Patients with chronic endometritis are best treated with Chinese acupuncture and acupuncture points.

Generally speaking, the physical acupuncture points that can be used in the treatment of endometritis are related to Yuan, Qihai, and Sanyinjiao. The selected points include Zusanli, Qichong, Ligou, and Yinlingquan. In the specific treatment, one or two points can be selected based on the main points of acupuncture and moxibustion according to other symptoms. Moderate stimulation can be used, and the needles can be retained for 15-20 minutes. Acupuncture and moxibustion is sufficient once a day, and one week of continuous treatment is a course of treatment. Most patients can obtain obvious therapeutic effects after acupuncture and moxibustion once or twice.

In addition to acupuncture and moxibustion, patients with endometritis can also be treated by ear acupuncture. The acupuncture points that can be selected for ear acupuncture include the uterus, ovaries, and endocrine. In addition, it is not enough for patients with endometritis to treat with acupuncture and moxibustion alone. During this period, they can also be treated with Chinese medicine.

In addition, acupuncture and moxibustion cannot lack the help of other treatment methods. Only by combining multiple methods for treatment and taking various nursing and health care measures can you better improve your physical fitness and speed up the recovery of inflammation.
