A new study is showing that acupuncture may provide some relief when it comes to menstrual pain. Researchers in Germany studied hundreds of women for three months. Patients who were given acupuncture showed a significant decrease in menstrual pain, compared to women who were given no treatment.

The researchers say insurers should consider acupuncture as a viable treatment option.
