Hello,

Acupuncture is not the same thing as acupressure. Acupuncture uses needles on certain points of our bodies and the needles will be retained for around 30 mins. Of course, they penetrate the skin, and the effect is stronger and lasts longer. Acupressure is a stimulation of the points with the hand. It helps somewhat but the effects are not very strong nor do they last long.

Are medicines also involved in acupuncture treatment?

Some acupuncturist will work along with an MD for prescription medications, but an acupuncturist can prescribe herbal formulas that will speed up the healing process.

PCOD has a strong dietary causation. Acupuncture helps a lot to balance hormonal imbalances and reduce symptoms, but patients should continue with dietary changes; if not, eventually, it comes back. I recommend the keto diet for any patient suffering from hormonal imbalances. Sugar and carbohydrates should be minimal.
