Dysmenorrhoea - Painful Menstruation
Category: DISEASES OF FEMALES
Source: An Epitome Of Homeopathic Healing Art
For this disorder, I know of no one remedy so valuable as the
_Caulophyllin_, but _Pulsatilla_ in many cases is efficacious, and as
they do not prevent each other's action, I prescribe them in
alternation, giving a dose every half hour, for a short time during the
paroxysm, or until the pain abates to some extent, then every hour.
If there is pain in the head, sickness at the stomach, a kind of sick
headache, as is often the case, with painful menstruation, _Macrotin_
should be used with the others; _Ipecac_ is the _Specific_ for an
excessive flow of the menses with great pain, especially if the stomach
is nauseated. It should be given as low as the first dilution, and the
tincture, in water, in the proportion of thirty drops to half a pint,
injected into the vagina quite warm.
The application of extract of _Belladonna_ to the neck of the uterus
will often produce immediate and perfect relief. After the patient is
relieved from the painful paroxysm, she should be treated so as to
prevent a return of the pains at the next monthly period. _Pulsatilla_,
_Caulophyllin_ and _Podophyllin_ are the three medicines that are most
certain to effect this object. They are to be given, one medicine each
day, a dose at night for three weeks, then morning, noon and night,
until the time for the return of the menses, when they should be used
oftener if there is pain. If the patient is inclined to be costive,
_Nux_ should be given at night for a few days before the menstrual
period, in place of _Pulsatilla_.
