See also Leucorrhoea, Dysmenorrhoea and Menstruation.
Pain at the monthly periods, with flushed face and quick pulse, with vomiting of undigested food, sometimes acid taste.
Excessive congestion, blood bright-red. This remedy must be taken as a preventive before the periods if these symptoms are recurrent. It prevents menorrhagia in those predisposed thereto.
In pregnancy, with vomiting of food as taken, with or without acid taste, the food returns undigested.
First stage to remove the fever, pain and congestion.
Inflammation of the vagina, vaginismus, pain in the vagina from coition. Excessive dryness and sensitiveness, spasms of vagina.
The monthly periods are too late or suppressed, checked, white tongue, etc. Too early menses. Excessive discharge, dark, clotted or tough, black, like tar. If periods last too long, too frequent.
In pregnancy, also vomiting of white phlegm.
Ulceration of the os and cervix uteri, with the characteristic discharge of thick, white, mild secretions (glandular or follicular) from the mucous membrane (alkaline). Congestion of the uterus, chronic. Hypertrophy, second stage.
Discharge of milky-white mucus, non-irritating, mild. Puerperal fever, chief remedy.
Retention or delay of the monthly flow, with depression of spirits, lassitude and general nervous debility.

Is especially adapted to weakly, oversensitive women, light complexion, lax muscles, scrofulous constitution; for nervous, irritable women with dry skin; night-sweats; for constitutions with imperfect assimilation.
Acrid, smell strong, excoriating, generally too profuse. Leucorrhoeal discharge instead of menses. Icy coldness, especially of feet during menses. Nausea during sexual intercourse. Nymphomania. Backache with a sense of paralysis of the limbs. Offensive foot-sweat. All symptoms better from warmth.

The chief remedy in ordinary cases. Painful menstruation or pain preceding the flow. Vaginismus. Pains radiate from spine, relieved by warm clothing and pressure, aggravated by cold. Membranous dysmenorrhea. It is a new development of the virtues of Magnes. phos. to find it capable, by its physiological action, of relaxing a contracted uterus. Fifteen grains in hot water produced the effect in five minutes, enabling a retained placenta to be removed.
A watery, scalding, irritating discharge, smarting after or between the periods. Slimy, corroding.
Thin discharge, watery, or pale, thin, watery blood. Too profuse and too early, with splitting headache, great sadness, sweet risings. After local use of nitrate of silver.

Calcarea sulph. 6 is the best remedy for extravasation of pus within the pelvic tissues unconfined by any pyogenic membrane or when a pus-bag is formed by rupture of an abscess wall without pus finding an outlet into the pelvic viscera. Patient pale and weak. (B. F. Betts, M. D.)
Dysmenorrhoea with colic and chilliness, acrid menses, profuse with vesicular vulvitis. Nosebleed before menses.
Dr. V. W. Connor, of Lansing, Mich., reports an interesting case of chronic pelvic cellulitis, where the patient had been bed-ridden for nine years, cured with Kali mur. 3x. Improvement began at once and she gained 35 lbs.
E. S. Bailey, M. D., reports a case of menorrhagia cured by Ferrutn phos. 3x. The case presented a history of profuse menstruation, the flow was depleting, no pain or local tenderness—in fact, no tangible symptoms, the condition of anaemia representing the cause in this case (Ctmique, 1886, p. 374).
Dysmenorrhoea, menses late and scanty; Kali sulph., every four hours, cured permanently and completely. (W. M. Pratt, M. D., North American Jaurnal of Homeopathy, 1883.)
Doctor Phil. Porter reports a cure of papillomatous erosion of the cervix with Calc. fluor. 6x, in which the local symptoms were accompanied by a dyscrasic condition, enlarged cervical glands, emaciation and weakness. His prescription was based upon the constitutional changes, the local conditions (the fissured appearance of the cervix), and an abundantly yellowish leucorrhoea (Hahnemannian Monthly).
Case of dysmenorrhoea with neuroses, presenting recurring neurotic outbursts, painful and intense. Intense suffering during menses, headache, etc., had had nearly every homeopathic remedy, with no permanent relief. Kali phos. 6x cured. (D. B. Whittier, M. D., Trans. Mast. State Horn. Med. Society, 1886.)
A lady called to see me just after a severe haemorrhage from the womb—in fact, every time she menstruated she almost flooded to death. Upon examination I found the uterus hard and so large that it completely filled the vagina; this had doubtless been coming on for six years, since the birth of her child, as she complained of an increasing weight in that region all the time. I at once began to give her Calcarea fluor., a dose every four hours. This reduced the induration in four to six weeks to its natural size, and five years have passed and no return of the trouble. (A. P. Davis, M. D.)
Mrs. W., two weeks pregnant, had been vomiting nearly everything that she had eaten for these two weeks. Only food was vomited, and that soon after eating. Gave Ferrum phos. 12x four times a day, a small powder dry. What I wish to say of this case is this: Mrs. W. has had four children, and with every one had commenced vomiting almost at the moment of conception, and would continue all through pregnancy. The last four or five months of the time she would have to remain in bed, being so weak that she could not get about. She commenced the same way this time, but after giving the Ferrum phos. a few days the vomiting was very much controlled, and in a month had ceased entirely, and she went to term in splendid condition. While we cannot absolutely say that she would have been the same as at other times, yet it is natural to suppose that she would have. (G. H. Martin, M. D.)
Mrs. E., aet. 38, suffered for many years from chronic peritonitis and ovaritis. She would have subacute attacks, which would last for several months, confining her to her bed or room; hardly would she be well of one attack before another would be induced by a cold or some slight over-exertion. Was nervous and much depressed. One evening was seized with very severe pain in the uterine and left ovarian regions, extending over the whole abdomen, which was very sensitive to the slightest touch. Pulse, 120; temperature, 104. Ferrum phos. 12x and Kali phos. 12x were given in water every fifteen minutes, in alternation for two hours, when the pains were somewhat less. The remedies were then given every hour for several days, until all pain and sensitiveness had gone. The patient was kept under treatment for two weeks longer, when she was obliged to go away. She gradually grew stronger and better, and now two years have passed, and she has never had the slightest sign of the trouble, which she had had for so many years, and is well and strong. (G. H. Martin, M. D.)
Miss B., aet. 20, had been suffering for the past two years with severe ovaralgia at the menstrual period. She had been under the treatment of several physicians and the only relief that they were able to give her was by the use of Morphine, that being only temporary. We called late one night to see her and found her suffering with severe pain in the left ovary, of a dull, dragging character, and but slightly intermittent. Patient, hysterical and very excitable. Gave her Kali phos. 6x, in water every ten minutes, for half an hour, when patient went to sleep, not awaking until morning, when she was free from pain. Gave her Kali phos. 6x, night and morning, for a month; at the next menstrual period was again called and found her suffering much as before. Gave Kali phos. 12x every ten minutes and after two doses was relieved. Gave Kali phos. 12x, once a day for a month, and now, after eighteen months, has had no more pain, and is feeling better in every way. (G. H. Martin, M. D.)
Lady about 40, anteflexion of uterus with very peculiar nervous condition. Very solicitous about health, weak, exhausted with slight effort. Irritable and easily displeased, which was unnatural to her. Had suffered many annoyances. Hyperemia of the brain and hyperesthesia, which condition made her utterly miserable most of the time. Kali phos. entirely cured. (Sarah N. Smith, New York.)
