Author(s): Dr. Keerti Pathak
Abstract: Dysmenorrhea is the most common gynecological problem among females. Primarydysmenorrhea refers to one that is not associated with any identifiable pelvic pathology. It affects more than 50% postpubescent women in the age group of 18-25 years with ovulatory cycles. A 26 years old unmarried Hindu female reported with the complaints of pain in the lower abdomen and thighs before and during menses since menarche. She could not go to office during first day of menses. Abdominal and pelvic examination did not reveal any abnormal findings and Visual Analog Scale was used for assessment of pain. A complete case history was taken and on the basis of individualization, Natrum muriaticum was given. This case justifies the Kent’s 11th observation i.e. ‘When old symptoms are observed to reappear .’ It shows the effect of constitutional homoeopathic medicine in the treatment of primary dysmenorrhea.
