AGE 15, GIRL NO PUBERTY(NO MENSTRUATION) I STUDIED ACUPUNCTURE
IF YOU PRESCRIBE RELEVANT ACUPUNCTURE POINT . IT WILL BE MORE USEFUL TO PATIENT

What would be most useful to the patient is to refer them to an experienced practitioner. Studying the techniques of acupuncture without a full comprehension of the diagnostic framework of Chinese Medicine is useless at best and harmful at worst.

In Chinese Medicine you do not treat symptoms (see “What Does Acupuncture Treat?” for more on this). You treat diagnoses in Chinese Medicine - so first you find their diagnosis in Chinese Medicine terms and that is what you develop your acupuncture point treatment plan from that.

Now in this case it would not be wrong for a 15 yo girl to have not started menstruation yet. In the late 1800’s the average age was ~16.6 and in current times in modern western areas particularly this is unfortunately getting closer to 12. That said, depending on where you live you can still see some not starting until 16 or 17 and that is more healthy if it is happening for natural reasons than starting younger.

Now if it is a 15 yo girl who had a couple cycles, then didn’t for a few months, etc. then that is something you would treat. Our page on irregular menstruation treatment would list some of the general diagnoses and relevant points.
