Objective: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the stress-reducing technique Neuro Emotional Technique in promoting ovulation by decreasing both apparent and perceived stress.
Clinical Features: Two chronic patients underwent Neuro Emotional Technique. An analogue scale was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the intervention.
Outcomes: Anovulating patients started to ovulate following a series of treatments, initial VAS scale on menstrual irregularity was rated 10 out of a possible 10 (anovulation) for both patients. After treatment, both patients rated a 0 out of 10 on the VAS scale. A discussion of the potential link between stress and anovlulation through decreased insulin sensitivity and how the use of Neuro Emotional Technique resolved the anovulation seen in two patients is presented.
Conclusion: This study shows the successful management of anovulation by Neuro Emotional Technique in an uncontrolled case series. Further study into this through randomized controlled trial is required to investigate this technique as a therapy for anovulation in females.
