Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To observe the clinical efficacy on primary dysmenorrhea treated with isolated herbal moxibustion on Shenque (CV 8).

METHODS

One hundred and two cases were randomized into isolated herbal moxibustion group and western medication group, 51 cases in each one. In isolated herbal moxibustion group, the cases were treated with isolated herbal moxibustion on Shenque (CV 8), and in western medication group, analgesic was administered.

RESULTS

In isolated herbal moxibustion group, 17 cases were cured, 21 cases effective markedly, 9 cases effective and 4 cases failed. The total effective rate was 92.2%. In western medication group, 7 cases were cured, 11 cases effective markedly, 21 cases effective and 12 cases failed. The total effective rate was 76.5%. The comparison of the total effective rates between two groups indicated significant difference in statistics (P < 0.01), in which, the result in isolated herbal moxibustion group was superior to that in western medication group. In comparison of dysmenorrhea score before and after treatment and side effects of two groups, the significant differences presented in statistics, in which, the results in isolated herbal moxibustion group were superior to those in western medication group (all P < 0.01).

CONCLUSION

The isolated herbal moxibustion on Shenque (CV 8) is superior to oral medication of analgesic for primary dysmenorrhea and it deserves to be promoted due to its advantages on safety, less side effect and good compliance of patients.
