PMS, Period Cramps, Endometriosis*
I came to Dr. Fu from a referral from a friend who had experienced great success with him in managing her pain that comes with having endometriosis. I too have always suffered with horrible and debilitating pain from my periods my whole life. The only option that was given to me was birth control pills. Unfortunately, just like many other pharmaceutical drugs there are always side effects with them. Plus I did not want to be on synthetic hormones for the rest of my life and it wasn’t helping my pain that much anyway.
Fast forward to after the birth of my first daughter. After I had her and my periods came back, they were as painful as ever. What was worse is that I suffered from horrible ovulation pain as well. My abdomen would swell up so big and I would basically be cramping and in pain from ovulation until my period. Basically I was in extreme pain for 2 weeks out of the month.
When I went to see my OB to figure out why I had all this pain she saw 2 chocolate cysts on my ultrasound and pointed to endometriosis. I was devastated. To think that I would be in pain for half the month every month was so hard for me to accept. My OB had mentioned surgery but since I was trying to get pregnant with my second baby that was not an option for now.
Also, what I figured out is that because I was on the pill for so long it suppresses ovulation so I never knew I suffered from ovulation pain too! But now that I was trying to get pregnant again, the pill was not an option.
So i suffered every month until I finally got pregnant again and didn’t have periods for a whole year. Fast forward again to after having my second baby. I was so scared and sad when I got my first post partem period because I did not want to suffer for 2 weeks out of the month again! By luck my friend told me about Dr. Fu and I made an appointment right away.
It has now been 6 months since I see him for my weekly treatments. I can honestly say I do not suffer from any pain anymore! I don’t have to stay in bed or even take an Advil which is HUGE for me. I don’t even suffer from PMS. I literally go through the entire month pain free and wake up and get my period. This has never happened my entire life. Dr. Fu is simply amazing, I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for PMS relief or relief from endometriosis. I am not on the pill and will never do a surgery because of how well I have responded to his method of acupuncture in treating my endometrial pain. He helped me tremendously as well as my friend who referred me to him.
His staff is also so sweet and friendly and his office is very nice and clean.
Please go see him, you won’t regret it as he really is the best!
