Acupuncture Increases Ovulation Frequency in Women With PCOS

In a recent Swedish study 32 women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) were given acupuncture in combination with low frequency electrical stimulation (‘electrocupuncture’). After 10-13 weeks of intervention, circulating levels of a variety of hormones (including estrone, estrone sulphate, estradiol, DHEA and testosterone) were found to have decreased in the acupuncture group and were significantly lower than in the control group.
