Can acupuncture help treat symptoms of Endometriosis?

Do you have Endometriosis and suffer from regular pain in your pelvis?

A team of researchers from the National Institute of Complementary Medicine at Western Sydney University and the University of NSW are looking for women aged 18-45 to join a clinical trial to examine if Acupuncture, a part of traditional Chinese medicine, may be able to help with reducing the pelvic pain that is associated with endometriosis.

If you live in Sydney and have had a diagnosis of Endometriosis in the past 5 years you may be eligible to join. If you are interested and think you are eligible please answer the brief questions below and provide your contact details and Dr Mike Armour will be in touch to discuss the study with you shortly. Participation is voluntary and you may change your mind at any time. Please read the information sheet () (opens in a new window) for more information. 

If you have had more than one laparoscopy please use the date of your most recent one.
Do you have any of these other symptoms of endometriosis?

If you choose to participate in the study, you may be randomly assigned to a group that gets acupuncture twice a week for 8 weeks. There are a number of practitioners across Sydney that will be delivering the treatment, so there should be a practitioner that is geographically convenient.

Thanks for answering our questions. Please select the submit button below and a member of the research team will be in touch within three working days to discuss your eligibility and to answer any questions you might have about the study.
