Abstract:
Background: Dysfunctional uterine bleeding recently known as abnormal uterine bleeding is one of the significant health problems and social embarrassment for women who seek health care. It has a significant impact on the Quality of Life of women who belong to the reproductive age group, where they are observed to have a lower quality of life. The prevalence of abnormal uterine bleeding in India is reported to be around 17.9% [1]. The prevalence of dysfunctional uterine bleeding along with thyroid dysfunction is about 30% [2].
Objective:
 To study the efficacy of homoeopathic medicines in Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding associated with Thyroid Dysfunction, prescription based on the Quality and Quantity of the menstrual bleeding.
 To understand the incidence of Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding associated with Thyroid Dysfunction in women based on their age and socio-economic status.

Method: This was a prospective clinical research study to understand the management of patients having Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding associated with Thyroid Dysfunction with Homoeopathic medicines based on the Quality and Quantity of the menstrual bleeding. Fifteen (15) clinical cases diagnosed to have Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding with Thyroid Dysfunction were selected from the IPD, OPD and Rural centres of Sarada Krishna Homoeopathic Medical College and Hospital. The selected cases would be described directly from willing patients in the pre-structured case record format of Sarada Krishna Homoeopathic Medical College and Hospital via case taking and proper investigations. Data were collected with peculiar emphasis on the age, socioeconomic status and the bleeding patterns. The selection of potency and dosage was done based on the 9 Homoeopathic principles. Assessment period was maximum of six months and the follow ups were recorded periodically
Results: Among the 15 patients, majority of the patients belonged to the age group 26-35yrs. It was observed that the people belonging to the lower socioeconomic status were more susceptible to Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding associated with Thyroid Dysfunction. Among the 15 cases, 13 cases showed improvement in their menstrual irregularity when the prescription was given based on the Quality and Quantity of the menstrual bleeding. It was noted that a prescription given based on the Quality and Quantity of the menstrual bleeding has an influence on the Thyroid gland secretions, as the Thyroid hormone levels showed an improvement.
