Pelvic Inflammatory Disease Treated with Acupuncture

Untreated STDs like Chlamydia and gonorrhea can turn into infections affecting female reproductive organs. When the STD causing bacteria moves up from the vagina to the cervix and other organs, it can cause Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID). This can take anytime from a few days to a few months. This leads to inflammation of the uterus, fallopian tubes, cervix, or ovaries, and it can pose serious risk for infertility.

In the United States alone, 750,000 women are diagnosed with PID every year, and approximately 100,000 are rendered infertile. Those who do manage to conceive often experience ectopic pregnancies, which is a very serious condition in which the embryo implants outside the uterine cavity.

To protect yourself from further spreading of these harmful bacteria, or to help improve your chances of conception and pregnancy without any complication, we urge you to consider acupuncture as a safe and healthy method of treating your disease.

Symptoms of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

Not all cases of PID show outward symptoms, but when they are present, they can range from mild to severe, depending on each person. Some of the common symptoms are:

  • High fever
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Pain during sex
  • Painful urination
  • Irregular period cycles
  • Abdominal pain

Because PID is usually associated with STDs, you are likely to never contract it if you practice safe sex. Women who have never had sexual intercourse or have not had multiple sexual partners can probably rule out the likelihood of PID, but if the symptoms persist, it is advised that you see a doctor for a proper diagnosis.

Conventional Treatments

Normally, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease is treated by prescribing antibiotics which kill the bacteria. The trouble with antibiotics, however, is that they are objective and kill all bacteria in their way, even those that are actually necessary for your health. Because adherence to conventional medicine is very low, there is a great chance that a patient will discontinue the dose before time, letting the bacteria form a resistance to the antibiotic and coming back stronger and faster than before.

Allowing antibiotics into your system is harmful and can put a lot of stress on other organs. It also creates a harsh environment for your new baby. This is why more and more women are opting for alternative medicine in the form of acupuncture therapy for Pelvic Inflammatory Disease.

Benefits of Acupuncture for PID

Because acupuncture stimulates certain meridians and pathways in the body through which energy, or qi, can pass, any problems associated with stagnation of energy can be alleviated. Acupuncture helps regulate blood flow, as well as stimulates white blood cells which fight off any pathogens.

It also helps release endorphins, and other hormones associated with healing, which can lower the body’s sensitivity to pain. Acupuncture ensures that the infection is fully gone from the body, so that normal pregnancies and easy conception are possible. All of this can be managed via acupuncture, without flooding the body with unnecessary chemicals.
