The analysis of a sample of 255 patients affected by different gynecological diseases, such as: uterine myomas, ovarian cysts, breast dysplasia, and chronic pelvic disease (CPD), is presented. As a result of the treatment used according to the affections, it was proved that there was a higher frequency of total symptomatic improvement among uterine myomas with 42,9 %, followed by CPD with 34.8 %, breast dysplasia with 29.2 %, and ovarian cysts with 14.3 %. The highest frequency of partial symptomatic improvement was observed in the ovarian cysts with 84.7 %, breast dysplasia with 70.8 %, CPD with 52.8 %, and uterine myomas with 49 %. As to breast dysplasias and ovarian cysts, tumors were reduced in 66.7 % of the cases, and in uterine myomas in 49 %. No improvement was observed in 12.4 % of the CPD and in 8.2 % of the uterine myomas.
