The reasons for prescribing the following medicines substantiated
1.Lachesis:Lachesis is suited to over sensitive women , who are very talkative the symptoms include violent head ache , boring pain in the vertex during menses the menstrual sufferings are worse before and after the flow and better during the flow
Fibroid ,tumor in patients who are sad , anxious and loquacious pain in the left ovary , relieved by discharge from the uterus . can not bear the tightness about the waist and loins . Tendency to more from left to right , chronic enlargement of the ovaries .
2.Sepia:there is violent pain in the cervical canal with intense prutitus , there is a bearing down sensation with weakness and a tired pain in the small of back pain in abdomen , clots during menstrual flow + weakness . sepia is a constitutional remedy in suitable potency according to susceptibility remedy response of the case sepia is suited to tall , thin women with a narrow pelvis . It is indicated in menstrual complaints in women who are hysterical and break out in spells of weeping . there is feeling of despair and hopelessness .
3. Fraxinus Americana Q: enlarged uterus with bearing down sensation and cramping pain in feet mostly in afternoon and night . when bearing down and drawing pains of the loins are present , even when a myoma or fibroid ,tumor with painfulness and heaviness of the uterus is found “Fraxinus Americana Q “is one of the important remedies to be considered . Dr. Burnett and Dr Dorthy Shephered had cited several cases where this remedy had proved curative in uterine fibroid and other uterine problems . I prescribed fraxinus Americana Q 20 drops in water 3 times daily . She was improving and medicines continued 20 drops tds for 3 months . Her enlarged womb reduced to its normal size and gravitated back to its normal place and uterine fibroids had disappeared , her general health also improved .
4.Natrum mur. 1M : is especially indicated in trouble some menstruation in women who are extremely emotional and greatly disturbed by excitement . the menses may be too scanty or too profuse , too late / too soon . This is mainly a constitutional deep acting remedy . The patient may give a history of grief and may suffer from head aches . Natrum mur 1M is suited to women with a psychic origin of ailments .
There fore I asked for sonography : The result was encouraging , I have attached reports of both . The beginning and after homoeopathic treatment .
Second report : No fibroid but still has bulky uterus . The treatment is still being continued for bulky uterus .
