After researching online, i decided to try Podophyllum Pelpatum, 30c, 4 /5 pellets once daily for help with chronic digestion problems and a cystocele. For the past week, I've been taking 4/5 pellets of the 30c remedy, and it seems to be gradually helping. My question is as to how long i should continue taking the remedy.
Thank you so much!

Dosing is figured out by response. If it is helping,
Then try taking a dose and then see how long
It works for. Take another only when you feel
You are going backwards. Too many doses
Can bring problems back( overdosing) if that happens wait. The
Aggravation of old symptoms will wear off and
Relief should be there. If a remedy is curing ,
There will be longer and longer gaps between doses.
If you feel the remedy eventually is doing nothing,
Then you would try a 200c dose one time and
Watch responses to that for at least a week.

How long one can take a remedy follows two rough things. 1) Does the remedy help atleast partially? 2) Does it create aggravation or new symptoms.
So a remedy can be taken as long as it helps with minimal aggravation and side-effects and the symptom profile has not been modified to another remedy. Experience and empirical evidence show that generally patients tolerate between 4 to 10 doses. Some hypersensitives can suffer with first dose itself. Some least sensitive people can tolerate more than 10 doses.

The improvement has not been significant suggests that it could be a partial similimum. Or else in the background work is happening and results will be seen only gradually after some time if the condition is not straightforward and is somewhat deep seated. Even if it's not a close similar, one should not make a quick switch. Once a remedy is chosen and started, it should be given sufficient time to act in the same and multiple potencies in chronic diseases.
In self medication, it's advisable to jot down things on a journal---could be a note book or an electronic journal. The symptoms, reasons for taking a remedy(give 5 or 10 strong reasons), and two or three homeopaths' views to support that remedy for that particular symptom set. Also record date and time of the dose. Record the changes as they come. Review them weekly. This should help you take decisions easily.

From your response, i'm thinking now that i should either consult with a local homeopath, or post my symptoms here and get feedback as to what might be recommended. I did the research myself, online, and it sounded like the remedy i selected was the best fit for my symptoms. That said, i'm not a homeopath!
Thank you again for your help; I'm very appreciative!

But self treatment is not impossible for even lay people. Like I said if some discipline is added it'd be worthwhile with the problems in real world---like not able to find a good homeopath who's grounded in basics and have a good relationship with him/her for the course of treatment throughout, who would reveal medicine name, who would do good work and also is affordable. But complex disease treatment would require guidance here and there.
