  Abstract Objective: To observe the effect of acupuncture on hyperplasia of mammary glands. Methods: Sixty patients with hyperplasia of mammary glands were randomly divided into 2 groups, the treatment group and the control group, 30 cases in each group. The patients in the treatment group were treated by acupuncture combined with electromagnetic therapy, while the patients in the control group were treated by Tamoxifen. After treatment, the serum estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P) levels were detected during luteal phase. Results: The total effective rate of the treatment group was 90.3%, while it was 93.3% in the control group, there was no statistical difference (P>0.05). The E2 levels decreased, and the P levels increased in the two groups. After treatment, the E2 and P levels were significantly different from those before in the two groups(P<0.05). And there was no statistical difference of the E2 and P levels between the two groups both before and after the treatments. Conclusion: Acupuncture combined with electromagnetic therapy can regulate the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis' function, and can repair normal process from hyperplasia to involution of the mammary

glands. According to our study, the effect of acupuncture combine with electromagnetic therapy was almost the same as with western medicine.
