MENORRHAGIA

Menorrhagia is one of the most common gynaecologic complaint seen in most of women and young girls. Almost every women experiences such episode of bleeding at some point of time in their life.

Menorrhagia may start anytime from menarche through reproductive years to menopause.

WHAT IS MENORRHAGIA?

Menorrhagia is defined as a cyclic bleeding at normal intervals, the bleeding is either excessive in amount or duration or both.

The term menorrhagia is derived from the greek word

MEN meaning Menses
RRHAGIA meaning burst forth.

Menorrhagia interferes with a womens physical, emotional and social quality of life.

LETS US NOW FIRST UNDERSTAND THE NORMAL MENSTRUAL BLEEDING

A normal menstrual blood loss is 50 to 80 ml and usually does not exceed more than 100 ml.
In menorrhagia, the menstrual cycle is unaltered but the duration and quantity of menstrual bleed are increased.
Menorrhagia is essentially a symptom and not a disease in itself.

NORMAL CONTROL OF MENSTRUAL BLEED

Once the menstrual bleeding starts the platelet forms clots in the opened vessels. Prostaglandins causes myometrial contractions and constricts the endometrial vessels. The repair of endothelial regeneration begins on 3rd and 4th day of period, by growth of epithelial cells from the open endometrial glands aided by vasculal endothelial epidermal and fibroblastic growth factor.
In menorrhagia or excessive bleeding with regular menstrual cycles, the Hypothalamopituitary ovarian axis is intact but endometrial changes get altered.

What are Ovulatory and Anovulatory Cycles?

A more logical approach is to divide the abnormal uterine bleeding into those patterns associated with ovulatory and anovulatory cycles.

Ovulatory Cycles

Normal menstrual bleeding with ovulatory cycle ia spontaneous, regular, cyclic, predictable and frequently associated with discomfort that is dysmenorrhoea.

Anovulatory Cycles

Uterine bleeding that is unpredictable with respect to the amount, onset and duration and is usually painless, as in dysfunctional uterine bleeding like menorrhagia.

CAUSES OF MENORRHAGIA

The most common cause lies in Disturbed Hypothalamo-Pitutary-Ovarian axis resulting in condition like polycystic ovaries PCOS, Immature development of organs results in anovulation in the earlier years, unapposed oestrogen causing endometrial hyperplasia. As the girl matures the normal menstrual cycle are established.

General Causes – Blood dyscrasia, coagulation disorders, thrombocytopenic purpura, severe anaemia, leukamia, Von willebrand disease.

Uterine Causes –  Uterine fibroids, fibroidal polyps, adenomyosis, endometrial hyperplasia, endometriosis etc.

Pelvic inflammatory diseases can cause menorrhagia.

Use of Intrauterine devices, it is seen that 5 to 10% of women using intra uterine devices suffer from menorrhagia in 1st few months.

Pregnancy complications include Single, heavy, late period may be due to miscarriage. Another cause of heavy bleeding during pregnancy includes location of placenta , low lying placenta or placenta previa.

Malignancies – Uterine cancer or cervical cancer can cause heavy bleeding.

Medications– Certain medications can cause heavy menstrual bleeding.

Thyroid dysfunctions can also be one of the cause for menorhhagia.

SYMPTOMATIC REPRESENTATION OF MENORRHAGIA

  • Heavy vaginal bleeding resulting in saturation of one ore more sanitary pad, requring double protection, and need to sanitary pad more frequently.
  • Bleeding along with passage of clots and usually lasts for more than a week affecting the routine of a women.
  • Pelvic pain though not present in all cases of menorrhagia is frequently encountered symptom of menorrhagia. This may be seen in menorrhagia due to infections and conditions like endometriosis, adenomyosis and pregnancy related complications.
  • If the patient presents with pelvic infections there may be other symptoms like fever, chills, copious vaginal discharge.
  • Excessive and prolonged menorrhagia leads to anaemia. Usually the patient manifests in the form of excessive weakness, easy fatigue, pale skin, shortness of breath.
  • Menorrhagia caused due to hormonal imbalance in diseases like polycystic ovarian disease, patient may present with hirusitism, acne etc.
  • Delayed appearance of menstrual bleeding phase with Heavy bleeding is due to anovulatory dysfunction of ovary with prolonged influence of Oestrogen
  • Frequent / Early appearance of menstrual bleeding phase i.e. interval less than 21days with:
  1. Normal bleeding – is always an anovulatory cycle.
  2. Heavy Bleeding – is due to ovarian dysfunction

DIAGNOSIS

Diagnosis of menorrhagia can be done based on the complete medical history of the patient and conducting a complete physical examination including a pelvic examination.

