Anovulation, Oligomenorrhoea and Luteal Phase Defect, Failure to ovulate (anovulation) can be caused by a number of factors including PCOS and dietary and lifestyle factors.

As well as addressing lifestyle factors and treating any underlying pathology, in Acupuncture, the hypothalamus-pituitary-ovarian axis of communication is normalized, through acupuncture treatment and lifestyle changes ensuring proper follicle production and ovulation at the correct time.

Hormonal imbalance is dealt with and estrogen, androgens and progesterone return to normal levels. This improves amenorrhea (absence of periods), oligomenorrhoea (scanty or infrequent periods) and luteal phase defect (preventing implantation of a successful pregnancy).
