Most women will have missed or irregular period at one point or another — some with anticipation of a pregnancy, others because of anxiety or tension. At the clinic, we see women who menstruate like clockwork, while others report never having had a regular period.

When we are under stress, regardless of the source (danger, personal relationships, work, environment) our adrenal glands are designed to secrete the hormone cortisol. Cortisol has a direct impact on the sex hormones estrogen, progesterone, and DHEA. Eating disorders, dieting, drug use, and reliance on stimulants like caffeine and alcohol are also interpreted by the body as kinds of stress. Poor nutrition seems to physically change the proteins in the brain so they can no longer send the proper signals for normal ovulation.

Acupuncture can help balance the menstrual cycle, regulate the menstrual flow and ease pain.  It may also help with symptoms associated with PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome), for example, irritability, headaches, bloating, breast tenderness, emotional sensitivity and depression.
