Accupuncture and period
ord2srq posted:
I've not had a period in several years, I started accupuncture for a shoulder issue and started what I would call a really heavy period now for about 7 days. Has anyone else experienced this when starting accupuncture. I want to go back to not having periods, good lord, does this mean I have to go through menopause again!! I'm only 52 and really don't want to have to do that again, even thought it was a piece of cake for me.
