A 13-year-old girl, with the onset of puberty on 19 April 2018, had heavy menstrual bleeding for a week. As she had two more such difficult periods within the next five weeks, the practitioner, who is her mother, gave the following remedy on 23 May 2018:
#1. CC8.7 Menses frequent + CC15.1 Mental and Emotional Tonic...QDS
There was not much change as she had 2 more similar periods within the next 6 weeks. As such aberrations happen in the initial stages, the mother was confident that things will settle with the remedy. When her daughter had the next period also within 3 weeks, she immediately consulted a gynaecologist on 14 August 2018. Though the prescribed allopathic medicine reduced the heavy bleeding in 2 days but bleeding continued for another 12 days. This frustrated the patient as it was difficult for her to attend school during those days. Her doctor suggested a hormonal treatment but her mother was not willing to continue allopathic medicines.
Instead, on 17 September 2018, consulted a senior practitioner 10375 who made the following remedy to replace #1:
#2. NM6 Calming + NM56 Menses Bleeding + BR16 Female + SR256 Ferrum Phos + SR537 Uterus…TDS
After 3 days, her period started (which was exactly 3 weeks after her previous one), and lasted for 10 days with normal bleeding. Subsequent three periods from October happened at regular intervals of about a month, with normal bleeding for 7 days. From January 2019, even the duration of periods was stabilised at 4-5 days. After 7 months on 29 April 2019, dosage was reduced to OD and then gradually tapered down before stopping on 1 July 2019. As of 19 August 2019, the patient is 100% free of her menstrual problems with no recurrence.
