Irregular Period, PCOS

My name is Helen and I have been dealing with irregular menstrual periods and poly-cystic ovarian syndrome for 10 years. The only solution my primary care physician and OB/GYN provider gave me was taking birth control pills to regulate my hormones and periods. I was on birth control for 2 years and did not like the side affects at all. After 2 years, I made a personal choice to stop the birth control and since my providers did not suggest any other forms of treatments, I was left to just deal with my condition.

Recently, my mother began acupuncture treatments for her arm with Dr. Bina and witnessed great results. Therefore, she referred me to Dr. Bina for a consultation. My first visit with Dr. Bina, she made me feel very hopeful, because she informed me that acupuncture would be a very effective treatment for my condition. I had my first session with Dr. Bina on February 2, 2017 and due to the cold/ flu season, I got sick the following day and was not able to see any change in my condition. My second session with Dr. Bina was the following week on February 24, 2017 and I was getting over my cold but still went in for my acupuncture treatment. When I mentioned to Dr. Bina that I was getting over my cold but still had a sore throat, she used that session to focus on my current issues. After the session, as I was driving home, I noticed that my sore throat was completely gone. After my second session, I also got my period (which I had not had for 10 months). Getting my period was such a shock to me and a revelation, that just only after 2 sessions of acupuncture, I am seeing a positive change in my condition.

I am very happy, because I feel like acupuncture is truly a healthy and effective treatment for me. I know that I have a long way to go to be fully cured, but I am hopeful. Through my acupuncture sessions with Dr. Bina, I honestly feel like I am on the right path in treating my condition and I cannot wait to see other positive changes.
