AB  - BACKGROUND: Acupuncture may improve the menstrual frequency of women with
      polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). However, more sufficient data are needed to
      improve the efficacy of acupuncture. METHODS: A total of 172 participants
      diagnosed with PCOS would be randomly assigned to either the acupuncture group or
      sham-acupuncture group, at a ratio of 1:1. Participants in both groups will
      receive treatment for 12 weeks, 3 times a week. The primary outcome will be the
      proportion of participants with at least a 50% increase from baseline in the
      monthly menstrual frequency from baseline after 12 weeks intervention, while
      secondary outcomes will be the difference in anthropometrics, serum hormone
      level, ovarian morphology, anxiety and depression, and quality of life from
      baseline to after 12 weeks intervention and to 12 weeks postintervention
      follow-up between groups. DISCUSSION: The aim of this study is to evaluate the
      efficacy and safety of acupuncture for improving menstrual frequency and other
      symptoms of patients with PCOS. The limitation of this trial is that it would be 
      difficult to blind the acupuncturists. In addition, these findings may not be
      suitable for women with PCOS who are seeking pregnancy.
