中医如何治疗女性多毛症

一谈到多毛症,有人就容易与毛发过多混为一谈。实际上,两者是有区别的,它们产生的原因也不同。女性多毛症的早期症状可能只表现毛发过多,使人难以分辨。而毛发过多并呈进行性发展或突然增多时,才属于女性多毛症。 那么毛发过多与女性多毛症有什么区别呢? 毛发过多是指体表毛发增多,大部分有家族性毛发过多史,无出现男性化的表现,因没有生理异常,所以无需治疗。而女性多毛症的特征是只有与雄性激素有关部位的毛发变多,例如上唇、下巴、下颌轮廓线、前胸、下腹、大腿上方等,毛发分布形式有男性倾向。有的伴有男性化现象,如有喉结出现,声调低沉、秃顶及阴蒂肥大等,多数还伴有向心性肥胖、月经异常或闭经等症状. 女性多毛症往往与体内激素失调,即雄激素过多。升高的雄激素可能是因卵巢源性雄激素增多、肾上腺源性激素增多和外源性激素及药物所致。而女性发生多毛症的最常见原因是多囊卵巢综合征所致,大多数还伴随着较严重的青春痘和月经周期不规则的症状。 多囊卵巢综合征是青春期和育龄期妇女最常见的一种内分泌异常,以月经失调(月经稀发或闭经)、不孕、多毛、痤疮和肥胖为主症,是神经、内分泌系统及代谢调控失衡引起的疾病。中医在临床治疗方面,主要以调整内分泌紊乱和调整正常后促排卵用药为主。补肾活血是中医治疗多囊卵巢综合征的基本方法。补肾中药被认为具有内分泌激素样作用,能够对女性性腺轴具有双向调节作用,补肾基础上加活血药物又能改善卵巢局部的血液循环,增加卵巢血流量,从而促使卵泡发育、诱发排卵及促进黄体形成。中医也通过针灸调节下丘脑–垂体–卵巢轴功能而达到调节内分泌的作用。中医针灸治疗本病具有较好的疗效,针灸通过刺激经穴,调理脏腑功能、调和气血,能从多途径、多靶点进行调整,不仅可以调节内分泌激素水平而达到促排卵的效果,还能调节异常的糖脂代谢,从而改善胰岛素抵抗以及减肥降脂,还可以减少痤疮、多毛等症。 病案举例: 患者,女,26岁,2017年6月17日初诊。患者2016年10月闭经4个月诊断为多囊卵巢综合征。末次月经2017年3月9日,月经量少色暗。患者形体偏胖,颜面部痤疮,体毛较多,平素易烦躁,睡眠差,舌略红苔薄,脉滑略弦。根据以上症状,此患者属于肾阴亏虚,相火亢盛,瘀血阻滞。于内服滋阴活血的中药及针灸治疗数疗程后,痤疮及毛发明显减少,2017年8月4日月经来潮,量略有增加。依照序贯疗法,服中药至12月初,服药期间,月经29至35日一行,量色逐渐改善,经期3至6天。 不论是毛发过多或多毛症,建议皆需请医师诊察,查明病因后,对症治疗。 黄爱妨 中医师