Other diagnostic procedures for menorrhagia may include

  • Routine blood examination
  • Pelvic ultra sound scan is the first line of diagnostic tool for identifying structural abnormalities.
  • Hysteroscopy, includes visual examination of canal of cervix and interior of uterus using an instrument inserted in the vagina.
  • Pap test to rule out neoplasia.

ASSESSMENT OF MENORRHAGIA

  • We should note the total duration of bleeding and how much time it is heavy bleed.
  • Assess the length and duration of cycle.
  • How often or how frequently the patient has to change her sanitary pad.
  • Enquire about the passage of clots. Clots represent heavy flow and are painful as they pass through the cervix.
  • Look for any symptoms suggestive of anemia like easy fatigue, shortness of breath, weakness etc.
  • Enquire whether menorrhagia has an impact on her personal life and is hampering her day to day activities.
  • Enquire about any past medical illness including clotting disorders, thyroid dysfunctions or any other gynaecological history.

MANAGEMENT OF MENORRHAGIA

Some useful measures like general measures to improve the health status of patient.

Maintain a menstrual calender noting duration and extent of blood loss.

Adequate rest during menses.

Advise for proper diet with a healthy and balanced diet to regulate the menstrual cycle. Choose a diet that includes fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, meat, fish, food ricch in protein vitamins, iron, calcium.

Excercise regularly – Besides emproving blood circulation, excercise also helps to maintain weight. As fat cells release excessive oestrogen from body, excercise helps to maintain an optimum hormone balance.

ASTHMA

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder associated with airway hyper-responsiveness of tracheobronchial tree to various stimuli and manifested by acute, recurrent or chronic attacks of bronchial narrowing, variable in severity and usually of brief duration.

The episodes are usually associated with widespread but variable airflow obstruction within the lung that is often reversible.

It is believed that airway reactivity is major feature of asthma and this is induced by inflammation and that inflammmation is basic abnormality present in asthma.

PATHOGENESIS OF ASTHMA

The narrowing of the airways in asthma is due to inflammation of the lining mucosa and contraction of bronchial smooth muscle.

The common denominator underlying the asthmatic diathesis is non specific hyper irritability of tracheobronchial tree.

This phenomenon is cardinal feature of asthma and is thought to be primary pathogenic event in the disease.

The pathological, physiological and clinical manifestations of asthma have their origin in complex interaction of environmental stimuli with locally resident cells including the epithelial lining and those migrating from the blood stream.

The interaction involves several mediators and cytokines that amplify the response and perpetuate it tp maintain continous disease activity.

PREDISPOSING FACTORS OR TRIGGERS FOR ASTHMA

Asthma exacerbations can be triggered by variious factors. Most of the patients have more than one precipitating factors and various triggers can cause exacerbations at different times.

ALLERGENS

Allergic asthma is dependant upon an IgE response controlled by T and B lymphocytes and activated by interaction of antigen with mast cell bound IgE molecules. Most of the allergens that provoke asthma are air borne. In allergic asthma, sensitisation to allergens occur when the macrophages and dendritic cells process the inhaled allergens and present it to T lymphocytes.
Allergic asthama is frequently seasonal and it is most often observed in children and young adults. A non seasonal form may result from allergy to various allergens in the environment.

Infections

Respiratory infections are most common of the stimuli that evoke acute exacerbations of asthma. Respiratory viruses are the major etiologic factor. In young children, the most important infectious agents are respiratory virus and parainfluenza virus. In adults and older children, rhino virus and influenza virus predominate.

ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION

Environmental causes of asthma are usually related to climatic conditions that promote the concentration of atmospheric pollutants and antigens. These conditions develop in densely populated urban areas.

OCCUPATIONAL FACTOR

Occupation related asthma is a significant health problem, acute and chronic airway obstruction has been reported to follow exposure to large number of compounds used in many types of industrial processes. Exposure to metal salts, industrial chemicals, biologic enzymes, various gases oxides of nitrogen,sulphur etc trigger asthma.

EMOTIONAL STRESS

Psychological factor can interact with the asthamatic diathesis to worsen the disease process. The extent to which the psychologic factor plays a role in acute exacerbation is unknown but probably varies from patient to patient.

