Painful Menstruation — Menstrual Colic — Dysmenorrhea


Dysmenorrhea means a difficult monthly flow, and is always preceded by severe pains in the back and lower part of the abdomen. It is caused by taking cold during the period; fright, violent mental emotions, obstinate constipation, sedentary occupations, smallness of the mouth and neck of the womb.



Females subject to this trouble are generally relieved by marriage. The symptoms are severe bearing-down pains in the region of the uterus, like labor pains; restlessness, coldness, flashes of heat, with headache; aching in the small of the back, lower part of the abdomen, and thighs; the discharge is scanty, and contains shreds of fiber and clotted blood.



Home Management



The patient should immediately go to bed and cover up warmly. Stimulating food and drinks should be avoided. Use a warm foot bath and sitting-bath, with hot poultices of hops or cloths wet in hot water applied to the abdomen.



In the interval of the menses, take active exercise, with a tepid hip bath three nights in the week, injecting some of the water high up in the vagina. Keep the bowels open by a pill of aloes and myrrh, and take a small teaspoonful of the volatile tincture of guiacum three times a day, in water. On the approach of the period, take the following at night:



CalomelThree grains
OpiumOne grain


In the morning a dose of caster oil, and on the appearance of the menses, the Dover’s Powder and mixture as before. Repeat this treatment, in each interval, until permanently relieved.



The following is recommended by an eminent physician, to be taken a few days before the period:



Acetous tincture of colchicumThree drams
MagnesiaOne dram
Sulphate of magnesiaThree drams
Distilled mint or cinnamon waterFour ounces


Mix. Dose: A small wineglassful every two or three hours until it operates. This should be preceded the night before by a small dose of blue pill.
