Synopsis:

 
  A pilot study of 8 women, ages 24-34 yrs, with long cycles (33-90days) of PCO/PCOS were given 19 sessions of reflexology over 5-6 months. Medical histories, gynecological exams, ultrasound scans, blood tests and medical observations were done. Results: In the experimental group, the length of menstrual cycles and the number of follicles in ovaries were reduced; however, the hormone values and quality of life showed no change.

Conclusion:

 
  Reflexology was shown to be effective in reducing the length of the menstrual cycle and number of follicles in women who have been diagnosed with PCO/PCOS; however, further research is needed with a larger group of participants.