EXERCISE

Asthma can be made worse by physical exertion. Provocation of bronchospasm by excercise is probably operative to some extent on every asthmatic patient and in some it may be only trigger mechanism that will produce symptoms.

SYMPTOMATIC REPRESENTATION OF ASTHMA.

The cardinal symptoms pf asthma consists of a triad of dyspnoea, cough and wheezing.
In its most typical form asthma is an episodic disease and all three symptoms co exist.
It is seen that the attacks often occur at night, may be due to fluctuations in airway receptor thresholds that may result from circadian variations in the circulating levels of endogenous catecholamines and histamine.
Attacks may also abruptly follow exposure to a specific allergen, physical exertion, a viral respiratory infection or
emotional excitement.

At the onset the patient experiences a sense of constriction in the chest., often with a non productive cough.
In practice we see that the frequency and severity of symptoms and exacerbation varies from patient to patient.
It is seen that the respiration becomes audibly harsh and wheezing in both phases of respiration becomes prominent, expiration usually becomes prolonged and patient presents with tachypnoea, tachycardia and mild systolic hypertension.
If the attack is severe or prolonged, the accesory muscles become visibly active and frequently a paradoxical pulse will develop. These two signs are valuable in indicating the severity of obstruction.
Termination of the episode is frequently marked by a cough producing thick stringy mucus which often takes the form of casts of the distal airways and when examined microscopically eosinophils and charcot leyden crystals are seen.
In extreme situations, wheezing may markedly lessen or even disappear completely, as exhaustion sets in the level of conciousness may decline and chest may be silent which is an omnious sign of impending respiratory arrest.

A BRIEF NOTE ON ASTHMATIC ATTACK.

Premonitory symptoms

Patient presents with Asthmatic aura, sometimes sneezing, dry irritant cough, irritability, restlessness may precede or accompany attacks of wheezing breathlessness.

Paroxysms

Paroxysms usually occurs middle of night with sense of oppression in chest, leading to respiratory distress. Patient sits up and leans forward fighting for breath or rushes for fresh air to relieve sense of suffocation.
Asoociated with anxiety, cyanosis, perspiration and cold extremities.
Wheezing is loud and audible from a distance.
On auscultation inspiration is short and high pitched, expiration is prolonged with ronchi.
Rales may be heard at the base towards end of attack. In severe airway obstruction airflow may be so reduced that the chest is almost silent.

Termination

Termination occurs spontaneously. As bronchial spasm gets less, the patient is able to cough and bring out viscid mucofibrin expectoration.

HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINES FOR ASTHMA WITH INDICATIONS

Arsenicum Album

Its the first and foremost drug that comes to my mind when it comes to respiratory allergies and asthma. Since centuries Arsenic is being used by mountaineers and people living on high altitude to combat complaints of dyspnoea due to low pressure and oxygen. Recent toxicological study in real world chornic exposure to Arsenic contaminated ground water from wells and other sources  in West Bengal Chile Argentina shows that non malignant respiratory effect of arsenic is more pronounced in persons already having skin lesions; which shows that there is more susceptibility of person with skin lesions towards arsenic compared to others. So if we apply it homoeopthically in treating patients with atopic dermatitis with respiratory allergies and asthma then it will yield good results. the organism as a whole shows following keynote signs that calls for arsenicum album; Night aggravation ; aggravation on lying down especially on back; after drinking; burning relieved by heat ; very sensitive to cold; very restless keeps changing position and sensitive to touch and external impressions ; great thirst  desire for small quantity of cold water in short interval of time. dry cough aggravates after midnight with scanty frothy cough with constrictive suffocation breathlessness with wheezing aggravates at midnight with darting pain in upperlobe of rt lung (indicated in Primary tuberculosis Gohn’s Focus) causing heamoptysis accompanying with burning pain between shoulder blades.

