Menometrorrhagia is heavy and abnormal uterine bleeding that occurs after menstruation. Bleeding is often due to hormonal imbalance and can be cured by resorting to hormone-based treatment. Menometrorrhagia may also be caused by the presence of a tumour in the uterus. Women aged 20 to 45 years old are the ones that are the most affected by this pathology. In other words, those that are still of childbearing age are most at-risk. Menometrorrhagia may nevertheless appear in patients suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome.
In most cases, menometrorrhagia frequently leads to prolonged bleeding after menstruation. Not only does the bleeding lasts a while, but it is more akin to a uterine haemorrhage. Other symptoms such as bleeding during menopause or postmenopause may also occurs, sometimes requiring the patient to resort to hormone replacement therapy. Menorrhagia may be a warning sign of menometrorrhagia, although a doctor’s diagnosis is always needed for confirmation.
Ipeca is recommended for dealing with most gynaecological disorders, including menometrorrhagia. It will be administered in 9-CH dilution, and the patient will need to take 5 granules four times a day as an adjunctive therapy. Ipeca thins the blood clots and alleviates the nausea that accompany the disease. This remedy is also recommended as a preventive treatment. In this case, the patient must take 5 granules of Ipeca 7 CH or 15 CH a day before the start of the menstruation period, and follow this treatment over the course of three consecutive menstrual cycles.
Ustilago 4 CH to 9 CH is also prescribed in case of gynaecological problems leading to more or less substantial bleeding. If menometrorrhagia is linked to hot flashes, it is advisable to take 3 granules of Ustilago 5 CH once a day.
If the main symptoms of menometrorrhagia manifest themselves through heavy menstrual periods, occurring especially at night, the patient should be cured with 3 granules of Bovista Gigantea 4 CH, to be administered 3 times a day. Then, treatment must be discontinued as soon as the bleeding stops. In case the disease is accompanied by diarrhoea, it is best to follow a treatment with Bovista Gigantea 9 CH, of which four 5-granule doses need to be taken daily.
Small blood spots may be observed at the beginning of the menstrual period, especially if the subject is on the pill. The same applies to women who are going through menopause or postmenopause, especially around the 10th and 12th day of each hormonal cycle. However, bleeding that is not caused by hormone replacement must lead the patient to seek medical attention without delay. If the patient is in puberty and subject to vaginal bleeding, it is also advisable to promptly consult a doctor.

Good to know: The homoeopathic remedies that are used to treat menometrorrhagia are deep-down treatments. It is advisable to wait for a doctor’s recommendation before taking these remedies since a medical examination could reveal a pregnancy or the presence of a tumour responsible for the bleeding.
