Study shows acupuncture beats out medication in the treatment of menstrual pain. In a study in Hubei University School of Medicine in China, women were divided into two groups. One group was to receive acupuncture while the other was to be given the NSAID (Ibuprofen). The acupuncture group had an effectiveness rate of 98% while the medication group had an effectiveness rate of 58%.
