Period Within 6 Weeks After No Period For 7 Months – Polycystic Ovaries
I started acupuncture with Jane Ma after going 7 months without my period since coming off the pill. My temperature chart and blood tests indicated that I was still not producing sufficient hormones and I had a tendency towards low thyroid. An ultrasound also revealed polycystic ovaries. I knew that my hormones were completely out of balance. Although I was already seeing a naturopath, I thought acupuncture might help as well, as I had heard that it could be very beneficial for problems relating to female reproductive health.
After talking with Jane on the phone I felt confident she could help me, and I tried acupuncture for the first time. Within 6 weeks of treatment (including taking Chinese herbal medicine) I had my period. I was surprised at how quickly my body responded to the treatments, as I was prepared for it to take several months at least.
I have since had another regular cycle and my temperature chart continues to show improvement. I am really glad I found Jane. She is very perceptive and I find her to be more knowledgeable than most GPs in the area of women’s health, plus her treatments are very gentle and relaxing. I especially appreciate her willingness to work alongside other treatment methods (whether it be Western medicine or Naturopathy) and her willingness to listen to the person being treated to find the best treatment plan. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone experiencing issues with health or hormone imbalance.
