The treatment of dysmenorrhea by acupuncture.

Abstract

Forty-eight female patients suffering from dysmenorrhea in various degrees were treated by acupuncture. Seven standard acupuncture loci were selected. Acupuncture was given only 5 times to 44 of these patients. The results were analyzed after 6 to 12 months. Although the therapy was short, limited to only 7 points and uniform, satisfactory results were found in more than 80% of the cases.
