR ACUPUNCTURE INFERTILITY.
There is a case study on the west coast recently where a woman that was 38 years old had a history of painful menstruation at the start of her menarche at the age of 13. At the age of 15 the patient tried birth control pills that were prescribed by her doctor, but still had pelvic pain most days along with severe menstrual pain.
By the age of 17 the patient stopped taking the birth control pills due to still continuing to have pelvic pain. For the next 20 years the patient suffered from tremendous pelvic pain, severe pms and menstrual pain, endometriosis, and ovarian cysts.
In November of 2012 the patient had a laparoscopy surgical procedure done for her endometriosis due to unbearable pelvic pain. The diagnosis of stage 4 endometriosis was given due to the massive amounts of adhesions she had.
According to John Hopkins Medicine, stage 4 is the most severe stage endometriosis. The stage of endometriosis is based on the location, amount, depth, and size of the endometrial implants. Specific criteria include:
- The extent of the spread of the implants
- The involvement of pelvic structures in the disease
- The extent of pelvic adhesions
- The blockage of the fallopian tubes
After the laparoscopy patient was put on 4 months of hormones, but she had extreme bad side effects from them. Patient continued to have pelvic pain and menstrual pain everyday after this procedure.
They found an acupuncturist with clinical experience and success in endometriosis. They started getting treatments with him in 9-16-13 and on 10-22-13 just a little over 1 month of treatments with this experienced doctor she had the best period of her life with almost no pelvic pain. This was a tremendous improvement in her health and it was without the use of drug medications or hormone therapy.

Acupuncture may be helpful for the above conditions and therefore be helpful as acupuncture for infertility.
