The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Secondary Amenorrhea - I'm 34, had only 3 menses in 1 year. I believe in homeopathy. Has anyone cured theirs?

I have not had any tests and have not gone to the doctor yet (no insurance).

My older sister was recently diagnosed with endometriosis.

My period suddenly stopped after a bad winter cold, also after I got married. The wedding was very very stressful. I am not sure what caused the amenorrhea. It may be a combination of many factors.

Has anyone had success with homeopathy? I tried parsley tea and my period started a few days later, but did not resume the next month. I've taken a small dosage of sepia too, with success. Right now I am taking Chaste Tree Berry Vitex and Dong Quai. But no menses since January.

Some of my characteristics that apply to amenorrhea:

I'm slender with normal weight with sudden weight gain mainly in abdomen.
Belly feels very uncomfortably full after eating only small amounts of food.
Sex drive has dramatically declined.
Not pregnant, never been on birth control.
Hot chills.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
We need a lot more information to prescribe with confidence.

What follows is my intake form. Others here may need different amounts or types of information.


It is important to describe all your problems in as much detail as you are able. One word answers and short sentences are not particularly helpful. Discuss each problem one at a time, providing (as a minimum level of detail) the following information.

1. What exactly happens?
2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
4. What creates some relief for the problem?
5. What triggers the problem into occuring?
6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
7. When did the problem start? What was happening in your life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?

Move from one problem to the next, doing the same thing. IT IS VITAL THAT YOU GIVE A COMPLETE PICTURE OF YOUR HEALTH BY PROVIDING ALL PROBLEMS YOU HAVE, EVEN IF NOT CONNECTED TO THE MAIN ONE, AND EVEN IF YOU CONSIDER IT OF LESS IMPORTANCE. You should address each problem separately using the above 7 questions as a guide.

As well as this, please describe any traumatic incidents that have taken place in your life. Discuss anything that has had a lasting impact on you mentally, emotionally or physically.

Discuss the way that you manage or deal with your problems, or any problems that occur in your life.

Discuss any patterns you have noticed in your behavior especially concerning your disease.

Discuss any part of your life where you feel stuck or unable to change and grow, especially where this occurred around the beginning of your disease, or as the disease evolved.

Describe your childhood and the kind of environment you grew up in, with reference to your relationships with your family, your school experiences, and any serious childhood diseases.

If your earlier discussions have not mentioned these already, please describe:

1. The specific foods that you crave (not just like) or hate
2. The specific drinks that you crave or hate
3. What your sleep is like
4. How the weather and the temperature affects you
5. What kinds of things in the environment you are particularly sensitive to
6. What your general level of energy is like
7. What your level of sexual energy or desire is like

When you can clearly cite an event that started or appeared to start a disease/complaint, it is VITAL that you go into that in great detail - the cold, the marriage, the stress - really flesh that out.
