Treatments will be carried out by two experienced acupuncturists who are licensed by the Ministry of Health of China. In Phase 1, participants will receive three months of acupuncture treatments. The acupuncture sessions will be administered once a day, three times a week and last 30 minutes. The sessions will start seven days before the expected menstrual cycle. During the menstrual period, patients will receive acupuncture every day when they have endometriosis-associated pelvic pain. Phase 2 will be a follow-up period of three months with no treatments. The trial’s main goal is to assess the effect of acupuncture in pelvic discomfort, which will be measured with a visual analog scale (VAS). The study also will measure patients’ quality of life using the Endometriosis Health Profile −30 (EHP-30). The questionnaire will be administered at three stages – the beginning of the trial, the end of the three months of treatment, and at the end of the follow-up period. Patients’ physical functioning will be measured by a multi-dimensional pain inventory, a self-report that analyzes the effect of pain on an individual’s life.
