To date there is not a lot of research published on the treatment of endometriosis with Chinese medicine that meets the standard required for us to draw firm conclusions on efficacy. Two reviews have analysed findings from trials that evaluated acupuncture effect on endometriosis pain, recurrence rates and pregnancy rates, and other randomised controlled trials have examined the use of chinese medicine to prevent recurrence and to improve pregnancy rates after surgery. A large review has analysed the effect of acupuncture on dysmenorrhoea and is included in this section since pelvic pain from any source is considered to represent a blockage and must be addressed in a Chinese medicine fertility  consultation.
