Conditions Treatable with Acupuncture for Obstetrics and Gynecology

At Yejee Acupuncture for Obstetrics and Gynecology NYC, our experienced team of acupuncturists can treat the following conditions:

Amenorrhea

Chinese Medicine is effective at treating various causes of lack of a menstrual cycle, or amenorrhea, in stabilizing the menses, and helping to promote ovulation. Whether amenorrhea is exercise or stress induced, is caused by a hormonal imbalance, or is due to PCOS, Yejee Acupuncture will approach each individualized case using herbal medicine, acupuncture, dietary or lifestyle changes to regulate the menstrual cycle and correct the imbalance.

Breech Presentation

At 34 to 37 weeks gestation, the fetus moves into position for birth with its head facing downward. When not positioned in such a way, it is called a breech presentation.Through the use of moxibustion (warming a specific acupuncture point using an herbal incense), babies can often turn to the appropriate position.

Fibrocystic Breasts

Many women that are of childbearing age can develop non-cancerous lumps in their breast tissue. These are responsive to the fluctuating hormones of the menstrual cycle and can often cause swelling and pain, especially in the days leading up to the menses. In Chinese medicine, this symptom is associated with stagnation and it is treated by improving the circulation of qi and blood with Chinese herbs and acupuncture.

Irregular Menstrution

A standard menstrual cycle mostly occurs every 28 days. Some women experience cycles that are lengthy, or shortened ones, and some that are different on every occasion. Herbal Medicine and acupuncture helps to stabilize menses and ovulation to promote a regular cycle.

Labor Induction

Acupuncture for labor induction may be used to avoid the use of epidurals, emergency cesarean and medical induction. There are many acupuncture points that are not used during the early stages of pregnancy because they are known to stimulate uterine contractions. However, after 36 weeks these points are safe to use to signal for the body to go into full term labor.

Lactation Support

Chinese herbs, changes to the diet, and acupuncture help with flow in lactating women and milk supply.

Pregnancy Back Pain

Back pain can be common as the baby starts to put pressure on the back and pelvis during pregnancy. Acupuncture is as an effective solution and treatment for back pain, and is particularly effective for pregnancy related hip and back pain.
