Acupuncture concern

Hi everyone,

I’ve been struggling a bit with hormone therapy treatment, mainly fatigue and hot flushes.

I had one treatment of acupuncture a couple of weeks ago as I read it can help with menopausal symptoms but just read that acupuncture raises oetrogen levels which with a hormonal cancer is not what I want.

Does anyone have any knowledge of this?

Thank you


Hello @gems1

I would discuss your concerns with your acupuncturist

Personally I saw an acupuncturist a few years ago for fertility issues, then a few years later encountered her having radiotherapy for breast cancer at the same time I was having mine! I’ve subsequently seen her for a session to help with menopausal symptoms
