Acupuncture helps Period Pain

In a trial to see whether acupuncture helps period pain, 201 patients were randomly allocated to receive either 15 acupuncture sessions over three months, or no acupuncture. Evaluation after three months showed the acupuncture patients to have less pain, and an improved quality of life compared to the control group.
