Delayed And Obstructed Menstruation



When the menses do not appear at the time when they may naturally be expected, we call it delayed or obstructed menstruation. It is, however, of great importance to know whether a girl is sufficiently developed to make it necessary for the menses to appear, although she may have reached the proper age.


As long as the girl has not increased physically, if she has not become wider across the hips, if her breasts have not become enlarged, and if she experience none of the changes incident to this period, an effort to force nature is positively injurious. 


In this case a general treatment will be called for. She should be required to exercise freely in the open air, retire early to bed and rise at an early hour in the morning. She should not be allowed to be closely confined to school, if attending.


Her diet should be generous but free from all rich food, which will disorder the stomach. If, however, she is fully developed, and she suffers from time to time from congestions of the head, breast or abdomen, it will be necessary to interfere.


The following are symptoms which will generally be found in these cases: Headache, weight, fullness, and throbbing in the center of the cranium and in the back part of the head; pains in the back and loins; cold feet and hands, becoming sometimes very hot; skin harsh and dry; slow pulse, and not infrequently attended with epilepsy.



Management



It is well for the patient, a few days before the period, to take a warm hip bath or foot bath twice a day, and at night, when retiring, to apply cloths wet in warm water to the lower part of the abdomen.


The bowels should be kept open by some mild catharsis, as castor oil or a pill of aloes. If there is pain and fullness of the head during the discharge, or before it, use the following:



Tincture of aconite leavesTwo drams
Tincture of belladonnaOne dram
Tincture of cantharidesOne dram
MorphiaThree grains
Simple syrupQuarter ounce


Mix. Dose: One teaspoonful three times a day. If the pain is severe it may be taken every two hours.



Between the monthly periods, if the system is weak, the following may be taken:



Precip. carbonate of ironFive drams
Extract of coniumTwo drams
Balsam PeruOne dram
AlcoholFour ounces
Oil wintergreenTwenty drops
Simple syrupEight ounces


Dose: Two teaspoonfuls three times a day. Shake the mixture before using.