Blatta Orientalis

This medicines was first proven accidentally and has an interesting story so thought to share it with you all, once upon a time back in 18th century there was an old man who used to stay alone and was suffering from asthma since many years, he used to get many asthmatic attack throughout the day, one morning he was having severe asthmatic attack and he boiled the tea and consumed it after which his asthma got relieved to great extent after drinking a cup of tea prepared by him, it was the same tea that he used to drink on daily basis, so what was so different that day that his asthma got relieved so much?? Last night he was suffering very bad episodes of breathlessness which kept him awake that night so at night he had prepared black tea for himself after which he slept and next morning boiled the same tea again that had been prepared last night and consumed again . But again what a great difference can it make to boil the same old tea again and how can it produce medicinal properties so great so that it can relieve asthma, and if it was so easy then how did not others find this curative property of that tea till date, On emptying the tea pot he had seen a dead cockroach at the bottom of the tea pot that day , he was wise enough to recollect it after few days that he had seen a cockroach in the tea pot, and attributed the reason behind the cure to the cockroach, then he started consuming that tea boiled along with the same Indian cockroach  water whenever he got the asthmatic attack, and after few days he found that it not only gave relief in acute exacerbation of asthma but also reduced the frequency and intensity of episodes. he the started giving the same to other asthma sufferers around him for free then gradually people from far off started to flock around him for the medicine and soon he was famous, he then used to prepare in large quantity and add alcohol to preserve it for longer period, gradually after it came to notice to homoeopaths that the same indian cockroack if given to healthy humans in very large quantity then it used to produce asthma in that subject , soon they realised that the cure of asthma with Blatta Orientalis was based on homoeopathic principle of “similia similibus curentur” so they incorporated it into Homoeopathic Materia Medica. IT has peculiar asthmatic symptoms Heaviness of chest as if some weight was put on chest pt feels that he is breathing in the air only till trachea and not till lungs ; short fast breaths feels lungs are not expanding completely; sensation as if shoulders were dragged downwards towards feet. general sensation of heat in whole body.

LEUCORRHOEA

Leucorrhoea is an abnormal vaginal discharge, its a very common complaint of women seen in our practice.

The discharge may range from what is called excess of normal to one which is a part of wide spectrum of ailments.

LET US SEE WHAT EXACTLY LEUCORHHOEA IS

Leucorrhoea is an excessive vaginal discharge of whitish or yellowish which is thick and sticky.

Women experiencing from the excesssive vaginal discharge are worried and embarrassed about thier condtion and hesitate even to share this issue with their doctor.

PATHOPHYSIOLOGY OF LEUCORRHOEA

Normal vaginal secretion

The physiologic basis involved in normal vaginal secretion is dependant on tbe oestrogen level. With the rising oestrogen level, there is abundant secretory activity of endocervical glands and the superficial vaginal epithelium becomes rich in glycoprotein.

The mucoid secretion from cervical glands is normally small in amount. The carbohydrate radicle of the glycoprotein mucin is spilt off and fermented into lactic acid. Thus the mucus is secreted in excess and is passed out at the vulva.

Usually normal vaginal secretion is slimy and sticky and quantity is less.

Normally it may be a little excess in mid menstrual period during ovulation or just prior to menstruation., during pregnancy and during sexual excitement.

The secretion is mainly derived fro the glands of cervix , uterus, tansudation of vaginal epithelium and bartholins glands (during sexual excitement)

The Excess Vaginal secretion is due to

• Physiologic cause
•Cervical cause
• Vaginal cause

Physiological cause

The normal secretion is expected to increase in conditions when the oestrogen levels become high. Such conditions are.

•During puberty

Increased levels of endogenous oestrogen level leads to marked overgrowth of endocervical epithelium epithelium which may enroach onto the ectocervix producing erosion leadin to excess secretion.

•During menstrual cycle

Around ovulation peak rise of oestrogen leads to increase in the secretory activity of the cervical glands.
Excess secretion occurs In premenstrual pelvic congestion and increased mucus secretion from the hypertrophied endometrial glands.

•Pregnancy

Due to increased level of oestrogen causes increased vascularity. This leads to increased vaginal transudate and cervical gland secretion.

• During sexual excitement

Occurs when there is abundant secretion from bartholins glands.

CERVICAL CAUSE

Non infective cervical lesion may produce excessive secretion. Such lesions are cervical ectopy, chronic cervicitis, mucous poylp.

VAGINAL CAUSE

Increased vaginal transudation occurs in conditions associated with increased pelvic congestion. The conditions are uterine prolapse, acquired retroverted uterus, chronic pelvic inflammation, use of contraceptive pills or devices.

What are the probable causes of LEUCORRHOEA?

It is usually seen that the mucus membrane and glands of our body produce normal secretions, these secretions protect our body by forming a slimy lining over skin or mucus membrane.
Similarly vaginal glands secrete some secretions to keep the organs moist or lubricated and hence help our body to prevent from infections due to its acidic nature of secretions.
Leucorrhoea usually is not an acute condition, it does not develop all of a sudden. It usually denotes a devitalised state. It involves one or more parts of the reproductive organs.
When our body is loaded with toxins due to various causes organs such as skin, kidneys, ailmentary tract etc are not able to flush out the toxins. As a defense mechanism our body produces profuse discharge and eliminates in one or the other form of mucus membrane of uterus or vagina in the form of leucorrhoea.

