The efficiency of traditional Chinese medicine theory and acupoints shows once more its accurate regulatory capacity by improving women biological cycles with the use of electroacupuncture (EA). Results presented in a research study that preformed ovulation induction in women with anovulation due to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), successfully provided data supporting acupuncture as a natural treatment for infertile women, with no significant side effects. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate how EA treatment can induce ovulation related to the hormonal and neuronal system in women affected by PCOS. This study introduces proof of effectivity and improvement based on the research of the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, that presents a study on how EA can be an alternative to ovulation-inducing drugs, to be considered as a possible holistic regulator of PCOS and symptoms. The study covered 24 women with PCOS and oligo-/amenorrhea who received EA in a low frequency of 2 Hz with a total of 14 treatments applied for 3 months. Samples were taken three times during the study to see fluctuations in hormonal, ovulatory, and symptomatic behavior of PCOS. Results demonstrated effective regular ovulatory inductions in more than a third of women.
