A case of dysmennorhoea

This is the case of a girl aged 16 years with severe pain in abdomen starting one day before and continuing for first two days of menses. Pain used to be severe preventing her from normal activity and accompanied by nausea and loss of appetite.

Along with this she also complained of:

  • Myopia with pain in eyes on straining


She was a very timid and mild girl, having fear of darkness. She would wake up at night if light is switched off.
A reserved person by nature, especially shy in front of strangers. She was very good in studies, always studied on her own, with lots of anticipatory anxiety before exams.
She couldn’t tolerate cold weather.

Medicine prescribed:

After a detailed analysis of her case she was prescribed a dose of a homeopathic remedy called SILICEA 1M and she was called after 1 month for her follow up.

Follow ups:

First follow up after 1 month – She had pain in abdomen but during first day of menses only.
During her second visit, she had a rash over her arms which disappeared in a short duration. With subsequent follow ups her menstrual pain reduced slowly and she started having normal periods with some improvement in her myopia too.