Most common causes of leucorrhoea are as follows:

Infections

•Fungal infections

Candida albicans can easily flourish in most of cases and is usually caused due to poor hygiene. It gives rise to thick whitish or lumpy discharge accompanied by intense itching in the genital region.

•Parasitic infection

Trichomonas vaginalis is most common cause of leuchorroea. It affects the lining of both vagina and cervix causing infection.

•Bacterial infection

Bacterial infections are caused by chalmydia and gardnerella vaginalis. They cause sexually tranmitted diseases such as syphilis, gonorhoea HIV etc leading to abnormal vaginal discharge.
And other infections like Urinary tract infections, Pelvic inflamatory disease are also one of the cause
Of leuchorroea

•Hormonal Imbalance

Due to increased level of oestrogen it leads to increased vascularity causing increased vaginal transudate and cervical gland secretion leuchorroea.

•Poor hygeine

Unhygenic conditions cand lead to abnormal vaginal discharge especially during menstruation, unprotected sexual intercourse or excessive sexual indulgence etc.

•Injury

Any injury to the vagina or cervix or tissues during delivert can cause erosion and infections leading to abnormal vaginal discharges.

•Contraceptive Devices

Use of contraceptive devices have high risk of causing infections and irritations leading to leuchorroea.

•Malnutrition

Lack of nutrition, Anaemia, Weakened Immune System causes Leucorrhoea.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF LEUCHORROEA?

Usually a female patient with leucorrhoea presents with the following symptoms

  • The most important symptom of leuchorroea is thick or thin whitish sticky vaginal discharge.
  • If the leuchorroea is caused due to an infection, the discharge is yellowish or greenish in colour and has a very foul smell.
  • The patient with leuchorrea usually presents with excessive itching, soreness and swelling of oedema.
  • Presence of white discharge is noticed on the undergarments.
  • Pain in the low back, abdomen, calf and thigh muscles is also one of the important characteristic symptom of leuchorroea.
  • Burning in the genital tract, with burning urination and frequent urge to urinate.
  • Patient presents with Weakness, lethargy due to profuse discharge.
  • Painful sexual activity may be due to intense burning and soreness of the genital tract.

SOME USEFUL MEASURES TO MANAGE LEUCHORRHOEA

Usually we see in our practice when a female suffers from leuchorroea for a long time has generally very weak constitution.

Let us put light upon some useful measure which will help us to combat leuchorroea.

  • Maintain proper hygeine of genital parts, cleaning the vulva after every act of urination,and sexual activity. Also hygeine should be equally maintained during menstrual periods.
  • Use of cotton undergarments to prevent sweat from being retained in the genital tract, which may become a medium for infections leading to leuchorroea.
  • Excessive douching of vaginal area should be avoided to maintain normal vaginal flora and balance the ph.
  • Stay hydrated, drink atleast 2 to 3 litres of water to flush out toxins from your body.
  • Maintain proper diet., include fresh fruits and vegetables in the diet., healthy herbs,spices, carbs, protien etc.

HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT OF LEUCORRHOEA

While treating with homoeopathy its of utmost importance to understand the patient first and then her disease.

In homoeopathy we believe that the seat of the disease is on deranged vital force and functioning of normal human body and every individual has a different genome and so altogether a different constitution and each will responds in different manner to external environmental and social stimulus and insults on the organism as a whole.

Each has been subjected to different external inimical influences in different ways so each one has different peculiar differentiating trait and character, which has been embeded in gene through ages and generations to shape up a particular constitution and personality.

So its very important to find peculiar PQRS of each case, as each will respond differently to the same administered medicine, also requirement of the case varies due to vast difference in each constitution personailty and in homoeopathy we have the previlige to select individualised medicine or call it remedy.

So in my following article I have tried to throw some light also on the constitution, that is physical mental and miasmatic background, of each remedy type, this will  helps reader understand which type of constitution personality will respond better to which remedy or to put it in other words which remedy works better in which type of constitution and personality trait

Now its not always necessary that all the symptoms of medicines should match the patient’s symptom completely  but it is important that most of the major symptoms of disease that are concerning the patient most and the constitutional background should match at large if not exactly with the medinical grading of symptoms and the peculiars helps us to distinguish between finalising between two similar matching remedies.
