Research published in 2014 has reviewed the use of acupuncture for women’s heath:

Acupuncture and women’s health: an overview of the role of acupuncture and its clinical management in women’s reproductive health (Cochrane et al, 2014)

"Acupuncture and other modalities of Chinese/East Asian medicine have been used to treat women’s health for many centuries. Gynecology specialties focus particularly on menstrual and reproductive disorders. Both the adoption of the use of acupuncture outside Asia, and the incorporation of scientific analysis in Asia have challenged biomedical conceptions of what can be achieved with this treatment method. The scale of research activity in relation to acupuncture and women’s health has increased over the last 20 years."
