Menstrual Problems 

In this Perth clinic we use homeopathy and naturopathic principles to to treat a wide range of menstrual and  reproductive problems in women.
Irregular menstrual cycle is a common presentation, where the periods vary between 3 to 6 weeks or longer. There are two common patterns, both of which are treatable by homeopathy.
It is called metrorrhagia if most of the periods are less than 4 weeks apart. A very short cycle, consistently less than 3 weeks, is called polymenorrhoea, or "many menses". This is often a lifestyle problem caused by poor diet, excessive caffeine and alcohol consumption, cigarette smoking and stress. Attention to these factors and the indicated constitutional homeopathic remedy, based on the patient's whole symptom pattern usually helps resolve this.
If the menses are between 4 weeks to 3 - 6 months it is known as oligomenorrhea. This may be caused either by low oestrogen or high oestrogen associated with polycystic ovarian syndrome (dealt with in more detail on a separate page). Where the menses stop completely, or fail to resume after stopping the Pill, it is called amenorrhoea

Menses suppressed due to wet feet, nervous debility. There is short duration of menses which is scanty. The menstrual flow is thick and changeable in character. The blood flows, stops and flows again. Flow is worse during day and on walking. Sexual desire intense for 4 or 5 days after the menses.
